Kentucky has quite a few airports, and some cities may cost less to fly into than others.
For instance, if you visit Louisville, you can touch down in Louisville, or you can arrive at other accessible airports (such as Lexington or Cincinnati) and take ground transportation from there.
Viable transportation options in Kentucky's metro areas include Airport to Hotel shuttles, local taxi services, rented passenger vehicles, and city buses in some areas.
Still, despite the many options offered by public transportation, the most favored way to get around Kentucky is on a motorcycle. Kentucky is home to more motorcycle tour groups than any other U.S. state.
So bring your camera and capture the bluegrass pastures and rugged Appalachian landscapes of the state of Kentucky.
For additional savings, purchase your flight ticket on
priceline.com at least two weeks in advance.
What's more, taking advantage of Priceline's promotional features (such as Name Your Own Price) can lower your airfare to about the cost of a round trip bus ride.
