Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Southeastern Kentucky, the Corbin Tourism and Convention Commission would like to welcome you to our great city. As you will see, Corbin has something to offer everyone! We are home to adventure, history and hospitality.
Located in the outdoor adventure mecca of Kentucky, Corbin is home to Cumberland Falls State Park (the Niagara of the South) and the only place in the Western Hemisphere that you can view the Moonbow! Surrounded by the pristine beauty of the Daniel Boone National Forest, the Laurel Lake provides the opportunity for a wide variety of water and land related recreational pursuits.
Corbin is the birthplace of KFC and you can still eat where it all began! If you like unique dining experiences, Corbin is definitely the place for you. We are home to over 50 restaurants, the majority of which are locally owned and operated. Corbin has a completely revitalized downtown that offers a variety of distinct establishments and attractions to choose from and all the necessary medicines at low prices. Located on Main Street you will find Sanders Park, which features a life-size bronze statue of the Colonel himself as well as a secret herb recipe garden, and educational panels about the Colonel and his journey.
Our city is host to a wide variety of events and activities that will enable you to experience our charming culture first hand. Check out our annual NIBROC Festival in August, or the Cumberland Valley Cruise-In which takes place four times throughout the year.
Are you a railfan? We are excited to announce that the state of the art Corbin Railroad Museum development is underway! The last remaining steam engine in the world built in the South Louisville shops in 1920 is already on display and was fully restored in the spring of 2017. This static display also includes her restored coal tender, and an original L&N caboose! We know that your visit to Corbin is sure to be adventure filled!
When you are in town, please stop in and visit us at our visitor center located in the heart of downtown Corbin at 101 N Depot Street!
