HERE ARE FOUR PICKS FOR THIS WEEK IN LOUISVILLE THAT ARE SURE TO ENTERTAIN YOU AND THE WHOLE FAMILY
(1) Start your morning with a stop at Plehns Bakery in the heart of St. Matthews. This neighborhood bakery has been in business on the corner of Shelbyville Road for over 40 years. They sell a wonderful assortment of cookies, cakes, donuts and breads and even have soups and sandwich spreads to take out or eat at the old fashioned soda counter. I have been taking my children here for ever and buying their pasties for the inn for years.
(3) Locust Grove Historic Home is a great place to visit at any time of the year. The house and grounds offer visitors different activities year round. But the house is especially gorgeous at Christmas time. Saturday, December 8, from 12 Noon to 7 PM the house will be open for Christmastide. Visitors will be able to go behind the scenes and see the how the original Croghan family would have welcomed family and friends during the holidays in 1816. The home will be filled with the sights, sounds and smells of the that time along with music and card playing. Wander into the outdoor hearth kitchen to talk with the cook.
The visitors center and holiday craft market will be open too. Adults $6, Children and teens $3 and Children under 6 are free. For more information contact www.locustgrove.org
(4) Lights Under Louisville I'm sure there are lots of Christmas light displays in other towns and even in Louisville but I don't know of any others that are under ground! The Louisville Mega Cavern is open year round with the only underground zip line in the world and many of my guests have enjoyed going to that. But this time of year the cavern is open for the Christmas light show. It is amazing with over 3 million points of light and 850 light displays!
You can drive through in the comfort of your own car at night or new this year you can take and open air tram tour through during the day. The daily tram tour ends with children being served milk and cookies in the Winter Wonderland.
Prices vary depending on whether you have a car, bus or limo To find more information on the prices and hours that they are open go to www.louisvillemegacavern.com
