We welcome you to Corbin and invite you to visit often to stay informed about our wonderful city–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 in Corbin. 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.
Cumberland Falls is a hiker’s paradise with 17 miles of hiking trails that wind through the park to scenic areas. The Moonbow Trail connects with many backpacking trails in the Daniel Boone National Forest.
Corbin is also the birthplace of the original Colonel Sanders Cafe and Museum. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the museum and dining room serve the traditional Kentucky Fried Chicken foods. We have a beautiful memorial to Colonel Sanders (Sanders Park) featuring a statue in his honor!
Corbin is experiencing an incredible era of growth in our Downtown, with the incoming of several new restaurants as well as local businesses remodeling some of our older buildings and moving their offices Downtown as well!
