Weekend Getaway Idea: Red River Gorge in Kentucky

Rock ClimbingThe kids are heading back to school in just a few short weeks (and the crowd of parents goes wild). You’ve hit up the waterpark, the children’s museum, the county fair, the movies, and the outlet mall. So what’s left to do these last couple weekends? I’ve got the answer – pack up, and hit the road for a family weekend getaway!

If you live in the Bluegrass or Buckeye states, the perfect 2 day family vacay is in east-central Kentucky. Here, you’ll find a beautiful canyon system chock full of outdoor adventures awaiting you at Red River Gorge.

Red River Gorge attracts thousands of visitors to its naturally beautiful environment each year. Offering some of the best in options for rappelling, hiking, kayaking, and camping, your adventurous side will definitely get a thrill out of a trip to the Gorge.

For those that prefer a little less activity and a little more relaxation, the Red River Gorge region is also home to some fascinating museums, fantastic shopping, and fabulous fare. One of the better known restaurants in the area is Miguel’s Pizza. The health conscious will most certainly appreciate the huge variety of pizza toppings grown right outside in Miguel’s very own organic garden, and the novice to expert climber will be thankful for the adjoining rock climbing equipment shop. This is the perfect stop for a family dinner or to grab a nutritious snack and some gear en route to your next climb.
