This Roadside Attraction In Kentucky Is The Most Unique Thing You’ve Ever Seen
The classic roadside attraction is an American tradition. You may envision Clark Griswold loading up the “family roadster” and stopping by one of these so-called tourist traps. Kentucky is filled with unique stops that are perfect for stretching your legs and meeting the locals. In Calvert City, you’ll find just the place and it’s filled with plenty of interesting things to see. Hillbilly Garden and Toyland is the kitschy attraction you didn’t know you needed to visit.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
