meetNKY: Your guide to visiting the Northern Kentucky side of the Cincy Region

Hi! We're Northern Kentucky, aka NKY, aka one of Condé Nast Traveler's "Best Places to Travel in 2023." 

We invite you to come Meet NKY. But really meet NKY. Shake hands with a craft bourbon distiller. Find quirky treasures at a unique magic boutique. Bet on an afternoon of fun at the racetrack. See the world's largest wooden structure up close. Walk across a shark tank on the first of its kind Shark Bridge at the Newport Aquarium

In Northern Kentucky the South literally begins at our front door — where the small-town warmth & hospitality of Northern Kentucky go hand-in-hand with the big-city amenities and attractions of Cincinnati, Ohio, just a bridge-walk away across the Ohio river. You’ll find that in NKY we do Southern with a bit of German fusion and a whole lot of sass. From how we make our Kentucky Bourbon, to our vibrant culinary scene, unique shops, and a remarkable amount of things to do, NKY has something for YOU.

As an Official Gateway to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® and the home of The B-Line® as well as the Ark Encounter, we can also guarantee you a spirited visit.
