Tie Breaker Family Aquatic Center

MrsBee talks about her experience at the Tie Breaker Family Aquatic Center, “My family and I go here every year. It’s cheap. There are lockers for your things. There are covered areas to sit. There is a great play station area for all kids. But, I especially like how great it can be for toddlers. The water is a gradual depth, so there’s a beach-like cemented area that is shallow for the little ones. There’s also multiple life guards. There is a canteen where you can buy basic things.” She finishes by saying, “Overall, my kids love it and we’ll keep going!

Christian Way Farm & Mini Golf

Carolina from Clarksonville, has to say this about her visit to the Christian Way Farm & Mini Golf, “I happened to be invited to an event in Hopkinsville, prior to that we dropped by Christian Way Farms for a visit. I had heard about it for years from friends, but had never been. The old barn you walk into to pay also has some charming items for sale kids small toys, home decor, snacks. It was really charming both inside and out. They had it decorated really nicely.

Carolina goes on, “The kids (10,6) enjoyed the lawnmower train ride pulled by a Tractor, fun playgrounds with hay, slides, and tractor playground. They also enjoyed feeding the animals, the ride to the pumpkin patch, and area to ride tricycles.

She finishes by saying, “This was a nice farm. Very friendly family running it. It made for a fun day and sweet memories with my children. I would highly recommend it! They had food for sale on the Saturday we visited. They also have a Mini Golf Course, but we had to go on to Hopkinsville.

TMJrobin from Hopkinsville, Kentucky, gives his feedback about his experience at the Hopkinsville Brewing Company, “I have yet to have one of their beers I did not like. Their growlers and prowlers are a nice item so you can bring some home. The Food Truck rotation ensures that you can always purchase something different to eat. Free wi-fi and a good crowd most days makes it a good place to relax. The length of your stay will depend on how many pints you drink. Their taster flight is a good option for new folks.

Angela provides her feedback about the Hopkinsville Art Gallery, “In addition to beautiful oil, watercolors, etc. there was beautiful local photography. I loved the wooden cutting boards that were too pretty to cut on. Lots of inexpensive, nice jewelry by Tanya Ezell, gorgeous pottery by Trisha Ferrell. Linda Pierce and Jeannie White were some of my favorite artists..postcards (hard to find these days). Photography of local historic buildings, the lakes and the state parks.” Angela goes on to say, “The Bozards wooden pieces were so cute and very affordable. There were glass lamps and etched glass. Just lots of variety. There’s a great place to eat next door, an old hardware store with EVERYTHING! and Griffins with upscale and unusual gifts and art. I could spend the whole day on that street.
