Nestled on the fertile banks of the Ohio River in the "Golden Triangle," of Cincinnati, Louisville and Lexington, this rural gem boasts scenic waterways, picturesque country roads, quaint communities, and lots of friendly folks. Gallatin County has been proclaimed the Motorsports Capital of Kentucky, with the attraction of the Kentucky Speedway. Along with racing, enjoy the water sports offered by the Ohio River and use of two of our river marinas for your boating pleasure.
Gallatin County is small in size but large in hospitality. It has transformed from quiet rural farmland to a vibrant growing community. Come and visit to experience while we are "little, but in the middle of it all"
