Emzara’s Buffet – Diner, Grant County

We had great soups, salads, sides, and a large variety of hot entrees. Then delicious coffee to wash down a selection of fabulous desserts. We enjoyed the fellowship with a couple from Florida who sat down with us. Low prices, great food, very wonderful staff. I’ll be back and send some family members too.

Patti923 – Shopping Mall, Grant County

Patti923 – 2 Bridges Dr, Dry Ridge, KY 41035, USA – +1 859-307-1838
Visited with my family such a beautiful mall!!! They had all the best branded clothes there! Some parts were closed due to construction for new stores (American eagle store, hollister, Victoria secret, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein , Urban Outfitters,and more) I have a teenager so she enjoyed the free wifi and lounging area. My younger kids enjoyed the indoor playground which has a bunch of space and equipment.
I recommend this place!

Enterprise Rent-A-Car – Car Rental, Grant County

Enterprise Rent-A-Car – 1746 Monmouth St, Newport, KY 41071, USA – +1 859-431-2828
Everything was great except the car battery died on it’s own and when I called for support I couldn’t get help. They also didn’t even call back to follow up, which was disappointing from a customer service perspective. Prior experience with another car the service engine light was on.Just super inconvenient and something I had to personally find and resources to address that I did not anticipate doing while renting a car.

Whispering Hills RV Park – State Park, Grant County

Whispering Hills RV Park – 257 Rogers Gap Rd, Georgetown, KY 40324, USA – +1 502-863-2552
I simply can’t say enough good things about this campground. The staff are WONDERFUL. We stayed in a premium spot and the Missus loved the glider-rocker. Nice touch! The facilities were top-notch and we had zero issues. Convenient relative to Georgetown, and a very pleasant surprise overall. Please keep up the good work, as we will definitely be back!

It’s always well kept and there are some great stores there.

Railway Museum of Greater Cincinnati – Art Galleries, Grant County

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.

Hampton Inn Dry Ridge – Hotel, Grant County

Hampton Inn Dry Ridge – 1200 Cull Rd, Dry Ridge, KY 41035, USA – +1 859-823-7111
I really liked staying here. Four miles north of the Ark Encounter, it was a great location. Staff was friendly and ready to serve to ensure you had a great stay. They have a small indoor pool and workout room. WIFI was one of the best I have experienced. Breakfast is what you would expect from a Hampton Inn. Very good. Highly recommend!

Butler Outlet Mall – Shopping Outlets, Grant County

Butler Outlet Mall – 2529 KY-227, Carrollton, KY 41008, USA –
Mall? Yea right, better luck next time when you have to name something… clearly no “mall”. Couple of stores that are on life support, or maybe that was the employee’s attitude. Save your gas and time… move along

Gold Star Chili – Diner, Grant County

Gold Star Chili – 118 S Main St # US25, Dry Ridge, KY 41035, USA – +1 859-824-3504
Visited with a friend for lunch recently and our experience was so so. I must admit that I prefer Skyline to Gold Star, but this was not bad. My friend got the vegetarian chili which tasted just like their regular chili (she was happy about that). Portion sizes are smaller and presentation is just not as nice as Skyline. The wait time is also much longer.

The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass – Shopping Outlets, Grant County

The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass – 1155 Buck Creek Rd, Simpsonville, KY 40067, USA – +1 502-722-5558
I love visiting this outlet mall when I am in Louisville. The store selection is great and most offer a pretty good discount. I highly recommend it for holiday gift buying. Just remember the mall is not enclosed so rain and cold can make shopping a challenge and not all of the stores are outlet stores.

Butler-Turpin State Historic House – Art Galleries, Grant County

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.
