The Frankfort center point is around the area of Historical Preservation and the area of Kentucky Military History Museum.

When people recite the state capitals, they usually stumble over Frankfort, the capital of Kentucky. With cities such as Lexington and Louisville, Frankfort often sits on the backburner, but a trip to the city is sure to quell that thought. The reason that Frankfort is often overlooked is that it lies miles from I-64, right along the banks of the Kentucky River, but out of sight. Most capitals are easily visible from the Interstate, causing travelers to veer off course to check it out. Don't make the mistake of bypassing Frankfort. More from this guide...

In the 1780s, after an Indian attack killed settler and pioneer Stephen Frank, the area became known as Frank's Ford, which eventually turned into Frankfort. In 1830, Frankfort became the state capital of Kentucky, a title which it still has today. The downtown area has a homely, Southern feel, with locals throwing around a charm that's warm and inviting.

When to Visit Frankfort, KY

The stunning scenery surrounding Frankfort bursts into bloom in the springtime, making it the best time to visit. With dozens of gardens surrounding the government buildings, and temperatures in the 60s and 70s, you can walk around and soak up the atmosphere. Hotel demand is moderate during this time, so you should be able to find a hotel room at a price you'll love.

Summer can swelter in Frankfort, with temperatures bordering triple digits and high humidity to match. Many Kentuckians and southerners visit Frankfort during this time, so you may want to book early to get the hotel to fit your tastes and budget.

During winter, crowds clear out and Frankfort is yours to explore without any congestion or hassle. Although the flowers and the leaves on the trees are long gone, there's still a quaint beauty about Frankfort that you can't quite put your finger on. The river looks majestic and the surrounding bluffs offer beautiful views, perfect for photo ops. You can get a hotel room at the lowest rate of the year at this time.

In fall, Frankfort is at the height of its beauty, or at least even with springtime. The leaves begin to change colors to vibrant hues of orange, yellow, or red, transforming the countryside into a setting worthy of a painting. Temperatures stay in the 50s and 60s for most of this time, but you may want to pack a jacket, as the weather can change quickly and without notice. Depending on what's going on around town, hotel prices can vary, so make sure to book well in advance.

Top Attractions and Destinations in Frankfort, KY

No trip to Frankfort is complete without a visit to a few of the historic buildings in the city. The Old Governor's Mansion is just one of these places. Built in 1792, this mansion is the oldest official executive residence in the country, going back even further than the White House. Thirty-three governors have lived in the house, and seven Presidents have visited.

Another must-stop destination for the architectural and historical fan is the Old Capitol Building. Constructed in 1830 in a Greek Revival style, this building served as the center of government in Kentucky until 1910. Take a tour to get the most out of your visit here. To complete your exploration of Frankfort, take a tour of the new Kentucky State Capitol. Completed in 1910, this Beaux Arts inspired building has decorative murals, sculptures of politicians, and 70 columns, and is often regarded as the most beautiful capitol building in the country.

If you're an amateur, professional, or aspiring photographer, head to the scenic outlook on Louisville Road, just outside of the city. This roadside spot provides a majestic view of the city and the State Capitol, nestled in the midst of the Kentucky River Valley. Go during the fall for a colorful visual spectacle.

Though some may consider it a bit morbid, a venture over to the Frankfort Cemetery is warranted for the history buff. It's here that you'll find the final resting place of American frontiersman Daniel Boone and his wife, Rebecca. Over the latter half of the 18th century, Boone blazed trails through Kentucky, Tennessee, and North Carolina, before finally retiring in Missouri. Still, his grave inspires nearly every visitor that comes its way.

No matter what you love to do, you'll find it in Frankfort. Use Hotelplanner to help you find the perfect hotel for your vacation or weekend getaway.
