A small city with a rich history is what Frankfort, Kentucky is ultimately about. As the state capital and the seat of Franklin County, it’s a central component to commerce and is home to some fantastic attractions too. Here in Frankfort, you’ll find beautiful structures that have stood the test of time, scenic parks with monuments of revered personalities, quaint shops, and fabulous restaurants to dine in. Another fun fact about the township is that its unique limestone water is vital in producing the finest bourbon whiskey, the likes of which you won’t find nor taste anywhere else.
