THE PAST & PACE OF GEORGETOWN.
Welcome to Georgetown!
The birthplace of bourbon? Possibly. A small town bursting with
charm in the midst of Kentucky Horse Country? Defi nitely.
Georgetown is at the epicenter of one of the least known but most
disputed claims in the state – that of the true birthplace of bourbon. It
is also the only place where you can . . .
• See a Toyota automobile constructed from the ground up at the
largest Toyota Manufacturing Plant in the world
• Meditate in the only offi cial Kentucky-Japan Friendship Garden at
• Fish in the best small mouth stream in Kentucky at Elkhorn Creek
• Walk in the footsteps of the Baptist minister who discovered
bourbon – Elijah Craig – at the place where he discovered it – maybe! –
at Royal Spring Park
Centrally located in the golden triangle of Cincinnati, Louisville and
Lexington, Georgetown has a picture-postcard downtown lined with
Victorian-era buildings that are fi lled with art galleries, boutiques,
bakeries and restaurants and trimmed with American fl ags and
colorful hanging fl ower baskets.
Come shop, dine and play –
and uncover some small-town
secrets along the way!
