Experience the Niagara of the South up-close and personal when you fly to a jet charter airport in Williamsburg, Kentucky.
Known locally as the Gateway to the Cumberlands, Williamsburg, Kentucky sits between the Cumberland River and the Daniel Boone National Forest. With just over 5,000 residents, Williamsburg is proud of its blend of small-town comfort and big-city amenities that make it the perfect place to experience the rugged beauty of this less-traveled region.
After you’ve settled in at one of Williamsburg’s popular family and business hotels, such as the Hampton Inn or Holiday Inn Express, rent a car or hire a guide and head out into Cumberland Falls State Park. Situated in the Daniel Boone National Forest, the Cumberland Falls forms a 125-foot wide curtain of water that reaches 60 feet from the canopy to the rocky gorge below. This beautiful curtain earned the falls its nickname as the Niagara of the South, but the destination offers something completely unique that you won’t find at the proper Niagara Falls in Ontario: a moonbow.
This phenomenon, only visible on a clear night during a full moon, is only seen in two places on earth: Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, and at Cumberland Falls near Williamsburg, Kentucky. Also known as a lunar rainbow, this otherworldly sight is a huge draw for visitors to the region.
With warm summers and mild winters, you can visit Williamsburg, Kentucky any time of the year. But, to truly make the most of your time in town, consider planning your trip during the spring.
