Frankfort Kentucky is the capital city of Kentucky, located about 50 miiles east of Louisville and 25 miles west of Lexington. It is a charming city with interesting and famous landmarks, and many different styles of architecture. There are great museums to study Kentucky's history and special shopping opportunities that make Frankfort a unique capital city. There are many interesting attractions to see while visiting Frankfort Kentucky. The Berry Mansion is one of those. This mansion sits up on a bluff that overlooks the city, and is the George Franklin Berry Estate. There are many beautiful red cedar trees that grow right near the mansion. A Little Bit of Heaven is a place that humanely takes care of horses, and also teaches the owner and the horse natural and humane ways to get along. Daniel Boones gravesite is located here at the Frankfort Cemetery. This cemetery also overlooks Frankfort and holds the graves of Vice President Richard M. Johnson and 17 Kentucky governors. The famous American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright has also built one of his homes here. It is called the Ziegler House, was built in 1910, and was built for Rev. Jesse R. Zeigler. It is a prairie style home. Although not open to the public, it is interesting just to see it from the outside. There are also outdoor activities to enjoy. Check out Canoe Kentucky and take a guided or self guided canoe or raft over Class 1 or 11 whitewater. You can also rent a bicycle from Capital City Cycles.
