Entertainment for the whole family is what you will find just south of Louisville, at convenient exits right off I-65 in Shepherdsville - Bullitt County KY.
Check out the state’s official arboretum, Bernheim Forest. Hear the echoes of days gone as by as the 16,000 acre forest with more than 15 miles of hiking trails tells stories of central Kentucky’s native plants and animals. Bring a picnic, or try the Café in the new eco friendly built Visitor Center.
Bullitt County is your entrance to the KY Bourbon Trail. Jim Beam American Outpost and Distillery will give you a lesson on America’s only native spirit, Bourbon. From moonshine to modern manufacturing, you will also get an up close and personal look into the distilling process as you hear stories about America’s first family of bourbon. And don’t forget, if you’re over 21 you can even try a sip.
If something a little sweeter than bourbon is your taste, Wight-Meyer or Brooks Hill Vineyards and Wineries boast award winning wines in a cozy relaxing atmosphere.
The whole family will enjoy Kart Kountry, America’s longest go cart track. Add the arcade games, an exciting round of mini golf or the bumper boats and your sure to have an afternoon or evening you won’t soon forget. If golf is your forte, come and take a swing at one of public courses.
If bargain hunting is your style then look no further. You’ll find true outlet stores like Zappos.com Shoe Outlet or the House of Quilts with designs by Donna Sharp.
