This Charming Ice Cream Shop Attached To A Kentucky General Store Is A Must-Visit
Since Kentuckians enjoy a scenic country drive, it only makes sense that we also love an inviting roadside attraction with plenty of character and charm. Our state has many of these welcoming stops, and one of them can be found in the small town of Aurora near Kentucky Lake. The Hitching Post & Old Country Store has been a beloved destination for a while now, but this year they’ve stepped up their appeal by adding a charming ice cream shop. This general store was already a must-visit in the area, and now with the addition of the ice cream shop, it’s sure to become a summer tradition.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
