Daniel Boone once said, “Heaven must be a Kentucky kind of place.” And if you ask any person who calls the Bluegrass State home you won’t find one who disagrees with that statement. And for you? Well, heaven sounds pretty nice. And you like Daniel Boone. From bourbon and mint juleps to the thoroughbreds racing around Churchill Downs and everything in between, your stay will be anything, but uneventful.
Your day in this small town in the middle of the Bluegrass region will begin with a trip back in time when you leave one of our Nicholasville hotels and visit the Camp Nelson Civil War Heritage Park. Step inside one of the refugee shanty replicas and get a sense of what it was like to be a new recruit camped in the vast wilderness of the “frontier.” And if you thought that brings you back to the 1860s, just wait until the battle re-enactment. The antique guns and smell of gunpowder remind you of days long ago.
Before retiring back to one of our hotels in Nicholasville, KY, treat yourself to an afternoon glass of liquid silk and fine dining at Chrisman Mill Vineyards. The pairings of vidal blanc with Buffalo chicken wings, ensemble with hot browns, and blackberry table wine with chocolate desserts may be a life-changing experience.
It’s nice to relax in this little town, but you need to see what lies beyond its borders. Slip behind the wheel of one of our Nicholasville rental cars and take an 80-mile cruise west. You’ll pass by the college town of Lexington, make your way through the capital city of Frankfort, and finally arrive in “The ‘Ville.” Stretch your legs by biking the parkways of the three major parks. Or maybe paying your respects to one of the planet’s greatest athletes at the Muhammad Ali Center. By day’s end, you’ll be ready for a bourbon at the lobby bar in one of our hotels in Louisville.
The time to take advantage of Travelocity’s fine deals on hotels near Nicholasville, KY is now. Whether heaven exists or not it is up to the individual decide, but a small slice of it exists in Kentucky.
