Part of the draw to Kentucky is the quaint, beautiful towns where southern people live in more traditional ways. Of course, they still have the internet, but technology has not taken over like it has in some cities. You can still go in the local diner and order oversized portions of homemade goodies. People still sit outside and read the paper, and there are local activities to do either in town and nearby.

Here are 10 of the most charming towns in the Bluegrass State:

This charming spot in the Bluegrass is home to the Scottswood Bed and Breakfast. Visitors can get a home cooked meal and enjoy the calming influence of the small town feel.
