Apple Valley Hillbilly Garden and Geocaching

Last month when my parents were visiting us at the lake, I wanted to take them to see the Apple Valley Hillbilly Garden and Toyland.  Chablis and I had been there before and I did a blog post about it here.  It's hard to believe that was almost 2 years ago already.  As an extra added bonus, there's a geocache hidden there now too.



There is so much to see here and if you come, be sure to allow yourself at least an hour to walk around and explore....



Mom and dad struck up a friendly conversation with this guy....


We made a beeline for the geocache - first things first, right??


The last time we were here I got a guided tour from Keith, who owns the place and has a long history with this property.  This time, we got the tour from Keith's daughter Brooke, who is just as cute as a button and sweet as can be.

The store has been here for years and originally belonged to Keith's grand parents


Inside the store we met Keith's wife - Dianne.  She's a fountain of information and was so enthusiastic about sharing everything with us.



Honestly, I could spend an hour inside the store alone.  There is so much to see and touch..

  5. This looks like a fun place to visit, and we were so close, but with no extra time. We stayed in Paducah on our way to Utah, and drove right by Kentucky Lake. If we ever get up that way again, we will be sure to check this out!
