Today on our way to Nashville, Tennessee we stop off at the Corvette Factory to see the plant and the museum. I have plenty of pictures of the museum, but unfortunately, they don’t allow any photography at the factory, so I have no pictures. Corvette Plant facts.
The museum was cool to see the different body styles over the years. They also had a time-lapse video of the sinkhole collapse that destroyed a bunch of their cars.
Today we drove to Louisville, Kentucky and we had a tour set up of the grounds at Churchill Downs. When we arrived, we had some time to check out the museum with all the original handmade Kentucky Derby hats which were cool and unique. The tour was great we got to see where the trainers and the jockeys live and saw some hot walkers walk the horses around and also saw them taking care of the prized horses.
The next morning we were lucky enough to be able to come back for free to see the trainers work with the horses and run them on the track. Watching the trainers train the horses were terrific John and I both loved it. We love horses, so this was something exciting for us. When John was younger, he had a job as a hot walker at Belmont Racetrack.
We hope to one day be a part of the Kentucky Derby.
On the way to Bowling Green we stopped and took a tour of the Jim Beam Distillery which was exciting since it’s my favorite Bourbon. We had a chance to bottle our own bottle of Knob Creek and put our thumbprint in the wax seal which was very cool.
