Kentucky state park
Kentucky is a southern state of the United States. Its state capital is Frankfort. Attractions include horse racing and beautiful lakes. Kentucky is also culturally part of the American South. It is home to famous food (Kentucky Fried Chicken, Hot Brown, and Burgoo), drink (bourbon whiskey) and music (bluegrass) traditions.
Kentucky is accessible by five Interstates:
A sixth interstate, I-69, has segments in Kentucky, but is not yet connected with an interstate-standard highway to any other state. The Kentucky segment starts at Henderson, across the Ohio River from Evansville, taking an indirect southwest course through the state as it follows older parkways (see below). The signed route passes by Madisonville and Princeton before reaching Calvert City, at which point I-69 follows the Purchase Parkway to Fulton (the latter road is now signed as I-69 to Mayfield, and "Future I-69" from Mayfield to Fulton). A spur from I-69 running to Hopkinsville, also routed along part of a previously existing parkway, is now numbered as I-169. Kentucky's I-69 is a relatively small part of a major extension of that highway, which originally ran only from Indianapolis to the Canadian border at Port Huron, Michigan, but in the coming years will stretch all the way to the Mexican border in Texas.
Kentucky is connected to many U.S. Highways:
Greyhound offers intercity bus service.
