The last weekend of September, we are going to Corbin KY to pick up a new puppy. We will drive through Nashville to KY then to Corbin via the Cumberland parkway.
We have a couple of days, so what can we do or see near that drive?
I see Cumberland Falls and Mammoth Cave.
Any battle fields, gun shops, or other outdoor activities?
I didn't realize Rockcastle Shooting Center was closed. That sucks.
Corbin has the original Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurant.
You could also do a show at Renfro Valley.
North to Richmond there is Fort Boonesborough
Any breweries or vineyards near the Cumberland Pkwy? I noticed all of the distilleries are north. I dont think we will go north.
Any decent hotels, lodges or B&Bs in the area?
Cumberland Falls is a good way to kill a couple hours. Across the river from the visitors center is a pretty cool out-and-back hike called Eagle Falls. It's got good views of Cumberland Falls and ends at a swimming hole.
I met a buddy in Williamsburg for lunch earlier this week and it has a cool little downtown area. Definitely not big, but there are a handful of little restaurants and shops.
Pine Mountain SP has some neat hikes too.
Any decent hotels, lodges or B&Bs in the area? Is where my planning is now.
Lake Cumberland State Park
Cumberland Falls State Park (great views of the lake and marina)
Corvette Museum in Bowling Green
Barren River State Park
