Amid the hustle and bustle of the city, Louisville Nature Center offers a tranquil escape from urban sprawl. At its 41-acre Beargrass Creek State Nature Preserve, more than 2 miles of hiking trails wind past a verdant forest populated by 180 species of tree, shrub, and wildflower. The latter blooms in a native pond and garden, and dragonflies and 30 butterfly species in other gardens pay homage to Lord of the Flies by trying to collectively lift a conch. More creatures soar skyward inside one of Louisville's only bird blinds, where visitors can watch 150 species of resident and migratory birds fluttering about.
After exploring on their own, guests can relax on one the picnic tables or beneath the covered gazebo before joining in on special events such as owl hikes. Youngsters, meanwhile, can discover more nature factoids at summer camps, educational programs, or birthday parties, which include guided hikes and live animal presentations.

Plenty people are afraid of the dark, but the macabre minds behind Scream Acres CT push this fear one step further. Inside the aptly named Blackout––one of four frightful themes that make up one colossal haunt––intrepid visitors must navigate their way through a pitch black haunted house as forces unseen conspire to hinder their progress. But not all the frights at the 20,000-square-foot Scream Acres lurk in the shadows. Victims of a deranged doctor terrorize those who enter the Castle Hill Funeral Home, while clowns and other ghouls pop out at unsuspecting guests inside the 3D funhouse. If it's all too much to bear, seek refuge in one of Scream Acres' real wood coffins—but only if you're willing to be buried alive.
Surrounded by thick woods, lines of vines, rows of apple trees, and a garden lush with vegetables occupy 35 acres of Scout Mountain Winery. There, the Schad family has been handcrafting wines for more than two decades in styles such as blush, syrah, and chambourcin. Tucked away on the property, the family also oversees a quaint bed and breakfast inside a country house erected in the 1920s.
Built on the more than 40-acre site where Pond Station Asylum allegedly burnt to the ground, Asylum Haunted Scream Park remains haunted by tortured spirits of past patients’ and the lingering presence of cult activity. Additional petrifying figures, such as a chainsaw-wielding menace and a crazed butcher, haunt the woods’ mile-long indoor and outdoor displays. Nearby, the military has placed a small rural city under quarantine, after an unknown contagion surfaced and spread throughout the area. Aptly labeled Zombie City: Mutation, reports of mutations and zombies have leaked out of the quarantine zone as residents are urged to remain calm and indoors. The Carnivale of Lost Souls treats those that survive Asylum Haunted Scream Park’s three immersive attractions to free sideshow routines from freaky performers such as a fire-eater, a human pincushion, and a child happily eating vegetables.
