Crank and Increase Ice Cream Lexington, Kentucky

Crank and Increase Ice Cream is in the midst of ‘Distillery Row’ in Lexington Kentucky. It is a part of city that seems to have been factories that closed down and repurposed as distilleries, eating places and an ice cream store. The mural on Crank and Increase leaves little query as to what this place holds.

Crank and Increase Ice Cream – I really like this mural

The store has loads of seating and is creatively adorned with: a poster tells what Crank and Increase is all about – a ‘”Share a Scoop” board provides of us an opportunity to share knowledge about life – a board itemizing ice cream flavors – and loads of artwork work.

All their use cream is made in small batches close to by with loads of attention-grabbing flavors. We selected a flight of 4 flavors: Bourbon and Honey, Gooey Butter Cake (our server’s favourite), Banana + Chocolate and Kentucky Blackberry & Buttermilk. The flavors had been fairly good, however two of the 4 had been a bit too smooth after we acquired them – form of blobs as an alternative of scoops. We loved our expertise right here.

Flight of flavors – yummy

Within the space – This was my first time in Kentucky in a few years, and I actually loved the folks we met and the locations we visited. Don’s foremost curiosity in Kentucky was to see the Ark Encounter and mine was to see a bourbon distillery. We acquired to each.

Ark Encounter, Williamstown, Kentucky – Again in Biblical instances, instructed by God, Noah constructed an ark to accommodate two or extra of every kind of animal on the earth. This exhibit makes an attempt to recreate the ark utilizing know-how that was most likely obtainable on the time. No expense was spared in making this web site. The ark was as close to to its Biblical dimension as potential and due to this fact large. The cages and shows had been effectively finished and attention-grabbing.

Cages for small animals

I’m fascinated with the historical past of know-how, and the Ark Encounter made all makes an attempt to maintain true with know-how obtainable on the time, and it was attention-grabbing to see how the cages could possibly be cleaned, repairs made and animals fed all with minimal effort. However the displays had been wrought with inconsistencies. For example, the Ark Encounter makers had been robust disbelievers in evolution, however saved just one kind of every class of animal with imprecise explanations of how these expanded to the variety of species that ultimately developes.

The Chalicothere Variety- grew to become horses and rhinoceros and different animal lessons

The Ark Expertise additionally had a zoo, a carousel, digital experiences (which we didn’t do) and plenty of historic displays. All of it created a enjoyable and informative day.

Elkhorn Distillery, Lexington, Kentucky – what would a visit to Kentucky be with no go to to a bourbon distillery? We selected Elkhorn which gave us an awesome tour with loads of info of their bourbon making course of, and samples of their bourbon. We even determined to remain for an awesome lunch. Glad we selected this place!

Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, Kentucky – Ever since our daughters had been small, we’ve been round horses – serving to brush and tack, watching their classes and in a while strolling horses to chill them down. I by no means realized a lot about totally different breeds and and all that was concerned in displaying horses. Immediately we loved so much details about horses in a relaxed and delightful park,

There was a lot to see that I can’t do it justice right here, so I’ll embrace a number of of my favourite issues:

A horse drawn carriage trip across the park to indicate us what was there.

A statue of Workers Sargent Reckless, a fast-learner horse that served the US Marine Corps in quite a lot of methods, together with delivering provides to the place they had been wanted with no handler concerned – She ultimately earned the rank of Workers Sargent and the Marines wanted to salute her,.

The Parade of Breeds which included each extra and fewer widespread breeds together with the Rocky Mountain Horse with a silver mane.

Mounted police horses with photos of them with their officer.

Historical past of horses in lots of capacities.

I discovered this show attention-grabbing as a result of this city is called after the city in Eire my kin dwell in
