Football is in full swing, leaves are falling, Ky. State Parks are filling up and the push for Kentucky’s Agritourism industry is ON! Kentucky is lucky in that, we have many farmer markets, orchards, vineyards and other outdoor venues for entertaining! This week I wanted to give you guys lots of information about the many things we have coming up in the next few weeks regarding Kentucky Outdoors!

The Kentucky State Parks are seeing increased traffic this time of year. People are getting their reservations now for upcoming leaf peep’n weekends! We know the dining rooms have great catfish, fried chicken and ohhhhhhhhh that warm banana pudding! J  But many State Parks offer no cost hiking, leaf identifying walking tours with a naturalist, evening nature discussions and even a reptile event too! What’s great about the Parks this time of year is that the costs’ are reduced, and the friends that you’ll make might become lifelong! It’s a great choice for a weekend or fall break from school for the kids, grandparents, couples or just the group of guys or gals that want to play golf!

Kentucky’s Agritourism industry is in full swing right now. Fall Festival’s celebrate the harvest, bring families together and, allow us to support an in-state industry too! This month I am going to focus on this industry so get ready to learn more about it. Blackberry jam, corn, pumpkin pie, corn cakes, sorghum, honey my gosh doesn’t That all sound so good! ENJOY!

So let’s put it all in perspective. Keeneland, Woodford Reserve Tours, Golf, Good Eats, Family, Fall Temps, Football, Fall Break, maybe a campfire, and oh yes…………. Warm banana pudding!  Ha ha. Check out these great links to help you plan your Fall getaway! Seriously, spend some time looking through this information!
