Review of General Butler State Park

With the energy levels running high and the entertainment budget level low, Kentucky State Parks are the perfect solution for summer vacation.

There was a roadside shop that had

Review of Beech Bend Park

Beech Bend Park is an amusement park, water park, campground and race track located in Warren County, Kentucky, just outside the limits of the city of Bowling Green.

Review of the Blackfish Bison Ranch Tours

Blackfish Bison Ranch is located east of Lexington on 242 acres in Winchester, Kentucky. The co-owner and manager, Brandeon Hampton, lives on the farm year-round and does pretty much everything for the buffalo herd from naming them, to vaccinating them, to driving them across the river to Memphis Meats in Indiana when that time comes. Our tour spent about an hour in the log cabin listening and looking at all things buffalo. My kids were well educated and entertained. Brandeon talks about the buffalo, land, history, and the spiritual relationship between buffalo, man, and God. Did you know that buffalo
