Charter a private jet from Nevada to Kentucky
A visit to Kentucky usually includes a bourbon distillery and a fine Lexington race horse or two. You’ll hear about moonshine, the tobacco industry and listen to some genuine bluegrass tunes. But did you know that Happy Birthday to You is a Kentucky creation and a Cumberland waterfall is the only one of its kind in the world to regularly display a moonbow? Clearly, there’s more to see on a Kentucky vacation than you might have thought. Read on for our guide to chartering a private jet from Nevada to Kentucky.

Top places to visit in Kentucky
A rare medical Venus
The Monroe Moosnick Medical and Science Museum in Lexington is an outstanding collection of 19th-century medical instruments and a unique, life-size rare Medical Venus – a life-size dissectible figure of a woman made by casting organs and tissues from 200 cadavers. The museum, named after a late Transylvania University chemistry professor, is a treasure trove of medical paraphernalia that were once on the cutting edge of 18th- and 19th-century technology, but today look like props from a science fiction movie.
A taste of Kentucky in the 1700s
Old Fort Harrod State Park is an accurate replica of the original colonial settlement that was built in 1774 by James Harrod. The purpose of the fort was to keep early settlers safe from disease, famine, tough winters and attacks from outlaws. Today the fort is a fully functioning village within wooden walls that you’d think twice about attacking. You can chat to a gunsmith, a broom-maker, cooks, a blacksmith, a tailor and a farmer for an indelible impression of what it took to live and survive in 18th-century Kentucky. Keep an eye out for the quaint gift shop.
Bardstown, bourbon capital of the world
Every Kentucky vacation should include a visit to a whiskey distillery, and there just isn’t anywhere better to learn about the history of Kentucky bourbon than the Oscar Getz Museum of Whiskey History in Bardstown. Oscar Getz was a whiskey-loving liquor exec from Chicago who paid the city to restore a 200-year-old seminary, which he filled with memorabilia and collectibles. The museum’s exhibits tell the story of America’s rich whiskey history; using rare documents, photos and artifacts to showcase its early days as moonshine through its time as a prescribed medicine and the crazy days of prohibition. You can even see Lincoln’s liquor license and George Washington’s still.
The final resting place of Mr. Magic
Cave Hill Cemetery is the final resting place of many Kentucky luminaries. Don’t miss a visit to the life-size memorial of Louisville’s most popular magician, Harry Leon Collins, who for 20 years worked at snack giant Frito-Lay during the day and indulged his passion for magic at night. Every time he pulled off a magic trick, he’d yell the magic word “Frito-Lay!” In 1970, Frito-Lay named Collins their official corporate magician. He traveled across the country and around the world performing magic tricks and promoting corn chips.
Middlesboro’s Tri-State Peak
Travel to the Cumberland Gap and you’ll see the point where Kentucky, Tennessee and Virginia meet. This spot in the Cumberland Gap National Historical Park is your starting point for the 300-mile Cumberland Mountain Trail, used by Daniel Boone and other settlers.
