Island View Restaurant at Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park
While winter is a pretty slow time when it comes to Kentucky Events, Valentine’s Day is generating a little buzz. One of the things I love the most about Valentine’s Day (besides the chocolate!) is the fact that, for me, it marks the end of the long winter months. Granted, we aren’t even close to spring, officially, yet, but Valentine’s Day gets us one step closer and, by this time, I’ll settle for that!
From Kentucky State Parks:
Celebrate Valentine’s Day at a Kentucky State Park this year with your special someone! Many parks are offering events and weekend packages in February to help celebrate Valentine’s Day.
