My Town Monday: Elizabethtown, KY

Our great state of Kentucky, has 120 counties and even more little towns that fill these counties. They are made up of hard working good people, that are raising families and earning a living in this state. We want to recognize these places, some times they are map dots, sometimes they are a big metropolis.

Today’s pick is Elizabethtown, KY. I went to college in the Western part of the state and drove past the Elizabethtown exits more times that I can count, but I am sorry to say that I never stopped and explored. Did you know that E-town is the 10th largest city in the state? Or that there is a fantastic family website devoted to all things fun in Elizabethtown? You can check out that site here!

Here are some attractions that I came across when I was researching that look like just the thing to do with your family.

If your crew is anything like mine, they are really into cars. The Swope Cars of Yesteryear Museum looks like a fun stop for perhaps your older car lover. The museum is free and is open from 10 am to 5 pm Monday – Saturday.

The Elizabethtown Nature Park seems like a great place to let your kiddos stretch their legs but most importantly there is a Veteran’s Tribute with a sculpture honoring all 5 branches of service.

Greenbelt Walking Tours and Parks has a large amount of different hiking trails you can choose from based on how far you want to walk.

If you are in the area you have to check out the Lincoln Museum, which technically is in Hodgenville, KY but close enough right?

In July, make sure you are in E-town for the Crusin’ the Heartland Festival. It has gotten pretty large over the years!

I am sure our friends at Elizabethtown Family would be glad to give some more tips on the “must dos” for you and your family!
