Southern charm is overflowing in Corbin. With trails, local restaurants, a rich history and several lakes, the Corbin area truly does have something for everyone.

Arguably, the most famous attraction in Corbin is Lake Cumberland, home of the elusive moonbow. A moonbow can only be seen at a few waterfalls around the world, and Cumberland Falls is one of them.
