Across the River: By Jeanette

There are a lot of fun things to do in Louisville, but let’s not forget about the fun stuff on the OTHER side of the river! Here are a few places to go check out. I have yet to check most of these places out, but look forward to in the near future! What places have you been to that you can tell us about on our facebook page?

Schimpff’s Confectionary 
Claim to fame:.It is among the oldest, continually operated, family-owned candy-making businesses in the country and is home to one of the few candy-related museums in existence. There’s a 50s soda fountain and a candy demonstration area as well. It mentions on the website to call ahead for a FREE tour of the museum and the demonstration.

Falls of the Ohio State Park
Claim to fame: The 390-million-year-old fossil beds are among the largest, naturally exposed, Devonian fossil beds in the world. They have a interpretive center (for a small fee), a few trails, and George Rogers Clark homesite. The park’s website has some activities for kids to learn about more about the earth’s history.

Huber’s Farm
Just thought I’d mentioned it once more since it is one the OTHER side of the river….

Derby Dinner Theater
Claim to fame: Derby Dinner Playhouse is proud to be one of the oldest and largest continually operating professional dinner theatres in the country. They have shows posted through Oct. 2011. They also have children’s shows for breakfast and lunch.

Carnegie Center 
This is a history and art museum. It has a family fun day on the 2nd Saturday of the month. Check out the website for the activity for the month. It is free, but pre-registration is required.
