Fun facts about Kentucky

Assure your nanny that he/she is not hallucinating while gazing onto a Kentucky field. Thereís a reason why Kentucky is also called the Bluegrass state. Although the grass is actually green, in the spring it grows bluish-purple buds that when looking afar in the fields, gives off a bluish tint. Once that is cleared up, tell your nanny to stroll the Cumberland Gap National Historic Park and check out Fort Knox and the US Depository. And donítí forget the tour of the celebrated horse farms surrounding Lexington in the heart of the Bluegrass Region. Visit the historic landmark of The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historic Site. Your nanny might be surprised to learn the climate in Kentucky is often mild, with few extremes of heat and cold. Kentucky's grand forests, which were once spread over three quarters of the state and were renowned for their size and density, have become scarce. Kentucky is well known for the distilling of Bourbon whiskey and the breeding of thoroughbred racehorses. Tobacco has been the state's chief crop for many decades. Horses and mules, cattle, and corn follow it. Dairy goods, hay, and soybeans are also important. Is your nanny feeling adventurous? Why not experience the famous Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville? But tell him/her to stop short at playing cops and robbers. Thatís because Kentucky has a state law which states "burglary can only be committed in the night-time.Ē
