Written by Dylan Marson
Travel is constantly evolving and that means making the most of your experiences can’t always be done off the cuff. Even just a little bit of preparation can make all the difference to take your adventures to the next level. Whether it’s reserving unique tours, exclusive visitor experiences or discovering local hidden gems, here's three things to do BEFORE you hit the roads that will give you the best possible Georgetown, Kentucky experience.
1. Explore Our Website!
Yes, it’s a shameless plug, but it’s also the best piece of advice we can give you if you’re planning on coming to Georgetown. Peruse our extensive listing of attractions, things to do, dining guides, blogs, local events and more! This is the ultimate one-stop resource for planning your trip so make sure you take advantage of it!
2. Secure Those Reservations!
I’m sure you’ve made reservations on trips before, and for most restaurants or paid experiences you can probably get by squeezing in a day or two beforehand. The obstacle that many travelers run into, however, comes with free tours. Did you know that most free tours in Central Kentucky are completely booked up to 3 months in advance?
If you plan on taking a free guided tour through Georgetown’s massive Toyota Motor Manufacturing Plant or experiencing the Bourbon Trail at the nearby Buffalo Trace Distillery, go ahead and secure those reservations now while you can. They’re free anyway, so you’ve got nothing to lose!
