Nicholas County lies in the Bluegrass area of Kentucky just 35 miles northeast of Lexington, and an easy two hour drive from Louisville or Cincinnati. The general region is noted for its scenic beauty, history, horse farms and hospitality. Nicholas County has a picturesque rural character. Its rolling countryside is typical of the Bluegrass belt where winding roads lead past manicured farms, through wooded glades and small villages.
We cordially invite you to visit our county, enjoy our community and spend a day touring our sites.
