You crave new experiences. Every second, every minute, every person, and every place provides you the opportunity to grow. Where better to get inspired than in Kentucky’s “City of Firsts”? Home to groundbreaking milestones—including the drafting and signing of Kentucky’s first constitution and the site of the first state capital—Danville has a history of charting new paths. The colorful Italianate architecture along Main Street houses small businesses, cafes, and taverns. These, and of course lovely Danville hotels, will be your hub of Southern hospitality and revelry when you return from wandering along the roads less traveled.
Much like you, Danville may be a go-getter, but it never got too big for its britches, as the locals might say. In fact, to cast your eyes on the state’s first courthouse, you have to drive slowly and look past the trees to see the unassuming brick building where the first constitution took shape before Kentucky declared itself a state separate from Virginia. Next up, break a little new ground yourself—metaphorically. If you haven’t sampled a peppery plate of Central Kentucky barbecue, it’s time to slide behind the wheel of one of our Danville rental cars and drive downtown. Just point your tires toward the smell of hickory smoke and sink into a corner booth. Don your bib, keep a wipe handy, and savor the local pride. When the food coma starts to set in, recharge in one of the best hotels in Danville, KY. Louisville awaits just 83 miles away and you have a full day river boating ahead. Make sure you book hotels in Louisville, because those blues bars sing the perfect lullabies. Scribble “Sip ale aged in bourbon barrels to the sound of a sad harmonica” on your bucket list, so you can enjoy crossing it off.
