A good portion of last year was spent making fun of the Commonwealth of Kentucky (I mean, come on, the commonwealth…). Sure, there are sections of highway where the houses alternate between million dollar mansions and burned out trailers (with equal numbers of each over any ten mile stretch). But the commonwealth also has a great deal of natural beauty and a lot of friendly people.
With this in mind, I offer my apology to the Commonwealth of Kentucky for all of the bank jokes that I wrote. And for all of the off-handed comments that I offered (even though they were mostly in good fun). I also vow to vacation more often in Kentucky and I offer the following photos of Lake Barkley State Park (Cadiz, KY) as reasons why:
Kentucky has 25 state parks, all of which have superior lodging and activities for the whole family. Visit them here.
