And of course, go see the Arch. It's really cool. :)
There's a big cattle auction you can watch outside Oklahoma city if you can catch it on the right day. It's something cheap/fun/family-friendly to do. Having fun following you guys! :-)
I forgot to mention! Well David reminded me - go to Pop’s off old Route 66 in Oklahoma City - has every kind of soda pop you can imagine. Kids loved getting to pick some out to try. They also have a restaurant but we didn’t eat there. And the worlds tallest bottle statue - ha! 😄
The cattle auction sounds like a unique thing to do. We will certainly look into that!
If you’re planning to drive between Louisville and Evansville, look up Goat Milk Stuff. They are a homeschool family that runs a goat farm. They make and sell soaps, cheeses, and other natural products. I’ve bought their soap for years and one day want to visit. You can tour the farm, play with baby goats. Eat in their cafe.
Hmmm. Just looked at map. It’s actually north of Louisville. So not sure how much out of the way it might be.
Sounds like a cool place...we may have to change our route to do it. :-) Hope you are all well.
We haven’t been yet but Santa Claus,IN may be a place to check out. It’s east of Evansville. Let us know where you end up. We may be able to come visit.
Go to Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.
I spent some time in Louisville. When its not derby time it has a lot of charm. Some nice parks and trails, like the Big 4 Bridge.
Was in Louisville in May for a wedding. its a cute town. went to the Louisville slugger museum, which is pretty cool (and i think free unless you buy something in the store) and went on a tour of Churchill Downs--there was a fee, but cant remember how much, but also got to see a race. Enjoy!
Thanks, all of you!
Louisville--Louisville Slugger factory/museum, and Churchill Downs
Oklahoma: how about a rodeo?
Thanks, Miten Kaka! A rodeo sounds nice! Go Falcons!!!
St. Louis-got to hit The City Museum as well as as Grant's Farm.
Springfield-you cannot go there without visiting the original Bass Pro Shops.
Love following you guys, looks us up in Dallas on your way!
The original Bass Pro Shops?! We'll have to look into that. The City Museum...Grants Farm...WOW! Thanks a bunch!
I don’t remember stopping in any of these places. Might’ve driven through Lexington/ Bowling Green, KY, decades ago, and same with Evansville IN, for both, from and to Cincinnati where I lived for 3 yrs, eons ago:). And might’ve flown across St Louis and Tulsa/OK City, OK..
The St Louis Arch is a must do, I imagine. There must be something historical from times of the dust bowl in OK.
Look forward to following more travels. You have a birthday to celebrate before that, young man! We look fwd to catching up by then. All the best!!
This is great, Kaki! I am looking forward to my birthday. :)
Louisville...check out the Louisville Mega Cavern. St. Louis - everyone raves about the City Museum. Not a typical museum...from TripAdvisor: "Don't take the name so literally. We're about fun. Not your white walls, walk around, and be quiet museum. If you want to climb around, get active with your kids or are a big kid at heart, we're the place. If you get freaked out easily, you might not want to come. We're four floors filled with miles of tunnels, a full cave system, over 30 slides, a circus, an arts area, a large outdoor climbing space, Architectural Museum, a Cabin that serves adult beverages, a Museum of Mayhem, Mirth and Mystery, and a ton more. Also, there's the roof with a Ferris Wheel and a bus hanging off its edge." Also in St. Louis there is Grant's Farm.
That sounds great! What a fun sounding cave. Nate has been asking about going to a cave for a while, and this sounds like the one. Thanks!
