Our Overnight Getaway

Over the 4th of July holiday, Shawn and I took an overnight trip to the Corydon, Indiana/Louisville, Kentucky area.  We had lots of stops on the itinerary....Paula Deen Buffet, Squire Boone Caverns, the hotel, Cheesecake Factory, the mall, and then the next day we went to the Louisville Mega Caverns and to the Kingfish Restaurant. I've blogged about Squire Boone Caverns and Louisville Mega Caverns in separate entries, so this entry will be an overview of the entire trip along with pictures :)

Our first stop was the Paula Deen Buffet at the Indiana Horseshoe Hotel and Casino.  I had read the reviews on this restaurant and there was more bad than good reviews.  Shawn's brother and his wife had went a few weeks ago and they said it was good, so we decided to check it out.  The food was alright - nothing horrible, but nothing spectacular either.

Our next stop was Squire Boone Caverns (you can click on the link above, to see about that stop).  After that excursion, we were ready to head to the hotel.  We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Corydon, Indiana.  It was the perfect choice!  The hotel was nice and clean, everyone was super friendly, and everything was super comfortable. 

After we had checked into the hotel, did a little swimming, and then unpacked and got ready, we drove into Louisville to go to the mall to do some shopping and then headed to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory.  It was delicious as always!

At the Cheesecake Factory, I had the Farfalle with Chicken and Roasted Garlic.  And for dessert, I had the Chris' Outrageous Chocolate Cake (A Cheesecake Factory Original - Layers of Moist Chocolate Cake, Chewy Brownie, Toasted Coconut-Pecan Frosting and Creamy Chocolate Chip Coconut Cheesecake.) 

On Friday when we checked out of the hotel, we drove around Corydon for a few minutes, then headed to the Louisville Mega Caverns (you can click the link above to find out about that stop).  After the cavern tour, we headed to lunch at the Kingfish Restaurant in Jeffersonville and then headed home to pick up Gavin and then our puppies.

We had alot of fun and I truly enjoy these little getaways to spend some quality time with my husband!
