RV Trip To Georgetown, KY, TTer’s Rally Day 3

Day 3 began as usual with coffee at the pavilion then leftover pizza at the coach for our breakfast.  Then the group headed out for the Ark Encounter about 30 miles north of the campground but, once again, I stayed home due to the heavy walking involved – I’ve got to get this hip fixed.  Here are some pics that Pat and the web took.

The Ark is billed as the world’s largest wooden structure and along with the other park facilities costs about $100 million to build.  It is 510’ long, 85’ wide, and 51’ high (I can’t recall how many cubits that is) and contains three decks.

Bev is a big fan of Kentucky Hot Brown sandwiches so she went on-line and talked with the campground staff in search of restaurants that serve them finding Fava’s Restaurant which has been in business on the main street of downtown Georgetown since 1910

It began as a confectioner and has had several owners over the years and is now a long narrow restaurant with table, booth, and counter seating.

Bev and Pat both ordered the Kentucky Hot Brown ($10) and I had catfish ($10) all with a side salad.

The salad was very basic and the dressing was obviously not restaurant made and my catfish was from a frozen bag but the hot browns were obviously something they were proud of – good looking and very tasty - I should have ordered the hot brown.

That evening we convened at the pavilion for some good visiting.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. Looks like a wonderful day . we plan on visiting the Ark this fall on our way south thanks for the preview. And the tip about the Kentucky hot brown it sure looks yummy.

  2. Larry, There is a lot of wood in the Ark Encounter! It is massive but I'd skip it and go for that great looking Hot Brown! Its been quite a while since I've had a good hot brown... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  3. I've still never had a Kentucky Hot Brown and this one has me drooling. Sorry your lunch wasn't as tasty. The ark looks MASSIVE and very cool.

  4. I live in Louisville and love to eat Hot Browns at the Brown Hotel where they were originally made. If you go to The Brown Hotel's website they have the recipe for the original Hot Brown still served at the hotel restaurant. They are yummy!
