Where ever you stop ask around to find out who makes the best Kentucky Hot Brown. Good eats, you won't regret it.

Try to get off of the interstates and visit My Old Kentucky Home State Park near Bardstown. Fort Knox is interesting and Makers Mark distillery (and others) are in that area. Lincoln's boyhood home is south of Elizabethtown.

Louisville has Churchill Downs museum and the Louisville Slugger factory and museum as well as a true "Bourbon Bar". There are some quaint small towns like Bardstown or, across the state, Georgetown. Fun to just walk around in.

Kentucky is full of man made lakes. Lake Cumberland, Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley, to name a few of the larger ones.

If you like horses, Lexington and the Kentucky Horse Park is a must.

A unique place to visit is Renfro Valley, KY. It is just off of I-75 down near the Tennessee border. There is a really nice KOA there.

I don't know how old you are but many of us will remember the radio program "The Renfro Valley Gatherin'" which was on the air early every Sunday morning. It is sort of a non-denominational religious program and it is still being broadcast every Sunday morning from the "barn".

You can be a member of the audience and, if you have a decent voice, they might select you to be part of the on-stage choir.

Joy and I visited there about 5 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it...a real "blast from the past". It isn't anything thrilling or exciting, but it is wholesome and makes you feel real good inside.

We camped in KY and TN a year and a half ago. Rented a pop up for the trip. We loved Bardstown and stayed at My Old Kentucky Home state park. Small campground. There were some larger units there, but I could not tell you the maximum. I know our site was not level. Enjoyed the area and went to several Burbon tour spots. We also camped at the boons borough state park south of Lexington, I believe. It had nice sites and more open than the one in Bardstown. Lastly, we camped at Fall Creek Falls, TN. It is a very pretty state park. We swam at George's Hole and at the base of a set of falls. Our grand kids and kids loved it, as did we. We are going back this summer for four days with both our daughters and their families. We then will move to Townsend, TN for another three days. Lazy Days campground is located on the Little River where you can tube. It is close to Cades Cove in the Smoky Mountain National Park and only about a twenty minute drive from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, but with much less of the crowds found in those two towns.
