2. Tailgate a UK football game

If you aren’t aware of the seriousness of Kentucky fans and The University Of Kentucky Football you will be after visiting the surrounding area before a cats game. We don’t call it “Caturday” for no reason. Pick out your bluest blues, pick up some drinks and snacks, and head on down! Don’t forget your lawn chairs and corn hole. The best part? You don’t even need tickets, many fans enjoy the game from their very own tailgate setup!

Tailgating permits do come at a cost, so plan ahead or join one of your more “blue-blooded” pals!

3. Visit The Amsden and try a fall-inspired drink

Originally the site of the Watkin’s Tavern which burned in 1886, the Amsden bank building was constructed in 1890 and is one of the oldest buildings in downtown Versailles. After years of neglect, the building has been meticulously renovated to restore much of its original character and create an anchor to the revitalization efforts in downtown Versailles. The Amsden now houses the Amsden Coffee Club, Gathered Mercantile, The Yoga Room, Skin Boutique by Kaylan, and the Amsden Bourbon Bar.  

With an extensive menu of different fall flavorings, you can indulge and “shop it off” in the adjoining Mercantile room featuring many of the top Kentucky artists.

4. Visit one of the famous Kentucky Haunted Trails

Kentucky does spooks and haunts the right way. With over 10 scream park trails you can experience that will truly get you in the Halloween mood!

For more information on all of the haunts, visit the one-stop “spook” shop for everything scary!

5. Visit the Red River Gorge and see the fall colors

The Red River Gorge is situated 1 hour from Lexington and is known around the world as the best place to free climb.

From its awe-striking rock formations to the plethora of waterfalls and little caves, visiting the Gorge is a MUST experience Kentucky Bucket List item that is sure to impress. Although it’s jaw-droppingly gorgeous year-round, a visit and hike during the fall are essential.

6. Book a getaway at Cave Run Cabins and Lodge

Situated overlooking the stunning Cave Run Lake Fish Hatchery you will find the most trendy boho cabin getaway in Kentucky!

With many options for guest accommodations, these cabins are the perfect fall location for campfires, to witness fall colors, to kayak and spend time with the family.
