The Hitching Post Ice Cream Shop

I've done quite a few posts about "The Hitching Post" which is one of my favorite places at Kentucky Lake.  You can go back and read a few of them here and here.  Well there are a few new additions over there so I thought I'd share them with you.

A couple of weeks ago local chainsaw carver Justin Driver transformed 2 tree stumps into a charming welcome sign, complete with woodland animals and red birds.  How cute is that??   What a fun photo op!  I wish I could have been there to see him in action....

But wait, there's more - the addition of their ice cream shop!  Holy cow - talk about awesome!  Su's husband Tom is creating the homemade ice cream on site...

Currently they are featuring about 16 different flavors and they are rotating them as they come up with new flavors.

Su says "we have Butter Pecan, Coconut Cashew, Vanilla, Chocolate, Pistachio, Toasted Coconut, Strawberry, Peanut Butter, Maple Walnut, Snickers and Mint Chocolate Chip. We made them all here in our certified kitchen!! We also will make delicious Sundaes and Floats!"

The Hitching post is located in beautiful downtown Aurora, KY at 16474 US Highway 68 E.  The ice cream shop hours are:  Tuesday - Saturday 11:00 -6:00, Sunday 11:00 - 4:00.

But that's not all...  Su has a knack for unique merchandising, so be sure to visit both the stores also on site.  She stocks antiques, clothing, knick knacks, foods, snacks, soaps, coffee and candy....

Oh and one more thing - Be sure to stop by on Thursday evenings from 4:00 - 7:00 pm for their soda tastings.  They have over one hundred different flavors and brands of soda pop.  Yum!!
