Pump It Up's indoor inflatable arenas launch socked striplings into the air with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Staffers supervise fun-filled visits, during which adult counterparts leap around with their kids through gargantuan bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an inflated obstacle course. Occasionally, the staffers switch off the lights, arming the roomful of players with glow sticks and bracelets as they navigate the air-cushioned obstaclescape.

The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their charges will stay safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the wall by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.

Named for a pair of islands visible from the shoreline, Twin Island Park provides spacious, shaded campsites on the waterfront of the Ohio River. Each lot maintains some comforts of home, such as water, electricity, and public restrooms, and surrounds guests with the inimitable pleasures of the outdoors. Campers may build fires at night to ward off wild marshmallows, and free access to the launch ramp and boat docks allows for afternoons of tubing and boating or trips to the islands? sandy beaches. Beyond the campground, a variety of local restaurants offer a break from cans of beans and dutch-oven Lobster Thermidor, and points of interest range from golf courses to sites along the Underground Railroad.

Kentucky Rock and Adventure Guides' team of certified scalesmen leads climbers of all skill levels skyward during five unique outdoor climbing adventures. Each peak-bound pilgrimage throughout the Red River Gorge and Lake Vesuvius focuses on teaching students safe climbing techniques. During the beginners? course, greenhorns learn basic fundamentals, such as knot tying, using equipment before applying new skills to an actual climb. The instructor squad also shares their passion for scaling via traditional and sport climbing sessions that cater to seasoned mountaineers. A preclimb email briefs students on what items to bring, and KRAG outfits each guest with the necessary trimmings for safe ascension, including a helmet, rock-climbing shoes, and ropes to lasso low-flying weather balloons.

Countless trees fly by under your feet as you soar hundreds of feet above the ground. Suddenly, the forest floor below opens up into a gorge. At Red River Gorge Zipline, riders witness this incredible sight on regular canopy tours set amid the picturesque wilderness of Daniel Boone National Forest. The system's ziplines span more than 4,000 feet above the forest canopy, with the longest reaching about 1,900 feet in length. At the end of the tour, dual racing ziplines send riders charging down from more than 200 feet above the ground, and reaching speeds exceeding 50 mph. All of Red River Gorge Zipline's guests are strapped into harnesses for the duration of their tours, while helmet cams document their adventure.

In 1783, Captain John Holder established Holder's Tavern along the region's main thoroughfare: the Kentucky River. Now part of Hall's on the River, the site persists some 200-plus years later as a place to gather around food and drinks. Today, visitors dig into classic Southern dishes, ranging from steaks and smoked pork chops to frog legs and a seafood platter stacked with shrimp, oysters, scallops, clams, and fried ocean catfish.

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.
