The Kentucky Department of Travel and Tourism today announced the launch of 99 Days of Summer, an interactive section of the www.kentuckytourism.com website with travel suggestions for the 2016 summer season, starting May 30 and lasting through Labor Day weekend.
The 99 Days of Summer website is an interactive calendar with pictures, events and further information to help plan your Kentucky summer travel. Examples include cooling off at a Kentucky State Park pool or beach, finding the perfect fishing hole along the western Kentucky waterways, touring a horse farm or enjoying a cookout with Kentucky Proud products.
“The ideas for 99 Days of Summer are daily snapshots that include some of the wonderful things to do in Kentucky this summer,” said Travel and Tourism Commissioner Kristen Branscum. “We realize that summer days are limited in number and we want to help you make the most of your summer vacation. We’ve highlighted everything from festivals to water activities to museums and truly have something for everyone.”
