Kentucky is bounded by the Ohio River to the north and the Mississippi River to the west, and is bordered by the states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Tennessee, Missouri and the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Kentucky economy has become a diversified, modern economy including manufacturing of industrial machinery, automobiles and automobile parts, and consumer appliances. The Commonwealth of Kentucky's parks, horse breeding and racing industry, symbolized by the Kentucky Derby, play an important role in expanding the tourism industry in the commonwealth.
