Kentucky is the perfect place to get away from it all. There’s gorgeous horse farms, the Derby, bourbon (and the Bourbon Trail!), Southern charm, a college basketball scene, farm-to-table dining everywhere you look and even a few little urban centers so you don’t feel too out of the loop.
But where to stay when you’re in the Bluegrass State? There are lots of options to choose from, but you’ll want to pick a resort that can meet all your expectations and give you exactly what you’re looking for.
Here’s the best resorts in Kentucky:
1. Griffin Gate Marriott Resort & Spa
This resort truly is an urban getaway, located right in the heart of Lexington, Kentucky, but far enough away from the hubbub of a major metropolis that you can really let go and feel at ease, while also having everything you want and need nearby.
You’ll find that you’re close to a variety of local attractions, including the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland Race Track and the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.
There are several great restaurants and they even have a Ree Jones-designed golf course that was recently renovated.
Enjoy the spa, indoor and outdoor pools and fitness center as well.
