Elizabethtown Things to Do

  • Car Museum

    The best thing about this museum....it's free. It does have some interesting array of antique vehicles and a car enthusiast would likely take several hours here drooling over their Model A or old Thunderbird. It was interesting as a side trip on the way back to our hotel.

  • Brown Pusey House

    Not necessarily a remarkable historic home but the people working there were not only very accomodating they took a remarkable amount of time answering questions from my second grader which was very unusual to find people so patient with younger children. This home has different events housed in it and isn't really setup for tours so I wouldn't put...

  • Historic Park

    This was a nice park with a lake, swingset, sand volleyball courts and some history. The sign says it all but included is a small grave site of the family that lived in this log cabin and a small school house that was the sole school in the area. A nice break from all the museums.

  • Patton Museum

    If you are a history buff you are going to love this place. If it wasn't for having small children I could have spent the entire day going through this museum. The shear number of tanks and aircraft from world war 2 outside was amazing and inside most of it did focus on world war 2 however there was a an exhibit about the wars that followed...

  • Coca Cola Memorabilia Museum

    This was an interesting place. The next best thing to the actual Coca Cola Museum in Atlanta. The exhibits were interesting and kept the kids occupied looking at all the shiny bottles and things from years past. If you are in the area it is worth the extra few hours to stop in and catch up on the history of coca cola.

  • Lincoln Birthplace

    I actually went here twice because I really liked the forest paths and I was looking for a nice place to walk for the afternoons.The monument is intriguing: a tiny log cabin inside a large granite hall. There's a video about Licoln's early years and a neet little gift shop.

  • Sarah Bush Johnston Lincoln Memorial

    Although outside appearances this is a lame place to go I enjoyed it because there was a women working on the gardens who was thoroughly facinated by the topic and I ended up talking with her for an hour all about Lincoln and his relation to Kentucky. So if you go, just say hi to the gardner and you'll learn more than you'd expect :)PS: the photo...

  • Swope's Car Museum

    If you love antique cars this is the place to go! There is an entire warehouse packed full of beautifully restored cars from all eras.All the cars were refinished by the Swope family and put on display for all to see free of charge.

  • Coke Museum

    I visited the new Coke Museum located in the tourist center. Not only do you get to see neat coke memorabilia you'll learn about Coca-Cola's history (it was once sold as a medicine!) When you are done visiting the museum stop by the toursit center and pick up pamphlets on the next place to go!

  • Good BBQ

    This is a good place, with good service and pretty good BBQ. It's not the best in the world, but for E-town, it's worth a visit. The atmosphere is pretty neat, trying to make it feel like you're outside. Pulled pork

  • The only sushi in town

    This is the only place with sushi (that's any good) in town. They have a hibachi as well as a sushi bar, serve the right beers and have a good atmosphere. The hibachi chefs may not be Japanese... or even legal, but they put on a good show, if flipping shrimp into a hat makes your day. Weee. But it's one of the few non-chain places in town, and a...
