Visiting Eastern Kentucky

There will be much to see and do during your next visit to eastern Kentucky. Plan a trek through the Bluegrass state’s eastern region for the winter or spring of 2017 and experience all the best attractions, cities, events, festivals, and more.

Out in Ashland you can tour the Paramount Arts Center in late 2016 and early 2017 for a wide range of live shows, and the Highlands Museum & Discovery Center should be a real treat for the kids. The Paramount Art Center’s Paramount Players acting group will produce a number of live productions this winter.

On December 16th and 17th you can see the play Meet Me in St. Louis, as performed by the Paramount Players, on February 3rd and 4th they’ll be treating audiences to the classic To Kill A Mockingbird, and on March 31st and April 1st, they’ll be performing Beauty & The Beast. Ashland will no doubt yield full days of fun this winter, and the drive in from nearby Louisa is short and scenic.

You’ll certainly want to spend a healthy amount of time exploring Lexington and its nearby suburbs like Georgetown, Winchester, and Paris. On December 22nd make your way to the Lexington Opera House to see the Mannheim Steamroller perform many of their classic holiday hits.

In early 2017, your visit to eastern Kentucky should be met with an evening of classic theater. From February 17th to 19th you’ll want to visit the Lexington Opera House to see live rendition of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella. This Tony Award-winning play will have five total performances – 7:30 p.m. on the 17th, 1 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on the 18th, and 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on the 19th. The drive in from nearby Lawrenceburg or Richmond should be quick.

Any trip into eastern Kentucky during the winter or spring should include a college basketball experience. The University of Kentucky Wildcats men’s and women’s basketball teams play all their home games at the iconic Rupp Arena in Lexington. Be sure to catch an exciting UK men’s game when they take on the Kansas Jayhawks on January 28th.
