NOW PLAYING: Carrollton, Kentucky

Located midway between Cincinnati and Louisville where the Ohio and Kentucky Rivers meet, Carrollton is the kind of town where you can still get a good breakfast, read a paper, and look out at the river, all under one roof. It's a place where the best story is told while meeting at the crosswalks, and the church bells still ring at noon. Carrollton is the kind of place that should be on your list of scenic drives as you tour north central Kentucky. Carrollton is only 14 miles from the Kentucky Speedway and 20 miles from Belterra Casino in Indiana. Carrollton is home to one of Kentucky's finest state parks, General Butler State Resort Park. This beautiful park encompasses 791 acres and surrounds a relaxing 30 acre lake. The Butler-Turpin State Historic House (c. 1859) sets proudly on the hill watching her coveted grounds. Carrollton is also home to the Historic Masterson House (c 1790) where you can experience the heritage of a time-gone-by. Spinning, basket making, lye soap making, rock masonry, fence making, and candle making are a few of the demonstrations.
