Saunders Springs Nature Preserve

Reviewed By SeafoodyGal

My husband and I came here every week after we got married to just relax and spend time together. There are so many trails to hike, you can play in the river, and there's a picnic area for small parties. It's a fun place to take your kids as well.

Patton Museum of Cavalry and Armor

Reviewed By olblu92 - Arroyo Grande

When you get to the Visitor's Gate, you need a photo ID such as a valid Driver's License. Once you are allowed access to the Fort, the Museum is fairly easy to find. It is a very informative museum, especially about Patton's leadership philosophy which more leaders today could learn from.

Currently, an exhibit under construction will demonstrate the damage to the Pentagon which occurred on 9/11.

We love to go camping here but camping spots are deteriating by weather and not maintained. They are not level anymore as the rain water has ruined them, need more water and electric spots only half is water and electric if that much. Bathrooms need updating

Civil War Fort Duffield

Reviewed By msj57 - Louisville, Kentucky

Ft. Duffield is the first earthen fort that I have seen and I found it very unique and interesting. It is a bit of a climb to get to it, but well worth it for me. I had read some of the history of the fort and the self guided tour was helpful. If you like history, I think you will enjoy your visit.

"... a wonderful collection, and it's FREE! Thank you" a recent visitor. The Swope's Cars of Yesteryear Museum features vehicles ranging from the early 1900's to the 1960's in a variety of makes and models in both original condition and restored condition. After years of planning and nine months of construction, Swope`s Cars of Yesteryear opened in May 1999. The collection consists of sixty magnificent machines of the past, all museum quality. These are exciting automobiles that stir memories of long ago days when motoring was a fun-filled adventure. Our museum allows car fans and collectors to admire the progression of automobiles over time. Our collection includes antique cars like the 1914 Model T and the 1925 Pierce Arrow to classics like the 1969 Chevrolet Camaro and the 1956 Thunderbird.

Reviewed By Tom H - Watertown, Wisconsin

This is a new, modern distillery just a few miles south of Fort Knox. The family owners are hands-on and very knowledgeable about the area and the distilling process. I love family owned and run businesses, and this is one of my favorite new ones. And-a bonus, the tour was free. Please visit soon.

Kentucky September 11th Memorial

Reviewed By Sam Y - Woodbridge, Virginia

A must see!! This memorial is stirring in that it is comprised of an actual piece of steel (about 20 feet tall) from the World Trade Centers which appears in the shape of a large cross and has a backdrop or wall made of stones recovered from The Pentagon after the attacks on September 11th, 2001. One must see the pictures, especially on the website, to appreciate this memorial and the fact that it was put together by citizens and private companies from the local communities as a remembrance is even more stirring. This is one of the most solemn memorials I've seen outside of NYC.

Somewhere in Time Antique Mall

Reviewed By Ben S - Louisville, Kentucky

We were the only people in the "Antique Mall" this particular day. The establishment is clean and well-ordered, but the people are generally unfriendly, the prices are 2 to 3 times book, so if you're looking for a deal, forget it. It's a long drive to nowhere from that perspective. They mostly have vintage stuff, and some antiques, so if you are looking for something particular and are willing to pay dearly for it, you might find it here. Traveling to antique malls in three states almost every weekend, this is the second WORST place I have ever been. Won't ever go back.

Radcliffe Antique Mall

Reviewed By Ben S - Louisville, Kentucky

Radcliff Kentucky is 15 miles off of the interstate, and a long drive from nearly anywhere else, so I anticipated when I found multiple antique malls there, I would find some different things to see and some bargains to be found. Well, the first part was right. This place has a wonderful staff, and a collection of Sad Iron stoves like I have NEVER seen. They had a lot of things I'd never seen. HOWEVER, the prices run from "book" to three times book. There are NO DEALS to be had here. After two hours of rummaging through everything (and the store is laid our really nice), I bought absolutely nothing. Long way to drive to find not even a single deal. I won't be going back here. The price of gas, and the high prices in this store will keep me away.
