As difficult as the year has been so far, having some time away from the hustle and bustle has reminded us there are more precious things to this life than long hours at the office. Families have become acquainted with what is truly important; experiencing life together with those we love. Now that things are slowly opening back up, we have seen a resurgence of families who are choosing Pikeville-Pike County, Kentucky over more commonly traveled commercial destinations.
It’s Time To Go Outside
Pikeville-Pike County, Kentucky offers experiences that are authentic, that can be shared by the whole family; experiences that bring the family closer to their heritage, and the way things used to be. Families have exchanged trips to theme parks for a stroll down the countryside, a lazy afternoon kayaking down the river, and some good ole fashioned fishing. Tourist traps with 3-D attractions have been replaced by tours such as the Hatfield McCoy Feud Tour or a tour of Butcher Holler, the homeplace of Loretta Lynn. Such tours enable families to discover their heritage together, and learn from the challenges and triumphs of the people that came before us.
Instead of zoos, families are visiting Pike County to go elk viewing, or for a hike into the rustic and beautiful Appalachian mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Breaks Interstate Park, a local favorite for those who truly seek outdoor adventure, offers a wide variety of such attractions for all ages. Known for its hospitality and character, the sleepy town of Pikeville, Kentucky features small mom-and-pop shops and a thriving live entertainment scene. With record numbers of visitors over the past few years, Pikeville-Pike County, Kentucky is quickly becoming a must-see, must-do for family vacations.
