    With fall just around the corner, our team is really looking forward to soaking up some of Central Kentucky’s natural beauty.

    Today we thought we’d share our favorite websites that we use as resources for planning our outdoors adventures! We hope this roundup helps you make the most of your weekends this coming season.

    Check out VisitLex for a great overview of a ton of outdoor activities available in the Lexington area. Did you know that Kentucky has more inland waterways than any state except Alaska?

    For an incredibly comprehensive list of all the outdoor activities available in Kentucky, check out Kentucky Tourism. They’ve got the low-down on everything from hiking, climbing, boating, horseback riding and more!

    Looking to escape, but don’t have all day? Raven Run Nature Sanctuary┬áis just a quick jaunt from both Nicholasville and Lexington.

    Obviously, we love the Red River Gorge. If you’ve never been and feel overwhelmed with all it has to offer, check out this quick overview from the Outdoor Project.

    If, on the other hand, you’re already a huge fan of the Gorge, check this list of interesting RRG facts from Roads, Rivers and Trails that sparked our interest.

    Ready to get out there, but need a map? Check out local mapmakers OutrageGIS. They’ve hiked all of the trails themselves and even marked where you can see the sunrise and sunset. So cool!

    Last but not least, check out these crucial safety tips from Kentucky State Parks. (Psssst. They have an awesome Instagram account! @kystateparks)

    Send us pictures of your adventures on social media! Happy trails!

    Shelley Paterson

    My name is Shelley Paterson. I am a Kentucky girl, born and raised. I answer to many names and fulfill many roles, the most important being Mom for my two kids and Wife to my husband of 20 years. In addition to being a full-time, top-producing Realtor in Lexington and surrounding area since 2009, I have spent over 20 years in the business world, using my background of sales and people skills in marketing, business development and customer service. These experiences have provided me with a very diverse knowledge base that I am ready to put to work for you! My drive, determination, and heart give my clients an advantage that many others do not have. I take deep pride in my work and accomplishments. My philosophy holds to the idea that if someone were to say something about me, my family and friends would be proud to hear it. I am a firm believer in treating others the way I want to be treated, making my work honest and diligent. My ultimate goal is turning your dream into a home or selling that special home to build a new dream! Lets talk!
