Kentucky is famous for its beautiful countryside, as well as the spaciousness.
The charm of small town atmosphere is still around in Cumberland County and surrounding areas. The nature is pure and the wildlife is out there to explore. There are two big lakes in the area, Dale Hollow Lake and Lake Cumberland. Many species of fish like bass and trout are hiding in the fresh sparkling waters. The variety of the lakes, the Mighty Cumberland River and the beautiful hills, make this a popular place to visit and explore. This area is well known for its hiking, booting, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing and mountain biking.
