Beattyville
Nestled in a valley where the North Fork and South Fork rivers come together to create the head waters of the Kentucky river rests a true mountain community, Beattyville. With a population of 1,178, it is the centerpiece of a mountainous, timber covered county with dramatic cliffs, abundant wildlife and miles of country roads and waterways.

London
London's location and relatively low cost of living have helped make it a "Vacation Crossroads" and a center for business, shopping, entertainment, education, health-care and retail. A moderate climate and proximity to huge forests, beautiful lakes, tourist attractions and the metropolitan areas of Lexington and Knoxville combine to make London a very special place for visitors.

Corbin
Corbin is a city progressive in spirit, yet traditional at heart! Part of Daniel Boone National Forest, Corbin, Kentucky is the home of Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. The mist of the falls creates the only Moonbow in the Western Hemisphere and can be seen at certain times each month during clear weather. Called the "Niagara of the South", this 125-foot curtain of water drops 60 feet, causing a mist on the boulders in the gorge below.
