Experience Kentucky in one of our rental cars.
Reserve a Kentucky rental car and head to the Bluegrass state, where you'll discover all of the beauty that this Southern state has to offer. From horse racing and Bourbon Country to the culture of Appalachia, Kentucky is a state full of deep traditions, important history and authentic heritage. While you may think you know a bit about this state, like its famous Derby or its American-roots music, you'll find out much more when you take a trip here and explore your vast surroundings.
Make Louisville the first stop in your Kentucky rental car
When you're driving into Louisville in your Kentucky rental car, the first thing you'll notice is the historic Churchill Downs, home to the famous Kentucky Derby. You can experience the famed event at Churchill Downs by coming early to enjoy over 70 events during the Kentucky Derby Festival. The festival kicks off two weeks before the Derby with the largest fireworks event in North America, Thunder Over Louisville. To explore the historical side of Louisville, take the family to the Muhammad Ali Center and the Frazier International History Museum.
Next stop in your Louisville rental car: Lexington
Final stop: Bowling Green
Known as the horse capital of the world, the first stop in your Kentucky rental car should be Lexington's famous Kentucky Horse Park, home to nearly 50 thoroughbred breeds. You may want to take the family on a Horse Farm Tour, where you can stop at one of the 150 working horse farms in the city. You'll also have the opportunity to visit some of Lexington's historic homes through guided tours, or to just wander around downtown Lexington exploring the sights and sounds. If you can sneak away from the kids at the end of the day, visit one of five historic Bourbon distilleries nearby.
Hop in the Lexington rental car and make your final stop on your Kentucky journey in Bowling Green. The family will love Bowling Green's good old Southern hospitality, where strangers wave to one another on the streets and businesses and the community alike are filled with a bit of charm. Make your first stop the historic Fountain Square, which is bustling with activity morning and night. Take the kids on an adventure in the Lost River Cave, where you can take a boat tour into an underground labyrinth to discover the area's butterfly habitat. Finish the day with some fun at the National Corvette Museum for behind the scenes history and hands-on fun.
