Welcome ToNorthern Kentucky

or NKY as we like to call ourselves

In NKY 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. You’ll find in NKY we do Southern with a bit of German fusion and a whole lot of sass! From how we make our 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.
