Tuesday, October 9 - This afternoon Lunch is included at the Overlook Restaurant in Leavenworth IN. Positioned uniquely on a bluff, the Overlook offers a 20 mile panoramic vista of the Ohio River. As you enjoy your meal, you might see barges churning up and down the river. We continue on to Louisville, KY, to visit the Kentucky Peerless Distilling Co., where you can experience honest Kentucky spirits: grain to bottle. After ceasing operations during Prohibition, the Peerless label laid dormant—until now. Beginning in 2015, production under the auspices of Kentucky Peerless Distilling has risen once again.  Their first moonshine product is some of the smoothest ‘shine ever and Bourbon is in the process of aging. Guests will receive a tour by the owners, who will take them through the entire process of bourbon making, all the way through bottling. Next, we will check into your hotel, the Drury Inn, Louisville East. Enjoy the nightly "Kickback". All Drury hotels will have free hot food & cold beverages from 5.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m. Every night there’s Hot Dogs, Baked Potatoes, Nacho Cheese, Chips & Salsa and Salad Bar, plus beer, wine and mixed drinks - just the beginning. Plus on Tuesdays, there’s Broccoli & Cheese Soup, Chili, Chicken Tenders and Macaroni & Cheese. If you're still hungry, there's an adjacent Bob Evans, Waffle House and Olive Garden. (L / “Kickback”)

Wednesday, October 10 - This morning we’ll depart for Georgetown, KY for the Toyota Plant Tour, and discover Kentucky horsepower of the four wheel variety. About 500,000 cars, and over 500,000 engines are produced annually at this Bluegrass facility. This is a TRAM tour and does not require walking. Next, we will enjoy lunch at Darlin’ Jeans in the heart of Midway where the train runs right through the middle of town!!  The atmosphere is beautiful and rustic and the equine art everywhere really makes it feel like home. Following lunch guests will have some time to enjoy the variety of shops that line both sides of the railroad track! Next, we will depart for Frankfort, KY and visit Rebecca Ruth Candy. Operating since 1919, Rebecca Ruth Candy Tours has been recommended by Food TV and The Food Network and in the pages of Southern Living, Town & Country, KY AAA Tour Guide, New York Times, and Chicago Tribune, and has been sold on QVC Home Shopping Network. This unique confectionery operation is known worldwide as "The Inventor of Bourbon Candy!," and is located in historic downtown Frankfort - just a stone's throw from the Kentucky state capitol building. Our group will be split with half visiting Rebecca Ruth and half taking a Driving Tour of Frankfort, then switching. Then we will have an early dinner at the Claudia Sanders Dinner House. Enjoy an air of Southern Hospitality and cooking combined with old fashioned, family style service that still remains at the site of the original Kentucky Fried Chicken headquarters, started by Miss Claudia‘s husband, the Colonel.   (B/L/D)

Thursday, October 11 - This morning we will tour an American Saddlebred Horse Farm. Learn all about show horses (not race horses) Walk through a horse barn, talk with a trainer and step into the arena during a training session. The Saddle Horse has been a part of the area’s history since the 1760’s when Daniel Boone and his brother Squire traveled to Kentucky on “American Horses,” the forerunners of the modern Saddlebred. Next, we will enjoy Lunch at Science Hill.  Its history as an outstanding preparatory school ran from 1825 until 1939.  During that time, girls came from all over the nation to learn and enjoy its quiet dignity. Today Science Hill is best known for its dining room - a restaurant in the finest Kentucky tradition. It offers you the warmth of the hearth and the best of the kitchen with the hope you will return often. Then a little time for shopping in the adjacent shops within the former school. Make sure you stop at Wakefield-Scearce Galleries, founded in 1947, and the home of the Mint Julep Cup. Then we return home with lots of memories to share.  (B/L)
