Today we will depart on our 6-day Kentucky adventure. Tonight's lodging will be at the Drury Inn in Grove City, OH where you can partake in the hotel's included Kickback Dinner or venture out to one of the local restaurants within walking distance.
This morning we continue our journey to Louisville, KY. En route we will stop in Lebanon, Ohio where we will experience a historic train ride on the Lebanon Mason Monroe Railroad. You will travel through the countryside of Warren County in Southwestern Ohio. Lunch will be included at the iconic and historic Golden Lamb Inn. Our lodging for the next three nights will be located at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky. Tonight we will attend The Phantom's Masquerade, a costume party and gala dinner at Louisville's oldest theatre, the Municipal Auditorium. Masks and disguises are encouraged (but not required). Strolling musicians, Phantom Violinists and Gypsy Dancers provide dinner entertainment. Later we will watch the original 1925 silent movie "Phantom of the Opera" starring Lon Chaney, with the theatre's Master Organist playing the original score.
Following breakfast this morning we will be met by a local guide who will point out all the highlights of Louisville. Included in our touring is a visit to the American Printing House for the Blind. The American Printing House for the Blind promotes independence of people who are blind and visually impaired by providing specialized materials, products, and services needed for education and life. After free time for lunch on your own, we will take a guided tour through the factory where Louisville Slugger bats are crafted with the same pride that started in 1884. You'll learn every step in the process and receive a miniature Louisville Slugger bat! This evening we gather in the Ballroom for a rock n' roll, trick-or-treat dinner show. The menu is filled with ghoulish delights and live music from the costumed "Crypt-Kicker Five" who will have a couple of Halloween numbers ready for you. We will take a break from the entertainment as we stroll though the Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular at Louisville's Iroquois Park. There are 5,000 carved and illuminated pumpkins along a 1,500 foot promenade through the park. It's both an artistic and organic Halloween Gallery like you've never seen before!B, D
This morning, after breakfast, we will depart for nearby Corydon, Indiana for a visit to Indiana Caverns. Here, 110 feet underground you can enjoy a boat ride on the underground river and learn about the history of the Caverns. We will then return to Louisville to ride the Mega Cavern Tram that twists and turns through part of 17 miles of underground passageways beneath the city of Louisville. Tonight's special event is "The Headless Horseman's Holiday Party". You will be treated to a haunted tour of Churchill Downs, where perhaps the Horseman may be riding around. It's time to meet the spirits on the dark side of the track, hear the legends and lore of both the supernatural and the Spooktacular. We will visit Kentucky Derby Museum's Cemetery and climb to the sixth floor of Churchill Downs (elevators are available) where between the twin spires of the world's most famous Racetrack, you learn about her ghosts. Dinner is included and "visitors" will be scattered among the exhibits. It's a spellbinding evening of haunting humor, laughs and lunacy, music and madness. It's the Horseman's annual gathering….a ghoulish, galloping, goodtime event!B, D
After a leisurely breakfast, we will check-out and depart for Grove City, Ohio. We will stop in Cincinnati to visit the American Sign Museum, which is dedicated to the art and history of commercial signs and sign making.
