Life is Good in Kentucky’s I-71 Corridor

Within the I-71 Corridor are five counties, each with distinctive amenities, resources, and qualities. The Kentucky I-71 Economic Development Alliance serves the counties of Carroll, Gallatin, Henry, Oldham, and Owen in Kentucky. While each county has its own southern charm and culture, as an alliance, they provide a strong, cohesive and friendly area.

Best of Both Worlds

Kentucky’s I-71 Corridor is where Louisville and Cincinnati meet. For residents, this provides an opportunity to be 45 minutes from a big city while living in a safe and family-friendly community. Our region boasts a high quality of life that includes outstanding schools offering hands-on learning, access to beautiful lakes and rivers, wineries, distilleries, museums, events, hunting, fishing, boating and so much more! Plus, our cost of living is lower, making it easier to enjoy life. 

Many of Kentucky’s most memorable and family-friendly festivals are held here, including the Kentucky Renaissance Fair. When you’re not busy attending a festival, celebrate the fact that 95% of the world’s Bourbon is processed in Kentucky with a trip down the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Many of these distilleries are located within the I-71 Corridor and easily accessed from any point within the KIEDA region. 

Families looking to escape the city enjoy our region’s awe-inspiring parks and trails and the ability to explore acres of nature preserve. General Butler State Resort Park is an excellent spot to do it. Stay overnight in their cozy cottages, bring the RV or tent camp. The park also extends amenities such as the General Butler Conference Center, Two Rivers Restaurant, Port William’s Lounge, and Butler-Turpin State Historic House.
