Southern Hospitality In Georgetown

Kentucky is known all over the world for its beautiful Bluegrass Region, and right in the heart of it all is the charming city of Georgetown.

Stroll along Georgetown’s picturesque Main Street surrounded by Victorian-era buildings. You’ll discover charming antique shops, art galleries, boutiques and an eclectic array of dining options from a century old family-run restaurant to upscale dining and casual cuisine featuring Kentucky bourbons and craft beers.

Just five miles from downtown is the Kentucky Horse Park — a 1200-acre educational theme park, home to the 2010 World Equestrian Games and the Annual Rolex Three-Day Event. Nearby is the Old Friends Retired Thoroughbred Farm, a safe haven to over 100 horses whose racing days have come to an end including Kentucky Derby and Preakness winners Silver Charm and War Emblem.

From horses to horsepower, Georgetown is known nationally and internationally for Toyota’s manufacturing facility which now produces over 500,000 vehicles a year including the award-winning Camry and new Lexus ES 350.

Travel back in time to the 1800s with a visit to Ward Hall. This national landmark built circa 1853 is believed to be the largest Greek revival antebellum mansion in Kentucky and one of the finest in the south.

Georgetown/Scott County is the perfect place to experience southern hospitality and is a true “Kentucky Treasure.”
