Murray, Kentucky: Scenic Town near Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area
Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area is named for its unusual position between two adjacent bodies of water: Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley. Although it bustles with boats and tourists in the summer, there's still plenty to do in the here in winter. The historic Tennessee farmstead known as The Homeplace hosts holiday events such as "Christmas in 1850," where visitors craft traditional 19th-century decorations, make baked goods, and sing Christmas carols. The colder months are also prime time for bald-eagle watching. On a guided tour, staff members lead groups to eagle-viewing hot spots around the park and set up wildlife scopes for a better look. It's also worth it to drive around the 3.5-mile loop that winds through the nearby Elk & Bison Prairie. Herds of wild bison and elk roam the 700-acre enclosure, just as they once did, unenclosed, in this part of Kentucky 200 years ago.

We thought it was wonderful. The only thing we would recommend would be directions on the site that avoided the small dirt roads. Driving from central Ohio we didn't know the roads very well, and we were a little frightened going down those smaller dirt roads. Other than that we had a wonderful time, Joel was very pleasant, and the view was beautiful from the condo. Thank you so much for a great experience.
