Christmas Wreath at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park
The weather hasn’t gotten the memo yet, but we’re getting closer and closer to Christmas! The Kentucky State Resort Parks do almost everything* perfectly and decorating for Christmas is no exception. I love visiting as many as possible around Christmas just to see the beautiful decorations.
The Parks are prepared for the winter holidays with decorations, candlelight tours, special meals, entertainment and other unique events planned.
The historic homes, Waveland, White Hall, My Old Kentucky Home and the Butler-Turpin House, all have special Christmas tours planned. Resort parks are planning special meals and events for the children. See a list of events at: http://parks.ky.gov/holiday-events/
State parks are a great place for Christmas and holiday gatherings, in addition to get-togethers throughout the year. The resort parks have restaurants, meeting areas and gift shops that offer unique gift ideas. That includes Kentucky Unbridled Spirit gift cards, which are valid at Kentucky State Parks, the Kentucky Horse Park, the Kentucky Historical Society and the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea.
All resort parks will be open for lodging seven days a week this winter and make for a wonderful weekend getaway or a holiday party.
Many state resort parks will also hold New Year’s Eve parties and dinners Dec. 31. To get more information, buy a gift card or to make a reservation, visit www.parks.ky.gov.
* The only thing they don’t do perfectly is they don’t have “gluten-free” meal options yet. Since I had to give up wheat and gluten (for health reasons), I can’t eat at the resort parks any more and I miss them a lot! I have a feeling they’ll come up with gluten free options sooner rather than later and when they do, you’ll see tons of food here on Genuine Kentucky as I write about each one.
