Beech Bend Park: Bowling Green, Kentucky

Oh, what a bad blogger I've been. So much attention these days goes to the food blog and other deadlines and I neglect this one. But this year I really do intend to share more of our travels here. Tonight I happen to come across photos from one of my favorite trips - one to Kentucky. We've been there 4 times now, I believe, and each time visited Cave Country and and I love how much there is to offer and how many varying types of attractions there are.

We've toured several caves and even took a boat ride through a cave. We've walked among life-sized dinosaur replicas. We've seen Corvettes on the assembly line. We've watched an Old Wild West show. We've ridden an Alpine Slide, bumper cars, cable cars, horses, carousels, go karts and more. We've swam and gone down water slides. We've seen deer grazing outside our window when we stayed in the National Park. We've visited the Wildlife Museum. We've seen Australian animals close up, milked cows and fed exotic birds. There's just so much to see and do.

On most trips, the kids beg to seek out some kind of amusement or theme park and there are several of varying sizes in that area. One that we have visited twice and really enjoyed was Beech Bend. It's got an ample size amusement park and a nice water park. On this below zero day here in Chicago, it's nice to peek at these summer scenes and know they aren't too far away.
