Weekend Fun in Spencer County: Part 2

There was just so much to do in Spencer County, Indiana, I had to break it up into a couple of posts for your viewing enjoyment! (In case you missed Part 1, you can read it here.)

In Rockport, your family can snuggle up together under the stars (or in the back of your SUV) and catch a double-feature on the big screen at the Holiday Drive-In, or dine at the Rockport Inn, a super-old mansion turned into a Bed and Breakfast and restaurant (They have lots of curiosities here. Take a look at that Halloween mannequin in the top photo!).

Just a few minutes from Lake Rudolph is Santa’s Stables where you can enjoy horseback riding. This is a great attraction for the whole family.  Even your little ones will get to ride through the trail with one of the trainers.

{If you’re wondering why my kids are wearing their bike helmets, it’s just because I’m one of those super-vigilant, over-the-top, helicopter-type, ridiculous moms who go overboard with safety.  Honestly, though, it really was a very safe trail ride on calm, beautiful horses, and we couldn’t have had a better time!}

Oh, don’t forget to stop at Buffalo Run Farm, Grill & Gifts where you can feed the buffalo and go inside an old cabin where legend says that Abraham Lincoln once slept.

Speaking of Abraham Lincoln, Spencer County is known as Lincoln’s Indiana Boyhood Home! Enjoy a little history while walking the trails at Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial and Lincoln State Park.

Our first-grader was so excited that he could read to us the facts along the Trail of Twelve Stones, which features notable places in Lincoln’s life.

Who knew a family could do so much in just one weekend?!
