This Blue Grass State of Kentucky Motorcade will be literally packed with amazing and extraordinary places just waiting for our arrival. We’ll begin in Bowling Green, where you can imagine yourself in the driver’s seat of America’s sports car at the National Corvette Museum. Located in a 68,000 square-foot superstructure featuring
and amazing 11 story living chronicle of the famous race cars and
high sky-dome, the museum is a Corvette. It features rare classics, exotic experimental models. Every

assembly plant. We of a 1930s nightclub
complete with a dairy, have homemade ice

We will see the Museum of the American Quilter. The 30,000 square foot facility is dedicated to honoring today’s quilter. See the stained glass windows and more than 100 quilts on display. Take a leisurely walk along the wall on the
historic Market Square. We’ll
drive the Land Between The Lakes, where history comes alive at the Home Place, and see how the region looked during the time of Daniel Boone. Eating at Pattie’s, where bread is baked in a flower pot and pies come with seven meringues, will be a treat before seeing the wildlife at the Elk & Bison Prairie and the tobacco farms.
Step back and return for awhile to
Skip & Gail Langfitt
another time, when life was slower and travel was by rail to an era when elegant dining cars offered a place to enjoy relaxed conversation, fine cuisine, and gracious service against a backdrop of ever-changing scenery. We will go to the Bourbon Capital of the World and watch the process of making bourbon. Originally built in 1806 as a gristmill distillery, Maker’s Mark is the world’s oldest operating bourbon whiskey distillery.
Built by Judge John Rowan in 1808, My Old Kentucky Home State Park honors the home that is the symbol of Stephen Foster’s most endearing song. The home, completed in 1818, celebrated guests such as Henry Clay and Aaron Burr, and became a landmark for lavish entertaining during the colorful era of Kentucky’s history. We’ll see the show that started it all at Renfro Valley Barn-dance Show.
And don’t forget horse country. We will visit the Kentucky Derby Museum where you can feel the excitement of the crowd and the thunder of hooves. A guided tour of historic Churchill Downs will give us an opportunity to visit the resident thoroughbreds and miniature horses.
For baseball fans, we will tour the Louisville Slugger factory and museum.
These are several examples of the sights we will visit and experience on this motorcade. Join us as we tour the Kentucky Blue Grass State.
see you down the road… 23
