My wife and I are young, only mid 20's, but we have fallen into a rut. We used to do things together back when we traveled more, but now we both just go to work and when we get home we either watch tv together or read a book together.

We used to go for walks, but it's been too hot lately and we will start back up once it stops being so hot.

A friend recommended bingo and we will try that this or next weekend, but we need more fun things to do in or near Morehead. BTW, close means like within 20 miles.

Any suggestions?

take your week's left over bread to the fish hatchery on a saturday or sunday and feed the fish and ducks. go up to the univerisy lake one morning for breakfast at sunrise or late that evening for dinner at sunset. go swimming at billy branch or beach across from spillway, can go for dinner and a movie at BWW's and the movie theatre, go to the local dog pound to see if you can volunteer to walk some of the dogs (they are probably starving for attention and a good "feel good activity"). good luck

Go for a picnic at the spillway or one of the picnic areas surrounding Cave Run Lake. Go to Tater Knob and climb up to the fire tower. Check out some of the covered bridges in the area, there are several within 20 miles or so. Go to Carter Caves, take a cave tour, swimming in their pool, picnic in their picnic area, go horseback riding or go hiking. There are several long trails there. They also have an awesome Sunday morning/lunch buffet.

If you can do something further away, go to the Red River Gorge. It's gorgeous and a nice day's activity, they even have an aerial tramway that takes you to the top and back down for little $$$ if you wish.

With a little ingenuity, there are many things to do in the area. The other day my husband and I grabbed a light lunch at the Taco Bell drive-thru and took it down to the city park. We parked facing the creek behind the dam and while we were there we were watching the turtles sun themselves and a beaver cut down branches to build with.

Those are all very good ideas. I think I will try a few of them myself. Seems like a dull summer but mostly because me and my husband work a lot and when we get time off there are so many other things to do. We just need to take time for ourselves once in a while. Thanks!

Exactly! During this economic slowdown, I think many people (like us) are looking for things to do close to home that do not cost an arm and a leg. I think all too often we are so geared towards being entertained by something/someone that we forget how to create our own simple pleasures. There are many out there if you just stop, think of what's around here and get creative.

Even taking in a matinee movie can be a cheap pastime if you don't go crazy at the concessions area. LOL BTW, if you haven't seen Cowboys and Aliens, GO! It's great! We went Saturday afternoon and the theater was packed.

There's nothing fun (and by that, I mean the typical definition of "fun") to do in Morehead. MOVE.
