We are excited to announce that our commonwealth’s capital city of Frankfort has been selected by the folks at Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine to be a contender in their annual Top Towns contest on their blueridgeoutdoors.com website. A contest made possible by the support of Blue Mountain Brewery!

It should be no secret that the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic boasts dozens of zip codes with vibrant outdoor scenes, an active lifestyle, and access to amazing adventures. Now we are asking you to select your favorites.

Who will be crowned the South’s top 3 outdoor towns in 2016? Their team has narrowed the field to 48 contenders spanning small towns to large cities. They are mountain biking meccas, whitewater oases, climbing paradises, and hiking nirvanas. Some are long established while others are quickly growing on the radars of our readers and outdoor enthusiasts everywhere.

Vote every 24 hours for Frankfort, KY. on multiple devices! The contest runs for six weeks until September 19, and winners will be highlighted both online and in the November issue of Blue Ridge Outdoors. So we hope that all of Frankfort/Franklin County Tourism’s (Destination Frankfort) fans, followers, residents, and area businesses will support our effort by getting the word out and sharing the news that we are in the running!
