KY Unveils Multicultural Guide
KY Offers New Guide 

Kentucky's Department of Tourism has released a new travel guide highlighting the state’s multicultural history, heritage and travel attractions. The new, 40-page Multicultural Tourism Guide will provide visitors information about sites, activities and destinations that interpret Kentucky’s rich multicultural legacy.

In addition, Kentucky wants people to share their multicultural stories. Elements of the submitted stories may be used in future publications. To submit a story or idea (or to request a copy of the guide), log onto www.kentuckytourism.com and click on the “Request a Multicultural Tourism Guide” icon.

“We are looking for stories, thoughts, interests and tales that better explain the quilt of cultures that has made Kentucky great,” said Randy Fiveash, Commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Tourism. “We cannot achieve our full potential if we don’t understand and acknowledge the contributions to the Commonwealth made by all of our people.”

The guide, designed as a foundation not as an all-encompassing guide, also spotlights Kentucky's cultural tourism destinations. It profiles many famous Kentuckians with varied cultural backgrounds. And, it offers tips for planning family trips and family reunions.

Readers will learn about many famous people and Kentucky destinations. Those include Mantle Rock in Livingston County and its connection to the Cherokee Indians' “Trail of Tears”; Kentucky's involvement in the “Underground Railroad”; Mary Britton, the first female African-American physician in Lexington, and, of course, boxing great Muhammed Ali.

Copies are available at the Web site listed above, as well as at state welcome centers, state historic sites and convention and visitor bureau offices in Louisville, Lexington, Berea, Bowling Green, Owensboro, Paducah and other communities. Or, call 502-564-4930 to request a guide.
