The best places in Kentucky to see the fall colors

If you are like me and fall is your favorite season, chances are you enjoy seeing natures beauty on display in the form of the beautiful fall colors.
The Kentucky Tourism thinks it is so important they have a whole program devoted to it called ColorFall.

Bernheim Forest looks to be the place with the most organized event that honors the colors at their ColorFest. It takes place on both October 18th and 19th, complete with food trucks, crafts by various Kentucky artists, a mud pie kitchen, hay maze and this year has a pumpkin launch that is all new! You get to tour forest by hay ride and take in all of the fall colors in that unique way. The best part is? If you are a member admission is free and for everyone else it is $5 per car load. You can check out their website here.

In the Lake Cumberland area there is the option of going on a train ride with Big South Fork Scenic Railway. This is a great way to take in the colors from a different perspective.

Cave City in the western part of our state is another great area to taken in the colors, there are 5 different caves in the area and a quaint little town with shopping and restaurants. You can take in the colors on a day trip.

Travel and Leisure says that Middlesboro KY is a great place to take in the sights and if you are up for a little over night trip they even recommend a cute bed and breakfast.

Where do you take your family to see all of the fall beauty?
