Kentucky’s Great River Road

Of the ten states that border the Mississippi River, Kentucky has the smallest amount of riverfront, just 60 miles. With space limited, there aren’t many towns on the river (Wickliffe, Columbus, and Hickman), but Kentucky can claim one of the most unusual geographic locations in the country: an exclave called Kentucky Bend or Bubbleland. This is a small area of few people and large farms tucked into a Mississippi River meander that doesn’t have a land border with the rest of the state.
