We didn’t do this---we came for the cars--, but this is some information I picked up while there. If you are interested in the Civil War, this might be worth your time. At the Tourist and Convention Commission (352 three Springs Rd.) you can pick up maps for a self-guided driving tour that will take you past Civil War forts, memorial, and other sites relating to the war. Something we will do next time, if we get back that way.
Two interesting places. One is the Old Richardsville Road bridge. It is a wooden deck steel bridge built in the late 1800s. Don't go there in the winter if there is ice on the roads! Almost killed myself there.
A nice night time drive is down Glen Lily Road toward town. You can see the entire town. I have not been there at night since they rebuilt it, hopefully its still a good scene.
If you want a beautiful, clear, calm boating experience, take your boat up to Carrolton, Kentucky and put in at the docks there on the Ohio River. Drive down river a short distance and turn into the Kentucky River (left turn). Open up and enjoy the beautiful ride. My father and I spent the night on the river tied up to a tree. It was a great trip, except that we lost one of our two engines. On most boats that wouldn't be too much of a problem, but we have a jet boat, so it was. No real big deal. Here you will also get to pass through some of the oldest locks in Kentucky. Blow your airhorn and they'll come down to let you through. A great experience.
