2014 Kentucky Official Highway Map Now Available

It’s a sure sign of spring! The 2014 Kentucky Official Highway Map is now available across the Commonwealth at rest areas, welcome centers, local convention and tourism offices and all Kentucky State Parks. As always, the new map contains a wealth of information for motorists. At the same time, its theme of Kentucky uniqueness – “There’s Only One” – highlights the beauty, natural attractions and hidden gems found only in Kentucky. While sites such as Churchill Downs and Mammoth Cave draw visitors from around the world, the 2014 map also points out some of the state’s lesser known treasures. For nature and wildlife lovers, Kentucky offers a host of attractions.
 
The Sloughs Wildlife Management Area near Henderson, in Western Kentucky, is home to the largest Great Blue Heron rookery in the Commonwealth. Distinguished by its large cypress trees and swamps, the area attracts migrating birds like a magnet. And with observation platforms for wildlife viewing open year round, it’s perfect for a day trip. At Old Friends Retirement Home – the “old friends” being thoroughbred horses , visitors can get up close and personal with retired stars of racing such as Breeders Cup Champion Gulch, Eclipse-award winner Sunshine Forever and the “losingest” horse in the history of the Sport of Kings, Zippy Chippy. The farm is outside Georgetown, in central Kentucky. Animals of the cold-blooded type more to your liking? The Kentucky Reptile Zoo, at Slade in eastern Kentucky, features an 18-foot python and a multitude of other types of snakes. While at Slade, visit the Turtle Tracks area, where tortoises and aquatic turtles can be seen. If you’re looking for something less animal-oriented, Yew Dell Gardens, at Crestwood in northern Kentucky, is a Preservation Project of the Garden Conservancy. It also is on the National Register of Historic Places. With many tour options, Yew Dell is a favorite among garden enthusiasts. The Blue Heron Mining Community, set along the banks of the Big South Fork River in Southeastern Kentucky, offers visitors a look back in time when the area was home to the Blue Heron mines, which operated from 1937 to 1962. Once home to hundreds of people, the isolated community now is a National Park Site. Click here to view the 2014 Highway Map.
