The directions from the Roadtrippers app will not take you to the warehouse!
We have stopped at Barton’s twice. Both times we just missed the tour. However, you can do a free tasting without the tour. The tasting includes a taste of Barton’s 1792 bourbon, Very Old Barton, and the Bourbon Ball liquor which you can only purchase at the gift shop. Stop for the Bourbon Ball Liquor!
This was an interesting stop. There was a turnabout in private driveway with a sign that said “Parking.” However, since it seemed to be private property, we didn’t explore. If the owners wanted people to feel comfortable walking through the various stone gardens, there would be clearer signs!
We wanted to stop and see this monument because so many of them are being torn down. This monument is off on a side road on what appears to be private property. We couldn’t find anywhere to park or access the monument. We pretty much stopped in the road to take a few photos. With nearby dogs barking and no easy way to get close to the monument, we didn’t get close to the monument.
The ruins of Bell’s Tavern are interesting! If you are interested in old architecture, seeing the way the stones were pieced together to form the tavern was informative and kind of cool. The ruins are behind a fence so you can’t get too close. There is a park adjacent to the ruins where a traveler can stretch her legs and a cafe next door.
Who says only New Orleans is the city with amazing cemeteries? Bowling Green’s Fairview Cemetery definitely rivals NO’s cities of the dead! The confederate monument is located in the cemetery amid the most unique headstones!
The site consists of a welcome center, the Bowen Campbell House, and a replica of Fort Mansker. It sits in the middle of or adjacent to a park. We didn’t have time to take the tour, so we just saw the outside of the house and fort. Call ahead for tour times!
The theatre is an older theater. When I say older, I mean that it doesn’t have recliners or wait staff. The menu is somewhat limited compared to the newer restaurant-style theaters. It did have popcorn, candy, and hot dogs. We went to a weekday 4:40 pm show and were the only ones watching the movie we chose. It was clean, but the video on the pre-show was broken.
We were at a conference and looking for something everyone would eat. We decided on Chicago Pizza and Pasta. The menu selection and service were good. It reminded me of a sports bar that served Italian food. It was a “Ballad Bingo” night. My party may have enjoyed sitting in the bingo section, but we were not offered the option. In fact, none of the staff told us about the game. We figured it out on our own.
I loved this place! I am not a true believer! I am one of those people who need evidence! That said, I am open to possibilities and think the idea of Bigfoot is fun! I met and got to hear Bob Gimlin speak here! (He is such a nice man!) The place is small, but interesting! The staff attentive and helpful! A must for those who have an adventurous spirit and an inquisitive mind!
