Department of Tourism releases 2018 Official Visitor’s Guide highlighting Kentucky’s major attractions

The Kentucky Department of Tourism has announced the release of the 2018 Official Kentucky Visitor’s Guide. The guide features unique Kentucky activities, attractions, lodging, shopping, entertainment, recreation and authentic dining options to inspire visitors to take a road trip across the Bluegrass State.

“We are very excited that visitors will be able to utilize our 2018 Visitor’s Guide when planning their perfect trip to Kentucky,” Kristen Branscum, Commissioner of the Department of Tourism said. “The visitor’s guide highlights the best travel opportunities our state has to offer and includes information on Kentucky’s Year of Food. We want visitors to experience Kentucky through our food, the people who prepare it and the people who grow it.”

For the first time, our recently released visitor’s guide focuses on all the flavors of Kentucky. It highlights each of the nine tourism regions across the state and meals from each of those regions. It gives visitors an inside view of Kentucky’s iconic culinary heritage and features dishes, restaurant ideas and culinary trails to inspire new food and drink experiences.

Published by Miles Media Group, the guide is available in printed versions distributed at the state’s seven staffed welcome centers and the Kentucky Artisan Center or by calling 800-225-8747. An online version is available at kentuckytourism.com.
