As we went to press with Kentucky Living’s annual April Travel Issue, the COVID-19 health emergency was breaking. We realize there will be many changes to tourism events and other activities over the coming weeks. Please be sure to verify all events and activities on company websites and/or on social media before you go. We will make sure all events on KentuckyLiving.com are updated as we are notified or become aware of cancellations.
While observing recommended health guidelines, we encourage you to continue to support our travel partners and other advertisers, along with your local businesses. During and when this health crisis is over, they will need our help due to the economic hardship.
