Kentucky

State line sign # 37 for us. We got this clear back in 2019 and I am just now getting around to posting it. It took us awhile but we have visited some National Park Service Sites in Kentucky and now we can blog them.

This picture was taken on I -24 North leaving Tennessee on a trip home from Florida.

National Park Service Sites we have visited in Kentucky:

Abraham Lincoln’s Birthplace National Historic Park

Mammoth Cave National Park

As much as we enjoyed the parks in this state our highlight was The Louisville Slugger Museum, so glad we stopped and the kids say “it was the best part of the trip so far”. Ha ha, we just started the trip yesterday.

As soon as you get to the Museum/Factory you are greeted with the giant bat, you can’t miss it.

Once inside they have a fantastic museum of how bats originated, how they are made, what they are made and everything else. The boy’s favorites were the wax statues of the legends of baseball. Here is Hunter making Babe Ruth look short.

We wandered around the museum for about 20 minutes, watched a guy teach us how they burn the emblem into the bats and now we are off to go into the factory (this is a must do).

When done with your tour you get a free mini bat! Kids were pumped about that. But what they really loved was getting a regular sized personalized bat for themselves in the gift shop.

While the bats were being made we wandered around and found the batting cages. The boys had a blast hitting with the wood bats. They were heavy and slick, not quite ready for the MLB yet, but getting closer.

This place was a home run!! We all loved it. We are off to visit some more Abraham Lincoln sites just 45 minutes south of Louisville. We really recommend a stop here at the Slugger Museum and Factory.

We think Kentucky is a beautiful state and we are cabin a great time learning about our 16th President.
