Kentucky is bordered by Illinois, Indiana and Ohio to the north, West Virginia and Virginia to the east, Tennessee to the south and Missouri to the west. The Ohio River forms the northern border of Kentucky while the Mississippi River forms its western border.
A section of Kentucky known as the New Madrid Bend is not contiguous to the rest of the state, being on the inside of an oxbow loop of the Mississippi River, with Tennessee to its south, and facing Missouri across the river to the north. Kentucky is the only U.S. state with such a non-contiguous section.
