If you’re looking for a unique quiet town to visit in Kentucky, Berea is a historic college town just a few miles south of Louisville, KY. Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachians, Berea emphasizes keeping the Appalachian craft traditions alive.
When you visit Berea, you can camp in your RV rental at the Oh! Kentucky Campground, located conveniently near Berea’s historic main street. Downtown Berea is filled with one-of-a-kind craft shops and galleries, making this a must-stop destination for anyone who’s looking for unique home décor or art. The Log House Craft Gallery is just one of several shops. It sells student-made items of all varieties, including chairs, handmade quilts, children’s toys, and wrought iron objects. Don’t stop there, though—Berea’s Main Street has many unique boutiques that are worth a visit. The Historic Boone Tavern Restaurant is a great place to eat, serving authentic Southern and Appalachian dishes. It’s known for its Kentucky spoonbread—don’t leave without trying a piece!
The mountains in central Kentucky are beautiful, and the ones that surround Berea are no exception. Take your camper rental a little way outside town and hike up Indian Fort Mountain. The 6.6 mile loop to the Berea Pinnacles takes about three and a half hours to complete, and the trail is of moderate difficulty. The views when you reach the top of the mountain are spectacular—you’ll be able to see for miles across the Kentucky countryside.
