Kentucky

Known as the Bluegrass State, Kentucky is a southeastern state that is bound by the Ohio River and the Appalachian Mountains. It is home to the famous Kentucky Derby, which is an annual event held in the city of Louisville. Kentucky is a scenic state and features a wide range of land formations and features such as forests, meadows, rivers, hills, swamps, and lakes. It is also popular for its music scene and college basketball. Just recently, Kentucky is also making its name as a famous destination for marathon runners due to the sheer volume of marathon events held in the state throughout the year, which is drawing avid marathon participants from all over the country.
