For National Travel & Tourism Week this year, we are bringing the fun of Bullitt County to you. When you begin to travel again, we welcome you and your family back to visit the Bernheim Arboretum Giants, experience the thrill of the world’s longest go-kart track at Kart Kountry, or a round of golf at Heritage Hill Golf Club. This course was recently rated the best in Kentucky.
One of Bullitt County’s oldest festivals, ColorFest at Bernheim Arboretum in Clermont celebrates the magnificent displays of foliage color and the touch of fall in the air with a weekend of fun for the whole family.
The Kentucky Bourbon Trail is now of legal drinking age…embarking on its 21st year. It was “born” in 1999 as means of bringing in more tourism to the state and it has grown up to be an international destination. Some aficionados suggest the best time to visit is during the spring or fall months. The bourbon is in full production, the landscape is in full bloom and the weather and crowds are easier to handle.
Bernheim Arboretum’s Giant Troll family – Mama Loumari and her kids Little Elina and Little Nis – continues to bask in their new home at Bernheim Forest, welcoming visits from neighbors in Bullitt County, Kentucky and from all over the country. They love the attention they get by not only being whimsical and fun to play around, but also from the unique statement their creator, Danish artist Thomas Dambo, makes about sustainability and respect for our environment.
The Giant Troll family has been getting to know their fellow forest friends as well, especially the many bugs and insects that live alongside them in the forest, and they are looking forward to celebrating their tiny friends at Bernheim Arboretum during BugFest on September 28.
