Georgetown, KY is arguably the birthplace of bourbon, but it’s inarguably one of the state’s best small towns with midcentury charm located in the middle of Kentucky Horse Country. Georgetown is a thriving little town where you can visit horseracing museums, see Greek Revival-style mansions, get a delicious meal on Main Street, and visit historic downtown shops and antique stores. Georgetown is home to its own college, an arts and cultural welcome center, museums, and even some modern shopping districts. If you’re looking for a small town to escape the madness of nearby cities, Georgetown should definitely be on your itinerary.
Much of Georgetown’s history and culture revolve around horses, so you should start off by making it a priority to visit the Kentucky Horse Park. The park is a working horse farm and educational center that’s been open for over 40 years. The town offers a few excellent horse and farm tours where guests sit in a comfortable vehicle and tour some of Georgetown’s most bucolic grounds.
Next, spend some time strolling down the historic downtown area. Here you’ll find cafes, distilleries, specialty shops, antique shops, and more. There’s a certain feel to Georgetown’s downtown district that you won’t find in many other places.
Another excellent thing to do in Georgetown is to hop on the bourbon trail and dive into the region’s history with America’s most famous liquor. Stop at distilleries and breweries along your tour to get a taste for what the drink is all about.
For the outdoors and sports enthusiasts who would otherwise be visiting the Rupp Arena in nearby Kentucky, we recommend checking out all the surrounding green spaces that Georgetown has to offer. Consider exploring the Whispering Woods Riding Stables, some scening biking routes, kayaking on Elkhorn Creek, or one of the many geocaching trails.
