What Is Your Favorite Ky. Adventure Travel Site?
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- Is it climbing Natural Bridge, hiking between Land Between the Lakes, spelunking through Mammoth Cave or trekking down the trails on an ATV? Is your favorite adventure spot a less-traveled destination? We want to hear from you!
Tourism Commissioner Randy Fiveash is asking adventure enthusiasts to name their favorite spots in Kentucky. Adventure lovers can log onto www.KYUnbridledAdventure.com, name the location and explain why.
“We want to hear from people all over the state so we can showcase our assets to the rest of the country,” said Fiveash. “We also want to have some fun by having adventure lovers rate their top destinations and let us know why they’re special. Kentucky has such a wide variety of adventure sports, from hiking to whitewater rafting, we want to find out which places are the state’s top thrill spots.
“For some people, an adventure is a wild ride, while for others, it’s a walk in the woods,” said Fiveash. “There are so many possible adventure activities in Kentucky, we want to tell others about everything we have to offer.”
Earlier, Fiveash also issued a request to the operators of adventure travel venues throughout Kentucky to register their locations on the adventure travel Web site. The Kentucky Department of Tourism is cataloging these spots to provide a more complete picture of all adventure opportunities offered in the state.
The adventure travel market is one of the fastest growing tourism niches in the country. The Kentucky Department of Tourism has started a campaign, “Kentucky Unbridled Adventure,” to better capture its share of the market. The campaign will include more marketing, promotions and an interactive Web site.
