The 18-hole mini-golf course at Adventure Falls weaves through panoramic fields, around lily-pad-filled ponds, and past a 40-foot waterfall with an overlooking deck, setting a scenic stage for challenging tournaments. The first 10 holes of the 18 are ADA-accessible, and many boast tee-off challenges such as water obstacles and the heckling ghost of Sam Snead. With all-day passes for two, mini-golf enthusiasts can play an unlimited number of games, honing their swings, settling long-standing sibling rivalries, or letting dad win with a Father’s Day handicap. After golfing arms grow weary, players can explore the lush Lake Reba and see the park’s walking trails, fishing lake, and playground while reliving the glory of a game-winning hole-in-one or an effective heckling face.

Stefanie Ashley had contributed to texts and classes about accounting, compensation, governance, leadership, and retail management. But when she decided to start her own business and put all that work into practice, she chose art—an area outside of her expertise. That’s where her alliance with local and longtime artist Donna Godbey came in. Together, the two continue to build up Artfully Yours Studio and offer art classes that encourage experimentation without requiring any previous experience from students. The studio hosts painting classes five to six times per week, with Donna or another instructor guiding students through the emulation of a piece of art selected for or created for that evening. Attendees follow along and learn the basics of composing an image on a blank canvas while refraining from scribbling on the walls with crayons.

At Galaxy Bowling & Entertainment, bowlers can hurl balls toward pin clusters seven days a week. Nifty Fifties Tuesdays fill idle fingers with $0.50 domestic beers, and on Thursday through Saturday, cosmic bowling creates a nebular ambiance with black lights, balls that glow, and pins that smell like a supernova remnant. After a league game, party, or one-on-one with a friend, players can agree to a cease-fire inside Champions Sports Bar & Grill, hoisting edible trophies of burgers, sandwiches, and pizza to their mouths. Competitors can also break from the lanes at the Great Odyssey Arcade, or stock up on gear at the Ray Kidd Pro Shop.

Though Old Silo Restaurant smokes all of its meat in house, it might be more apt to say that they do it on the green. The dining room—part of the golf course's 6,000-square foot clubhouse—connects to a back deck, where diners can take in the bluegrass landscape along with their meals.

This scenic perch embraces its Kentucky roots with a menu of country entrees. Barbecue is a mainstay, and the chefs' special sauce decorates ribs, chicken, and pulled pork. Dinner dishes include fresh-cut steaks and fried catfish, as well as the "Love me Tender" platter: homemade breaded chicken tenders served Buffalo-style or with secret Old Silo sauce, made inside the Old Silo's adjacent Old Alchemy Chamber. As the kitchen preps these plates from scratch, players conquer the 18-hole course outside, exploring lush fairways to a burbling soundtrack from Somerset Creek.

Nature lovers feed their scaly critter fascinations with the Kentucky Reptile Zoo's collection of more than 80 types of snakes, turtles, and other cold-blooded creatures. Various vipers, cobras, rattlesnakes, and an 18-foot reticulated python entrance snake-charmed visitors. Kids get a kick out of shell dwellers in the Turtle Tracks area, a habitat for both tortoises and aquatic turtles.

The third annual Beer Cheese Festival celebrates Kentucky’s iconic beer-bathed cheese spread with a cornucopia of events hosted in its place of origin: Clark County. Fromage festivities center around commercial and amateur beer cheese competitions, which invite cheese connoisseurs to sample and vote for locally made spreads of all stripes, which will also be scored by a panel of judges that includes food writer Sharon Thompson and brew maestro Mike Palmer. Lactose lovers can expand their palates through approximately 40 vendors who tease tongues with cheese-free delights, such as candy, Sno Cones, and more. Craft vendors catch eyes with homemade soaps, woodcarvings, candles, and air handcrafted with the hides of free-range oxygen. Browsers can also have their ears enlivened by the twangy rhythms of local musicians.
