Sorry for the late reply. Your corrections look great! The only thing I’d fix is your correction of “watching horse race”. It should be changed to watching “horses race” or “horse races”.

I live in the state of Kentucky located in the southern part of United States of America. It has beautiful sceneries like trees, rivers, mountains and hills and a fun cities like Louisville, Lexington, and Florence. These cities have many things to offer and often associated with the State of Kentucky known for its mixed drinks - mint Juleps and Bourbon, watching a horse race and listening to a country music. I fully recommend Kentucky as one of the best places to visit.

Hello. Sorry for the late reply. I like your creative interpretation. “And a fun cities” should be “and fun cities”. Just remove the A!

Let me know your feedback. :)

Sorry for the late reply. A lot of your adjustments are good! A few things to note though. In the line, “it also have fun citys”, you were correct in changing citys to cities. The verb “have” also needs to be changed to “has”. “It” is considered singular, do “has” would be the correct verbage. The line, “these citys has many things to do”. Again, good job changing citys to cities! Because these cities is considered plural, the verb needs to be changed to “have”. It can be viewed as “they (the cities) have...”. The line, “watch horse racing” should be changed to “watching horse racing”. Good job overall though! Much better than I know I could ever do in any foreign language!
