Check out the Shaker Village which in Kentucky. It has an inn you can say at and a restored village. with re-enacters. It is in the north part of the state in Bluegrass country.. We haven't been there for a long time, but had the girls with us when they were younger and they enjoyed it.okay, i don't have good news as such - but maybe you topix people can help me out.
we were planning a family vacation next week - from Wisconsin to Florida with four kids - ages 4,6,7 and 8). We are driving - and to break up the trip - we are planning on leaving Milwaukee about midnight next thursday - getting to Mammoth Cave Kentucky in the morning sometime. Our plan was to spend the day do active things exploring the caves to get the kids tired out and then getting back in the car and make it as far as we can.
But now that Mammoth Cave may be shut down next friday, we are looking for alternatives in that area for 4 young children.
They've never ridden horses, but I'm sure that would love to try that. I see online that there is a park that has zip lines - I think they might like that.
I doesn't even have to be Kentucky - that was just a good seven or eight hours into our trip - and we thought that it would be a good stopping point.
Maybe some of you would have ideas to wear out some kids.(Even if their parents may be a bit exhausted from the drive).
The food was very good as well- mostly locally grown s part of teh village, and "plain" so the kids would likley eat it.
Here is the link. I really recommend it and it is just about on your route.
