Kentucky’s birthplace, Danville is a city full of firsts. The town has preserved Constitution Square where the state’s constitution was signed and re-built replica buildings from the time that visitors can tour. Stop by the historic Ephraim McDowell House and The Old Jail to step back in time.

Danville’s rich history includes several educational firsts from the first college and law schools in the West to the first state-funded School for the Deaf and first black home school in the county. Today the town’s the home of Centre College, a leading liberal arts school and host to the previous and upcoming vice presidential debates.

The small town is proud of its locally-owned restaurants, micro-breweries and shops. Start your day at The Hub Coffee Shop and end it at Mermaid’s, with stops at staples like Beer Engine, Red Rooster Café, Burke’s Bakery, Bluegrass Pizza and Pub or Pioneer Playhouse throughout your stay.

Visit in May to attend the annual Lawn Chair Film Festival, September for Eat Drink Danville and Oktoberfest, or November for the Kentucky BBQ Festival and Hogs and Logs Team Triathlon. For more of what’s going on in Danville, check out its reviews.
