I've never been to Kentucky but I'd imagine some of the attendees live there and know the area where we will be staying. Is there any good fishing up there? Should I bring some rods and reels or leave all of the behind in Florida?;)

Red River Gorge is only 45-50 miles away if anyone wants to do a little camping/climbing. It might get a little bit hot though...

Have not posted in this site/thread for a long time but I would like to mention that the same weekend Questapolooza (sp) is going on the same weekend as TDIFest.

see it here.

I am not trying to promote this at all, I dont go to the church, dont do anything with them at all. I just happen to have a family friend who go there and can not boast more about it. Every year it seems Questapolooza gets bigger, and living in KY ( lex) my whole life there is not much to do if you do not like horses, random country drives, or beer/wiskey/Bourbon tasting/trails. Just a heads up if you are coming and want some thing else to do and listen to music there is at least this.
Once again, I am not trying to promote this, i dont even like any of the music, just putting it out there for some thing else to do.

Thanks, that's about what I figured out when I tried to find some attractions nearby.
One good thing, it's cheaper that way, less activities and shorter stay at the hotel ;)

Amazing place. It's not jokingly referred to (in my group of friends) as the "Grand Canyon of the East" for no reason. It is quite a bit smaller and full of trees, but no less beautiful. :)

There are huge overhang type caves, sheer dropoffs, and amazing views. Not really safe for little kids...i'd say 12 or under. Chimney top/half moon/angel arch are the spots to go. Natural bridge state park is good too, but sometimes really crowded.

The Red River Gorge is so close to Lexington I can't pass up the chance to go. It's been at least 6 or 7 years since I've been there...I hope I can find a few spare hours on one of the days on this weekend to get over there!
