In Jefferson County, Kentucky, visit Waverly Hills Sanatorium. This former tuberculosis hospital is rumored to be one of the most haunted places in the country.
Let me preface this by saying we are both scaredy-cats, Cameron probably more so than Blair. Either way, you won’t find either of us first in line at the latest Wes Craven or Saw 5,324 (gosh, how many of those are out now?). So maybe we’re crazy, but we’re also really excited to go onContinue reading “Are you Afraid of the Waverly Hills Sanatorium?”
We’ve somehow forgotten to mention one of the most important rules in the road trip handbook: Your voyage won’t always be planned. It was by this rule that we found ourselves relaxing on the couch one moment and driving the winding country roads — and we do mean winding — to the Maker’s Mark DistilleryContinue reading “A Taste of the Maker’s Mark Distillery Tour”
Forget the maps and the snack foods, the itineraries and the Twitter updates. The most important thing you need to know about taking a road trip, is that it is supposed to be FUN. On Friday, Cameron was in the middle of moving apartments and I’d been on the road with my (real) job for a coupleContinue reading “The Best of Danville’s Lawn Chair Film Festival”
If you’ve been following the blog, you already know we were really excited to go check out Danville’s Lawn Chair Film Festival this past weekend (more on that later). We were pleasantly surprised (and excited) however, to receive an invitation to The Heart of Danville Swirl, Sip, & Shop that took place throughout downtown right beforeContinue reading “Destination Danville: Swirl, Sip, & Shop”
Post by Blair: When I was a kid, my parents used to load my brother and I up in my dad’s pick up truck, toss a couple of lawn chairs and blankets in the back next to a cooler and bag of snacks, and we’d head to the drive-in. I remember a few of theContinue reading “Pull Up a (Lawn) Chair: We’ll See You at Danville’s Lawn Chair Film Festival”
OK, confession time: the only experience either of us had with Dinosaur World prior to this weekend’s trip was laughing at the giant T-Rex waving at us from the side of the highway. We’re sure you’ve seen him, and we’re also sure you’re probably no less guilty than we are of smirking at the brightContinue reading “Exploring Dinosaur World, and going back to a Land Before Time”
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that the best discoveries you will make on road trips are those you don’t plan for at all. It was under that truth, that we stumbled upon The Olde Gener’l Store in Cave City. Let me backtrack a little. After finishing our awesome tour of Mammoth Cave, we headed toContinue reading “Stop and Meet Leroy at Cave City’s Olde Gener’l Store”
If you’re in Cave City, we have the perfect hotel for you. Forget the Four Seasons, sleep in a Wigwam at Wigwam Village #2!
We wanted to take a road trip Road trips require a delicate balance of planning — but not too much planning — and a willingness to fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants and understand that the most fun part of your adventure will be the unplanned parts. As any good road tripper knows, you need a few key items whenContinue reading “Road Trip to Mammoth Cave”
