This will be a lifetime experience! The associated state of Kentucky, according to the original in English “Commonwealth of Kentucky”, is one of the four Commonwealths of the United States of America, located in the south of them. Sometimes it is included in the geographic area known as the Midwest. In 1792, in June 1st, Kentucky became the fifteenth state of the Union. It is often called as “The Bluegrass State”, due to the presence of “blue grass” in many places and corners of the state.
