4 Must See Roadside Attractions in Kentucky!!                                                                                                                                                                           hyhy

Louisville Slugger Walk of Fame Louisville, KY: This is located on Main Street right along the side of the Slugger Factory. It really is a sight to see. The Walk is over a mile long and has over 60 bronze baseball bats on display. They are modeled after the actual bats used by some of the biggest names in baseball such as Babe Ruth.

 

         

World’s Largest Baseball Bat, Louisville, KY: Also located on Main Street right next to the Louisville Slugger Factory/Museum. The bat has been standing since 1995. This bat is a 120 feet tall (towering over 5 stories), 68,000-pound replica of the bat Babe Ruth used in 1920’s.  It really is an amazing sight to see just how huge it is. My kids were in awe.


Stonehedge Replica, Munford, KY (201 Lynn Ave): The original Stonehenge was built about 4,000 to 5,000 years ago. The original Stonehedge is large and highly complex. The biggest stones of the Stonehenge stones are called sarsens. They measure up to 30 feet tall and weigh about 25 tons.Cool right!!! Well, some of us may not get a chance to go to England to see the original but if you find yourself in Kentucky be sure to stop by Munford and take a look at the Stonehedge Replica!!! It maybe smaller and newer than the original but it’s just as cool. Just a tip: The replica is located on private property but they are welcoming of daytime visitors. It’s a must-see if you find yourself in Munford.

      

World’s Largest Crucifix Bardstown, KY (870 Saint Thomas Lane): This crucifix is really a sight to see it was built is 1986 and is 60 feet high!!!! It just barely beat the competition (a 55-foot tall crucifix in Indian River, Michigan). The World’s Largest Crucifix is welded together out of stainless steel rods. The garments are made of wire and cloth. Jesus’ hair is made out of copper. It really is an impressive sight. This crucifix is located in St. Thomas Cemetery. If you find yourself in the area you should stop by St. Thomas church it is a cute, little church we loved.  They have the 10 commandments written on stones out front. It really was a nice little church.

  2. That is so cool. I would love to stop and see the Stonehenge replica. I didn’t even know that was a thing.

  3. Wow! This is super cool! Seems like an awesome place to visit

  4. The Stonehedge Replica looks really neat to visit! I didn’t even realize that the original one was built 5000 years ago!

  5. My kiddos and I travel only by car. We love stopping at roadside attractions. Kentucky is nearby, so I will have to keep these places in mind for future road trips!

  6. Awesome post. I’m kid-less so when I think Kentucky I think Derby & mint juleps. This was a refreshing way to think about the place

  7. That sure is a big baseball bat. My mom would love to see this.

  8. I have an old Louisville slugger that I cherish from a dear friend of mine 🙂 I haven’t made it to a game yet though. Now I know more about that area in Kentucky 😉

  9. I have to stop by there when visiting the in-laws! I love little stops like these and that Stonehenge replica would actually be really nice to see. I live just a stone throw away from the real thing here in England but that site is so guarded that you don’t really get to see much despite paying a ridiculous fee to enter.

  10. My husband says if he gets a job requiring traveling again, he wants me to plan road-side diversions like this. Kentucky would be a state we’d be travelling through frequently. I’d have to get a photo of that baseball bat for my dad.

  11. Those are such cool activities. Usually I’m all about juleps and hats when I’m the are, but loving the idea of the walk of fame. Great activity list.

  20. Roadside attractions are always the best! Those are the memories you always have!
