Variety of trails, we chose a easy one to start then switched to a challenging one. Stopped by the Devils kitchen, then over to the East pinnacle. Wow well worth the hike. Side note, trail was muddy in places and had several spots of scrambling and climbing on rocks. Is pet friendly but be careful as it was challenging in spots for our well trail experienced chi-westie. Also note bears and copperhead maybe encountered. Still well worth it.

Iike being in a museum. Mostly art as opposed to arts and crafts. Local artists display their work for sale and there are some beautiful, fanciful, even whimsical pieces available. Prices are relatively ambitious. It is a fun experience. There is a snack bar too.

Berea College is in many ways too good to be true. Slow, Southern pace, top rated educators, gorgeous campus, meticulous groundskeeping, and one of the best engineering and maintenance staff in the business!! Unlike the larger University to the north, where winning basketball games is the highest priority, Berea College invests in superior secondary education and has built a stellar reputation for Excellence!

Very nice brooms, woodworking, pottery and other crafts. The student-made brooms vary from small whisk brooms to full size and are all works of art!

The Boone Trace Marker may not seem like much, but it is an important mark in Kentucky History. This stone marks the path of Daniel Boone as he walked through the old Kentucky forests for the first time. Don't miss this hidden gem.

This was by far the most fun antique store we've ever been in! It had just about everything you would be looking for. We bought (chandelier pieces) for ornaments, kitchenware, and an old typewriter that my brother-in-law has been searching for everywhere. The staff was helpful and kind. We can't wait to go back!

They recently moved to Old Town. Their new gallery is filled different work from local artists. The staffs are very friendly and professional. I visited them on their grand opening day. They had some artists play Bluegrass music. Awesome atmosphere!

We visited on a Sunday afternoon after the service had ended and all had departed. What a wonderful building and a suitable tribute to the Almighty. Just have a unescorted chance to look around, one could easily see the various activities that bring people together in the community. If you're visiting Berea College, this is a worthwhile addition to your trip.

The Spotlight Playhouse is a regional performing arts theater and event center located in Berea Kentucky at 214 Richmond Road near Family Dollar and Walgreens. The 13000 ft facility houses 3 performance spaces with almost weekly performances year round.
So happy to have a place like this in the area. Great for families and children to experience theatre from ground up. Kids can learn everything from acting to video editing. Also the spotlight player shows are amazing!Thank you for the great review. I will pass along the compliment to our players.
