Why Kentucky? The Derby, of course! Taking place in the first weekend of May, this year marks the 143rd annual celebration of the Kentucky Derby
. As if that’s not enough of a reason to head to the Bluegrass State, the Kentucky Bourbon Trail is in full-on production mode and it’s alive with flowers blooming throughout the month of May. So, dust off your fancy hats and shine your silver mint julep cups, y’all.
