Bourbon Country Drive-In Theater

The Bourb0n County drive-in theater is a great way to mix a retro scene with a modern movie. It's a great place to take the family or to have a romantic evening. While you are there, try some good old fashioned hamburgers and deep fried pickles.

Hutchinson's Drug Store in Lexington

Established in 1926, the Hutchinson drug store is a great place to sip a malt or shake. Inside you will find mosaic tiled floors, metal ceilings, and antique glass cabinets filled with vintage apothecary equipment. And, incredible as it may seem, it is still a functioning drug store.

Hutchinson's is located at the corner of Broadway and Short in Lexington, Kentucky.

A little Kentucky trivia...

According to Ask Yahoo, Lexington resident Henry Earl (A.K.A. James Brown) holds the record for being arrested more times than any other person. As of January 2007, Henry is said to have been arrested 937 times. The What's up with Earl web page keeps tabs on his arrests and claims that Earl has spent almost twice as much time in jail as he has out of jail. An article in Newsweek says that Earl has achieved an almost cult-like following and has even been on various talk shows because of his disgraceful record.
