Set up along verdant forests, mountains, and valleys, Kentucky Action Park's outdoor attractions bring elements of the old-timey Wild West to the modern-day sense of adventure. The winding turns of an alpine slide send sleds on exhilarating quarter-mile trips down the mountain, and putters propel colorful orbs across 18 western-themed mini-golf holes. Chair lifts and a 24-foot rock wall tower overhead, the top of which grant scenic views typically seen only by birds and children holding many balloons. Elsewhere, horses trot out of the Jesse James Riding Stables, which has been in operation for more than 30 years. At Outlaw Cave, guided tours travel below ground to view stalactites and rock formations sculpted by the patience of water over the past millennia.
Trains aren't time machines, but the old rail cars at the Historic Railpark & Train Museum transport you back in time nonetheless. With exhibits covering eras as far back as the Civil War, visitors learn how trains impacted the way the United States formed and grew, covering topics such as segregation on the railroad and the lives of hoboes. A rare WWII hospital car shows one way medicine was practiced in war time, and sleeper and dining cars depict how train travel evolved through the eras. Guided tours are included with admission throughout the day, and everyone gets a turn running the model-railroad display.

A private club, The Dogwood Hills Recreation Association whisks patrons away from workday stress and into the upscale comfort of its outdoor swimming-pool and golf facilities, which include a driving range, pro shop, and nine-hole golf course. With two distinct sets of back tees, the nine-hole layout takes the form of an 18-hole, 6,447-yard, par 72 course as golfers play through its bentgrass greens, bermuda fairways, and divot-dwelling gnomes twice over. Water hazards come into play on five holes, adding to Dogwood Hills' stately scenery and moderate challenges. Golfers can groom their game or upgrade their equipment by consulting the resident aces of the full-service pro shop or bulk up for more powerful drives with a meal of savory grill fare from the Dogwood Hills Clubhouse, which offers complimentary WiFi and permits entry for 9-irons that are housebroken and leashed.Course at a Glance:
