Downtown Frankfort by Trolley


Begin your breakfast at B’s Bakery for breakfast sandwich or one of her signature donuts. Most of downtown parking is metered so be sure to drop enough coins for a full day of exploring!


Board the Trolley at the corner of Ann St. and Broadway. First stop – The Capitol Building for a complimentary tour.  You may take either a guided tour or explore the beautiful and historic richness of this grand structure on your own.


The trolley will be passing by the Capitol now so we suggest boarding for a ride to Rebecca Ruth Candy Tours and Museum. Just $5 will get you in for a behind-the-scenes look at how these delicious chocolate candies are made, and the kids will leave with not only a sweet treat, but also a better understanding of a very brave and determined woman by the name of Ruth Hanly Booe.


You may now board the trolley for a quick trip over the river.  Departing at the corner of Broadway and St Clair will allow for you to walk to several local restaurants, shops, museums, and Poor Richard’s Bookstore.


Alternate options for this tour would be a visit to Buffalo Trace Distillery or a ride to Riverview Park to board the Kentucky State University Thorobred or Kentucky River Tours bourbon boat.  But first, please check out the Frankfort Trolley for map, complete route information, as well as days/times of operations.
