Entertainment for the whole family is what you will find directly South of Louisville, at convenient exits right off I-65 in Shepherdsville – Bullitt County, Kentucky.
Check out the state’s official arboretum, Bernheim Forest. Hear the echoes of days gone by as the 16,000 acre forest with more than 15 miles of hiking trails tells stories of central Kentucky’s native plants and animals. Bring a picnic, or try the Café in the new eco-friendly Visitor Center.
In 2013, Bullitt County was named as an official Trailhead to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Jim Beam American Outpost and Distillery will give you a lesson on America’s only native spirit, Bourbon. From moonshine to modern manufacturing, you will also get an up-close and personal look into the distilling process as you hear stories about America’s first family of bourbon. And don’t forget, if you’re over 21 you can even try a sip.
If something a little sweeter than bourbon is your taste, Bullitt County boasts four spectacular Wineries: Brooks Hill Winery, Forest Edge Winery, MillaNova Winery & Wight-Meyer Winery, offering award-winning wines in a cozy relaxing atmosphere.
The whole family will enjoy Kart Kountry, America’s longest Go-Kart Track. Add the Arcade Games, an exciting round of Miniature Golf or the Bumper Boats and you are sure to make memories to last a lifetime. If golf is your forte, come and take a swing at one of public Golf Courses.
