About Us

Sitting at the intersection of three major highways---Interstate 65, the Bluegrass Parkway and the Western Kentucky parkway, we have all the vibrant attributes of a much larger city, but remain a charming small town. The variety of hotels with over 1400 rooms and fine restaurants may surprise you as well. Be sure to stop by the ETCB visitor center for your FREE welcome packet!
