a little trip to Owensboro, etc.

Tonia and I got away for two days last week-- centered on Owensboro, but stops before/after as well. It was a nice little trip-- and maybe the last destination for us in our area, within a two-hour drive. (In the past, we've been to Indy, Cincy, Lexington, Evansville, Horse Cave, Frankfort, Madison, and Columbus/Nashville/Brown County. If you have other suggestions, let me know!)

Our itinerary: 

-hiked the Hemlock Cliffs trail in Hoosier National Forest

-lunch at Soup-n-Such Bistro and visited the monastery at Ferdinand

-Owensboro (Day 1b): Bluegrass Hall of Fame; Museum of Fine Art; dinner and strolling the riverfront

-Owensboro (Day 2a): W. KY Botanical Gardens; World's Largest Sassafras tree

-Bill Monroe birthplace and museum

-Abraham Lincoln birthplace (National Park) and museum

-dinner and then, the movie "Nine Days" at Village 8

All of it was at least good/solid. (Results may vary with your preferences.) The bluegrass stops were better than expected. But the highlights were the art museum (much better than expected) and the riverwalk (really nice). Their high school looked like a college building. It got me wondering how they got so much money or how effective their government must be. 

Anywho, I can definitely recommend our trip to you if you're looking for two days away.
