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.

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!

Amazing and Easy. After being turned down by Enterprise due to not having a credit card on hand but after using them before for years and having reservations for 6 months Budget came through with a nice car and friendly service! I will definitely rent here from now on when I come home. THANK YOU!!!!

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

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.

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.

Three Springs Campground – State Park, Grant County

Three Springs Campground – 595 Campground Rd, Corinth, KY 41010, USA – +1 859-823-0258
Rachel was very nice and friendly. It’s a rustic campground and very peaceful. Surrounded by woods. An escape from the city. We had to change from a 50 amp to a 30 amp, due to camper change, and was refunded the difference. Rachel communicated with us via email and cell phone. This place was a wonderful campground with water and electric. Was not expecting sewer, because we were told , no sewer. This is not a high priced RV resort, it’s a peaceful, wooded and cleared campground. The bathhouse was clean and the showers were private. We will definitely come here again. Close to the Ark Encounter.

Oh the cars are nice but employees are mean!!!! One gentleman was SUPER kind but, when I went back the other gentleman didn’t want to honor anything I was told, just hateful an unkind!

Crittenden Tire & Lube – Car Repair, Grant County

Crittenden Tire & Lube – 235 Violet Rd, Crittenden, KY 41030, USA – +1 859-428-1882
Yesterday on the way home I blew a tire on the interstate. I was able to slowly make it to the Crittenden exit. I had to try to get home to pick up the kids because Brit had to work. I asked probably two dozen people for a tire tool or four way and no one was willing to help. Goldstar let me use a phone to get a hold of someone. So I went across the street to CRITTENDEN TIRE AND LUBE. Where they told me I not only couldn’t use a four way but I also couldn’t change it in their lot. The one place that could’ve helped wouldn’t. It was an emergency and they sat there without remorse. I then went to Ezy stop and they went above and beyond to help me with a four way and to get home to my kids. It blows my mind how no one is willing to stop and help someone out anymore.
