The International Rock-A-Billy Hall of Fame entertains and informs music buffs with one of the genre's only existing video libraries, along with 16 life-size oil paintings and scores of rock relics. Tour guide Henry Harrison schools guests on rockabilly music's greatest entertainers, revealing quirky facts and long-division problems that lend insight into the lives of luminaries such as Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, and others. Listen as pompadoured performers tell tales of making music history through the hall of fame's video library, or view vibrant portraits of legends such as Sam Phillips and Shelby Singleton, the only owners of historic Sun Records. Peruse obscure artifacts from concerts and stage costumes, or model next year's yard display after the museum's Christmas-themed replica of Graceland. In addition to its interior exhibits, the Rock-A-Billy Hall of Fame boasts vibrant exterior murals depicting Perkins and his original band, Sir Paul McCartney, and unruly mobs of teenagers trying to request the stars' e-mail addresses.

Just across the bay from the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, Kentucky Dam Village is a modern campground comprised of 210 campsites, each equipped with water and electricity hookups. There's a cluster of service buildings at the center of the campground that offer modern amenities, too, including showers, restrooms, three dump stations, and a grocery store. The 17,000-acre recreation area near the campground is a popular spot for bird watching as well as canoeing and bass fishing at its two lakes, Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake. More than 200 miles of hiking trails crisscross the peninsula, ranging from short walks to lengthier routes. You can hike shorter portions of the 58-mile North-South Trail, which spans the entire length of the Land Between the Lakes. While hiking, you may catch a glimpse of wildlife including white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, foxes, and coyotes.

Although it's home to more than 50 species of exotic animals, Lazy L Safari Park doesn't have much in common with your average zoo. At this family-run agritourism and ranch operation, visitors don't just stare at animals from behind a glass barrier; instead, they interact with animals such as deer, antelope, and more. Whether they're admiring a powerful Burmese python, staring into the eyes of a Ring-tailed lemur, or feeding a flock of cheery parakeets, visitors get up close and personal at their own leisure.

Your Groupon grants you aerial access to a Cessna 172 ($49–$50 per half hour, depending on location). As you hop into the cockpit, study the navigational dials and instruments. Firmly grip the yoke. Then see how many witty quips you can squeeze in over the intercom before it's time to fly. Each lesson is copiloted by one of Givens' expert instructors ($20 per half hour). Having logged countless flight hours, your copilot will keep your confidence and nose up as you take in the basics. Though it may be difficult to resist showing off for friends, save the barrel rolling for professional stunt pilots and Donkey Kong.

Tell us about your business. Christian Way Farm was established to provide a family friendly place to enjoy the experience of a farm and a visit to the country. From picnics to a relaxing afternoon on the front porch of the barn, feeding animals, playing in a corn truck, or now playing through a farm-themed miniature golf course, the farm is intended to be a place to enjoy the outdoors, participate in farm activities and feel the goodness of God?in all that He has created for us to enjoy. What makes your business stand out? The farm is gorgeous and has been maintained to keep the natural look. The store is in a barn. The tractors are older. Visitors can touch the animals. They can use the antique equipment. The setting is authentic farm but maintained to accommodate the public. What inspired you to start this business? In 1999, Milt was managing a large orchard and we decided he should quit his job there to move our family to Hopkinsville and build a house on the exact location of his grandfather's home on the family farm. Our goal was to begin with a pumpkin patch, but at the time that's all we knew. In the years since our first crop of pumpkins, we have built our business with the idea that planting seeds is important. We knew that we were going to invite people to the farm and without "preaching" to share the love of Christ with everyone who comes here. We wanted an agri-tourism experience that made a safe fun place for families to come, but we wanted that atmosphere to be one that means our customers walk away knowing they have been cared for in the best possible way. Planting a seed?that will bring a harvest of good experiences. What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer? On a regular basis we hear, "Can we just move here? Can we just live with you all here?" And on a temporary basis, some move in with us for a while. We often hear from soldiers who said, "I can just really decompress here," and from families where a spouse is about to deploy, "We just wanted to enjoy a good family day together before he leaves." What?s your favorite part about your job? All of it. Living on the farm, raising [our] family while doing this, and meeting thousands of people. Business Basics Established: 2000 Handicap Accessible: Yes Staff Size: 2?10 people Parking: Parking lot Reservations/Appointments: Not necessary Most popular offering: Miniature golf, feeding farm animals, and pumpkin patch Pro Tip: We are located in the country so allow time to travel to here and allow plenty of time to visit.

It's fitting that Perryville Pumpkin Farm caters to families since the farm itself has been a part of the Koenig family's history since 1892. And though the farm has changed a lot since the days when its fields were used to raise cows, chickens, and hogs, it's still managed to remain a tried-and-true family operation since transitioning to a pumpkin farm in 2001. Take Jarod Koenig, for instance, who designed and built the farm's mini golf course himself, and who also designs the one-acre corn maze every year. Meanwhile, Ryan Koenig and his mother Dianna hand-pick every pumpkin sold at the farm stand, leaving the rest for adventurous guests who prefer to peruse the vines themselves. Even family friends contribute to the fun, providing the handmade jellies and jams sold in the farm's shop. Besides welcoming guests to tour the farm or get lost in the twisting stalks of corn, Perryville Pumpkin Farm hosts a whole slew of autumn activities. Kids can climb on a straw bale fort, crawl through a straw tunnel, or practice their aim with the pumpkin sling. Animals also play a big part in the fun here, and guests can feed the goats and chickens, or even try their hand at milking a cow with a little help from local dairy farmer, Dan. Of course, the main event is the wagon ride out to the massive pumpkin patch where guests can pick a perfect specimen to take home and carve into a jack-o-lantern or a slightly smaller pumpkin.
