Trip Report: Louisville, Cincinnati & Carter Caves, Oh MY!

Jump to last reply

Background, born & raised in Cincinnati, lived in San Diego for 10 yrs and recently moved to Champaign, IL. We are now just a 4 hour drive from Cincy and all of our family.

So, I took my two boys, age 4 & 7 to Cincy for the last 10 days after school let out to visit with their grandparents (on both sides) and they also have cousins their ages (on both sides).

During our visit we were very busy.
We went to Louisville last week on Thursday night with my mom and stayed at the Hilton Seelbach. It was very nice. The lobby had beautiful marble everywhere. The rooms were snug, but the furnishings were nice and the beds were great. The next day we went to the Frazier Museum. It is a historical museum, mostly an armory. They are having a special exhibit on Dragons during the summer. It was really fun, they have displays like the life cycle of a dragon, the dragon body parts, the dragons production of flames, even fossilized dragon dung! The museum also had a lot of swords and suits (pieces) of armor that my boys were interested in. They also had a lot of pistols, rifles, etc. that my boys were not interested in. Oh, and they also had storytelling, partly acted out, stories about dragons that the kids enjoyed. Like most museumes, if my boys (4 & 7) were a little older they would get a lot more out of it. But they did enjoy alot of it.

We had lunch at Subway because there wasn't anything else to be found. Then went to the Louisville Slugger Bat Museum. The tour of the factory was fun & interesting. It got a little too long for my kids (30 min), but they hung in. We didn't really see anything else at the museum. Then it took 3 hours to drive 100 miles back to Cincy because of an accident.

We had a really good time in Louisville. I actually had never been there. We didn't really need to spend the night either, but it was nice for my mom to get out of town.
