Plan Your Visit

Take time to plan a longer stay in beautiful Paris, Kentucky. We are 20 minutes from Lexington and the Kentucky Horse Park. Shop and eat in Paris’s walkable downtown or tour Claiborne Farm, the breeding farm of many famous race horses.

You can also visit the historical Duncan Tavern, which will be open from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday, May 12 so Storytelling Festival visitors can enjoy a special opportunity to visit Kentucky’s oldest standing tavern. Duncan Tavern is located at 323 High Street and also offers coffee, tea and delicious treats.
