Union, Kentucky is a terrific place to live and lay. So, what is there to do in and around Union? Here are a few ideas for Union, Kentucky recreation.
Rabbit Hash Historic District
Visit Kentucky’s past with a day at Rabbit Hash. This tiny town is located on the Ohio River. It’s directly across the river from Rising Sun, Indiana. Rabbit Hash is on the National Register of Historic Places. Visit the General Store – in operation since 1835! Pay tribute to veterans from WWII and early settlers at the respective monuments. Buildings include the Ironworks that once produced wood burning stoves; blacksmith shop; doctor’s office; barn; and the Rabbit Hash Museum. You can also stay at the Old Hashienda, a newly renovated inn. Sit on the porch and watch as the riverboats pass and catch the sunset.
Weekends are the best time to visit Rabbit Hash. The Scalded Hog barbecue restaurant, Verona Vineyards Wine Tasting Room, and coffee shop are open. You’ll also find Amber’s Antiques and Abrupt Designs. Special weekend events include Annual Old Timers Day, a music festival and art show.
Big Bone Lick State Park
Check out the Pleistocene mammals who were frequent visitors to the springs and salty soil. Mammoths, mastodons, ancient sloths, bison and horses bogged down in the marshy land and fossilized. Natives and settlers knew the area well. Meriwether Lewis visited the lick in 1803 and sent back specimens to Thomas Jefferson. After Lewis returned from his western journey, he was sent to the lick for the United States’ first organized vertebra paleontology expedition.
The campground offers utility hookups, showers, rest rooms, laundry facilities, grills, swimming pool and playground areas. There are several hiking trails and a bison herd.
Boone County Arboretum
This is the first arboretum located within a recreational park. You’ll find 121 acres of land with twelve athletic fields, and a multi-use/hiking trail. Plantings include rare and unusual regional plants. Special events include Wednesday Walks, Dogwood Dash 5K Run/Walk, Home Run For Trees softball tournament, field trips, and personal tours.
