Calling all bourbon lovers: My Old Kentucky Dinner Train is back on the tracks as of Aug. 21. It’s like those popular wine trains, but with a little more heft from America’s classic spirit.
The train covers 36 miles over the course of two and a half hours on 1940s vintage dining cars that are pulled by two 1950s F-unit locomotives. The train ride begins in Bardstown, Kentucky, also known as the Bourbon Capital of the World thanks to its 11 local and regional distilleries. You’ll pass by notable sites including the Jim Beam distillery, Jesse James’s safe house, and the Jackson Hollow Trestle in the Bernheim Forest.
