Deep space and Fort Donelson
Fort Donelson National Battlefield gives a fascinating insight into American Civil War History. The capture of Fort Donelson by Union forces led to the capture of Nashville, giving the Union control over much of Tennessee. This struck a major blow to the Confederacy in the early days of the war. Come and see the very place where these historic battles were fought, along with artifacts, monuments, and genealogical archives.
Stare into deep space at the Golden Pond Planetarium and Observatory, where a 40ft dome offers you unparalleled views of the night sky. Watch spectacular laser shows and educational displays, presented live by interactive experts. Tonight's Sky Live is a live presentation that offers you the chance to learn about the planets, stars, and constellations appearing on the coming evening.
Cowboys and history
Western Kentucky boasts some of the best trails for horseback riding in the United States. Cowboy Up Kentucky offers horse rides through the Land Between the Lakes and Shawnee National Forest. The stables are near to Bell Smith Springs, so you can always catch a view of this magical spot on your family day trip.
Children are enthralled by visits to the 1850s Homeplace and Working Farm Living History Museum. Come and see costumed actors recreating the homestead exactly as it would have been prior to the Civil War. Step back in time as you explore the historic structures and see endangered livestock and heirloom crops. Walk into the Tool Barn and see a farmer's woodworking shop. Step into the kitchen and enjoy the aroma of country cooking on the wood burning stove. Special events and folk artists bring extra vibrancy to this thriving history center.
Wildlife in beautiful nature
Explore the spectacular Cross Creeks National Wildlife Refuge, and spot diverse species stalking the wetlands and forest. In January and February, why not come eagle watching at Land Between the Lakes? Cruise and van tours take you to the best viewing spots in this 170.000 acre region.
Alternatively, drive through the Elk and Bison Prairie to see elk, bison, and turkeys ranging across wild flower fields. The 700 acre enclosure is a unique space where you can watch the animals in their natural habitat. Watch bison calves playing near their mothers in May. The wild flowers bloom in the fall, when the elk begin bugling, and rubbing the velvet from their antlers. It is especially easy to view the wildlife in the winter.
