Some measure time by stars
And some by hours;
Some measure days by dreams,
And some by flowers.
- Madison Cawein, Kentucky Poet
Once you have walked hand-in-hand with history in the streets of old town Frankfort, it’s time to turn your attention to some special attractions…ones you might have seen in passing, or read about in brochures, but didn’t take the time to really absorb and enjoy.
Let begin with the hand Mother Nature plays in Frankfort. Not to be upstaged by the Capital City’s political status, Mother Nature takes center stage with her undulating Kentucky River that winds its way around the base of the city, and with her scenic Bluegrass Country hills that surround it. Her seasonal flowers blanket the Capitol grounds, grace the specialty gardens of government buildings, and form the face of a renowned clock.
