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….

Louisville – 21C Hotel – Check out the cool art in the lobby area.



The Kentucky Oaks Mall in Paducah…if you go you’ll likely get harassed by bored teenagers like I did…
