Plan to STAY just outside the city and SAVE with our LOW hotel room taxes!   Oldham County, Kentucky is the PERFECT Hub & Spoke destination and regularly entertains groups of all sizes! We are known for our small town value, referred for our attention to detail & perks, and loved for our own BIG Kentucky attractions. As a matter of fact, Oldham County has over 10 attractions that you’ll find in ONE PLACE in Kentucky – Only in Oldham!


Here in Oldham County you’ll find Craft Bourbon and Mead Tours with Tastings, 13 Farm Tours (5 horse farms!), very walkable Botanical Gardens, Underground Railroad history by the National Park Service, and Trains on historic Main Street shopping and dining! Did we mention that all of our horse farm tours allow touching?! You won’t find that in Kentucky very often! Speaking of horses, read about Oldham County’s contributions to the Kentucky Derby – we can include these in your Oldham County itinerary!


Without the bustle of the city, we are conveniently close enough to still include such regional attractions as Claudia Sanders Dinner House, the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs, the Louisville Slugger Museum, or the Ali Center, in our itineraries!  With all Hotels being on I-71 at Exit 22, Oldham County has become a favorite overnight Mystery Tour for those wanting to add VALUE to their tours and more personalized care  – especially those with repeat travelers and those visiting The Ark Encounter!

Oldham County – as seen on HGTV!


The Oldham County town of La Grange was featured in the new HGTV series, “Home Town Kickstart” that premiered April 24th, 2022. Tune in to HGTV on Sunday, May 15th 9pm EST / 8pm CST for our episode! As usual, we include time on Main Street in La Grange as part of our Oldham County Group Tour Itineraries!


NOTE:  As with all small towns, a tour group beyond the normal local crowd can catch small restaurants and shops off guard, and we don’t want that to happen to you! Be sure to chat with Kim Hydes, Executive Director of Oldham County Tourism (below), for help booking your visits to La Grange to ensure that your time with us is FABULOUS!  Keep in mind that many mom-and-pop shops and restaurants in Kentucky are closed on Sundays and Mondays.
