  • When’s the last time you took a little adventure or learned something new together? Here are a few ideas:
    • Go fishing! Some of our guides welcome new fishermen and will even filet the fish for you to grill on your own for dinner. Find a guide!
    • Explore Kentucky Lake or Land Between the Lakes. Taking a hike is a great way to disconnect from your phones and reconnect with one another. (You might even get to sneak a few kisses on the trail!) Don’t forget to pack plenty of water! Find the right hike to add to your trip!
      • Hike the Kentucky Lake Dam Trail, 2.8 miles out and back
      • Bird watch, fish or bike the Clarks River National Wildlife Refuge Loop Trail.
