Hart County Travel Ideas

 “Hart” of America Grandparents Getaway


If you’re looking for a real adventure with your grandchildren in America’s heartland, get “down & dirty” in Hart County Kentucky. Go “down under” at an interactive Australian-themed animal park where you can get up close and personal with kangaroos, emus and lorikeets; feed baby lambs; milk a cow; and learn to throw a boomerang and play a didgeridoo. Or go way “down under” at Kentucky Caverns, Cub Run Cave, or Hidden River Cave and the American Cave Museum. You can even get “dirty” on an off-trail adventure in Hidden River Cave where Mike Rowe filmed an episode of Dirty Jobs for the Discovery Channel. Find a souvenir and see a play “down”town in Horse Cave’s Historic Arts & Shopping District where you can trace the pathway of the cave under your feet. Or go “down” on the farm at Dennison’s Roadside Market where you can pick your own berries or pumpkins in season. You can even stay “down” on the farm at Country Girl at Heart, an environmentally-friendly working farm experience. Take a canoe ride “down” Green River and walk through history on the Historic Walking Tour in “down”town Munfordville. Come on “down”. You’ll make grand memories!

Tahoe National Forest   

Share your love of the Great Outdoors with your grandchildren. Take short hikes together through the woods. Swim in refreshing mountain lakes. Explore the historic sites of Donner Pass. Then return to the comfort of our rustic lodge for a well-earned rest before dinner – and a lively evening program. All of these activities, and more, are possible on this eleventh annual lodge-based event.

Here's a sampling of some of the planned events: Short walks through fragrant pine forests and open meadows, with optional longer hikes; refreshing swims in hidden mountain lakes; exploring the original wagon and train routes over Donner Pass. On other days, we'll take a nature walk in a glaciated area, have a beach picnic at Donner Lake, take a tram ride and go ice skating at Squaw Valley's High Camp, and visit the Donner Memorial Museum. Admission to the Squaw Valley tram, ice skating rink and swimming lagoon, the Donner Memorial Museum, and the beach picnic are included in your trip fee.

Wisconsin   

The Grandkidsandme Foundation announces the 8th year of our popular Grandkidsandme Grandparent Camps. Grandkidsandme Camp is a fun, weekend adventure for grandparents and grandchildren held in the beautiful Wisconsin outdoors at Camp Icaghowan, a YMCA Camp, near Amery, Wisconsin. Our camps are specially designed for grandparents of all ages and for grandchildren between 4-12.
This is the place where memories are made-powerful memories! Our weekend camps are designed to "Bring Generations Together®". Grandparent Camp is a wonderful place to celebrate the joy of your grandchild's company.

Enjoy private time with your grandchildren in a peaceful, pristine environment-away from TV, away from headphones, telephones and video games. Our weekends are timed to not interfere with school. We begin with registration at 4:00 on Friday afternoon and conclude by 12:00 on Sunday.

Idaho   

How about white water rafting with your grandkids? On July 30th and August 7th we have a "Grand-parents/Grandkids" Lodge Stay trip. By staying in lodges we have the comforts of home but still have all the fun that a river trip offers. We have found that these trips are a great way for grandparents to spend time with their grandkids. We close this trip at 12 guest as well, so please call early.
