Why don't you come and visit the city with a bus rental and charter in Florence, Kentucky and see what it has to offer?
The city's most popular landmark is a water tower that reads "Florence Y'all," which has a rather interesting story. The tower originally advertised the up-and-coming Forence Mall as part of a deal with the developers of the mall who donated the land for the tower. But because the mall was not built yet, the tower was considered to have violated highway regulations. So the city, forced to change the sign, repainted the M of "Mall" to make it into a "Y," making it "Y'all."
