Excellent place to take little ones hiking for the first time. There are many trails that are a perfect length for beginners or ones for seasoned hikers. The bison trail was super fun for our little ones because you can see the bison up close. There’s a neat little visitor center with some history of the area and artifacts. There are picnic tables for lunch and a playground that the kids loved playing on. Excellent park and so close to the city! Definitely looking into camping there soon!

Kentucky Military History Museum – 125 E Main St, Frankfort, KY 40601, USA – +1 502-564-1792
This museum is included with price of visiting the main KY state museum down the hill. Two stories of military history of KY in the building; oldest displays on the first floor and WW1 and later on 2d floor. The state as well as KY citizens are featured (such as only KY solider awarded Medal of Honor in WW1). Limited amount of free parking next to building. We took about an hour to tour the exhibits. We are from TX and was impressed with the effort KY put into honoring its state and citizens.

Railway Museum of Greater Cincinnati – 323 W Southern Ave, Covington, KY 41015, USA –
Definitely a unique experience. It is fun to see the old train cars up close. This place is full of history. The kids loved it. Wear closed toe shoes and I would not recommend bringing a stroller of any kind.
Butler-Turpin State Historic House – 1608 KY-227, Carrollton, KY 41008, USA – +1 502-732-1135
Beautiful Butler Mansion. I think this place is beautiful. The only thing I have never been too happy with was that they charge a high fee to walk through the mansion. I think this should be a free charge and that’s why I rated it a 4.

Noah’s Ark – 1 Ark Encounter Dr, Williamstown, KY 41097, USA – +1 855-284-3275
Awesome place. Lots of godly exhibits. Will really bring the Biblical account of Noah into perspective. You will never read it the same way again.
Ark Encounter – 1 Ark Encounter Dr, Williamstown, KY 41097, USA – +1 855-284-3275
Great experience overall. We spent all day there from open to close. Getting a wheel chair took forever, and that system was not disability friendly. Getting through the ark itself took a couple of hours and was very rewarding. We ate at the buffet, which was nice but crowded. There were tons of choices for all different food preferences. Being vegetarian and gluten sensitive, I found plenty to eat. My kids loved the camel ride, mining for fossils, and kangaroo petting. We got to see Ken Ham speak, which enhanced the experience. I’d recommend getting there as soon as it opens to take in everything. You can take the shuttle and get in the park area for free, without a ticket. There is so much to do, that if we had more time we might have gone back for the outside stuff. As it was, we felt we did everything we wanted in a day.
