The rich soil of Walnut Grove Farm—tilled throughout more than 150 years and four generations—sprouts with flowers, shrubs, and trees sold in an eponymous onsite nursery. Arched greenhouses plant their pillars in the grounds' northwest corner, where they shelter shrubs such as boxwoods and holly, annuals such as petunias, mums, and pansies, and more than 80 fragrant perennials. Mulches chipped from hardwoods and cypress join peat moss and compost to blanket exposed roots, and a Gardener's General Store stocks country essentials ranging from grass seed to locally laid eggs. Walnut Grove's green-thumbed experts also emerge beyond the nursery walls to beautify lawns with landscape designs and routine maintenance such as edging, weed control, and flamingo herding.
The newest attraction at Louisville Mega Cavern, Mega Quest, just opened in Fall 2013 and claims to be the only underground ropes challenge course in the world. The Mega Cavern, originally a limestone mine, was mined for 42 years, beginning in the 1930s, and is now the largest building in the state of Kentucky. The cavernous facility utilizes its 90-foot-high thoroughfares to unite guests with an exhilaration previously known only to highly caffeinated miners—ziplining. Customers can purchase separate tickets for a variety of attractions, including Mega Zips ziplining, open daily throughout the year, the Lights Under Louisville show running during the Christmas season. The Mega Tram, which runs beginning in mid-January through early October. During Mega Zips tours of up to two hours, amateur spelunkers will stream across the subterrain’s six underground ziplines and dual racing lines under the sage supervision of the cavern's ACCT-certified experts. Along the way, guides will entertain guests with tales of the cavern’s rich history and uncanny impressions of stalagmites.

Once known simply as CC Spa, CC Medi Spa added a whole new suite of services to its menu when it added a word to its name. To supplement the facials, manicures, and pedicures the spa always offered, its aestheticians are now joined by chiropractors and massage therapists who provide health-boosting bodywork. The dermaplaning that they offer removes all facial hair and may help minimizes fine lines, wrinkles and pre-cancerous skin cells.
The team partitions their 4,000-square-foot space into private rooms, each dedicated to a specific kind of service and ancient Sumerian deity. While one person relaxes in the massage room or sits in the pedicure room's leather throne, others can wait their turn on the lobby's plush taupe couches, bathed in tinted light from the tall windows obscured by pale violet curtains.
A monthly fixture on WBKI’s Louisville LIVE, D & W Silks outfits under-landscaped homes with silk floral arrangements, silk trees, and aesthetically ascendant interior accessories. Silk bloom bouquets ($9.99–$149) bear an uncanny resemblance to their water-guzzling counterparts but don’t require plant food or regular conversation. Silk trees ($49–$499) are equally self-sufficient, offering to enliven staid, leafless sitting areas for nothing in return except an introduction to the sultry lava lamp. Throughout D & W’s 20,000-square-foot showroom, feng shui neophytes can pick up accessories ($9.99–$199) such as mirrors, pictures, lamps, clocks, and candles, all of which are perfectly smashable items for bored, defeated poltergeists. A friendly, knowledgeable staff is on hand to answer silk-centered questions and help pair patrons with appropriate arrangements.
