BLUEGRASS, BOURBON & BEREA
5-Day KENTUCKY TOUR
MAY 16-20, 2017
Visit Kentucky's Bluegrass region and you'll quickly recognize its affection for thoroughbred horses. Visit Lexington and the miles of equestrian fences and fields of grazing horses to the farms of the majestic racing horses. See where scenes from Secretariat and Seabiscuit were filmed. Visit Louisville's Churchill Downs Racetrack and Museum, home of the Kentucky Derby, and view the giant baseball bat outside the Slugger Museum in downtown Louisville.
Enjoy an unforgettable lunch cruise on the Belle of Louisville, America's last true steamboat from the Mississippi River still in operation.
Scots have their Scotch; Russians have their Vodka; and corn-based Bourbon whiskey is distinctive to the US. Whiskey has been distilled, aged and bottled in Kentucky for centuries. Learn more about Bourbon's unique history during a tour and tasting at one of the oldest and famous distilleries along the Bourbon Trail.
Author and Trappist Monk, Thomas Merton, was a member of the Cistercian Order of Trappist Monks at Gethsemani Abbey, where the contemplative monks devote their lives to prayer and work. Trappist cheese, dark chocolate bourbon fudge, and bourbon fruit cake are just a few of the items sold in the monastery gift shop. A delicious and divine stop along the way.
