The birthplace of bourbon? Possibly. A small town bursting with charm in the midst of Kentucky Horse Country? Definitely.

Sitting in the midst of Horse Country, Georgetown is the (disputed) birthplace of bourbon and hometown of numerous horse-centric attractions. It is a place where you can see a Toyota automobile constructed from the ground up at the largest Toyota Manufacturing plant in the world,  get up close and personal with stars of the turf at Horse Racing’s living history museum, Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Farm, meet one of the South’s sassiest and brassiest belles at Ward Hall, one of the finest Greek Revival-style mansions in the United States, and share Kentucky’s love of horses at the Kentucky Horse Park, an over 1,200 acre world famous equine attraction.

One of the things that make Georgetown “small-town” is the historic downtown district. With over 200 buildings on the National Register for Historic Places, downtown holds to its roots and timeless gems. One can find exclusive boutiques, assorted art galleries, quilt & stained glass shops, and an elaborate antique mall along Main Street. Savor farm-to-tablepub grub, southern fair, and white tablecloth cuisine at local restaurants. Southern hospitality is something we don’t take lightly – so come to downtown Georgetown and experience an authentic welcome and a “see ya’ again” from the locals. They’ll have you feeling like a true Kentuckian.

We’ll let you in on a secret… Georgetown holds close to its claim of being the true birthplace of bourbon. Rev. Elijah Craig – Yes, THE Elijah Craig – is said to have distilled the first batch of Kentucky bourbon in 1789 using the water from Georgetown’s Royal Spring. Bourbon 30 Spirits, located across the street from the infamous Royal Spring in downtown Georgetown, offers its own bourbon to taste while you ponder this mystery. Don’t believe us? That’s okay. Hop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail and visit the other influential bourbon distilleries of our state. Whichever story you decide to believe will be a tasty one!

Central Kentucky is known for many things but its greatest treasure is its horses, and Georgetown happens to be in the epicenter! A visit to Georgetown is best when you include the horse retirement capital to your itinerary, Old Friends Thoroughbred Retirement Farm. You’ll get a chance to get up-close and personal with Derby and Preakness winners. There are even a few movie stars out there ready for their close-up! Head to the 1200-acre Kentucky Horse Park to see and learn any and all things HORSE. Attend one of their many horse competitions for an extra-special experience! Get adventurous with horseback riding at Whispering Woods Riding Stables. Educate yourself on true horseman etiquette at Three Hill Farm. Best of all, celebrate the horse at Georgetown’s 40th annual Festival of the Horse in the fall! Quit stalling and saddle up for a trip to Georgetown. 

Besides the horse farms and bourbon trails, Georgetown’s outdoor adventure scene is on an uphill climb (literally). Grab a kayak for a day’s paddle or wait for the perfect fish to bite at Elkhorn Creek, the best small mouth stream in Kentucky. Bike one of the many scenic trails found around the county in Sadieville and Stamping Ground. Satisfy your fall cravings by visiting Evans Orchard & Cider Mill, an amusement park of farms. Bring the kiddos to the state’s first corn maze at Bi-Water Farm & Greenhouse. Georgetown even offers the perfect spots for those who like to spend their vacations golfing.
