Kentucky After Dark

The Commonwealth of Kentucky is famous for its bourbon and horseracing, and if you look at any marketing for tourism, you will probably see one or both of those things. However, while it isn’t as well known as the Kentucky Derby, Kentucky has dozens of paranormal sites stretching from banks of the Ohio River in Paducah to the hills and hollers of Hazard.

To celebrate all of the spooky sites Kentucky has to offer, the Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet is releasing a special Kentucky After Dark passport. The passport highlights 12 different sites in 12 different counties and allows visitors to chart their visits around the state.

There is something for everyone here – including the always popular Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Dead Man’s Hollow in Georgetown, Octagon Hall in Franklin, and the story of the Battletown Witch and the festival that celebrates her life in Meade County.

I reached out to the Meade County Tourism office to see when these passports would be available to pick up and they told me they are waiting to receive them from the printer.

So stay tuned travelers as soon as I find one I’ll give an update…until then have spooky and safe travels.
