Travel expert visits Henderson Co.

HENDERSON, KY (WFIE) -

A Kentucky travel expert pays a visit to Henderson to review landmarks and local businesses.

Cory Ramsey has spent the last 5 years traveling to all 120 counties finding hidden gems. Ramsey has worked with the Kentucky Department of Adventure Tourism since 2010.

His blog, Facebook and twitter pages called "Map Dot" document his finds.

Ramsey's stops in Henderson on Wednesday included a horse stable, tavern and convenience store.

"I went to Geneva, the little country store just up the road. Good folks in there, they've actually got a salad bar in a country store, that's the first time I've ever seen that. I went to Blue Moon Stables where an Ellis Park champion rests. He's doing good things up there and all kinds of good horse work. Back in town I had a burger at the classic joint, Metzger's Tavern. It was really a good time here in Henderson," said Ramsey.

Ramsey's next stop takes him to Mintonville in Casey County.
