Paducah – Apple Valley Toy Land/Hillbilly Garden…coolest punniest folk art ever!
Mammoth Cave National Park is so cool – bring a sweater, it’s chilly down in the caves.
Louisville – Kentucky Derby Museum and take the Churchill Downs tour…because there’s a lot of cool interactive stuff to do, and when in Kentucky….
