Recreation

Local points of interest in Boone County include The Dinsmore Homestead in Burlington, a look into the past through the lives of the Dinsmore Family and Rabbit Hash, a unique Ohio River hideaway featuring the Rabbit Hash General Store (est. 1831), where the Dog Mayor, Goofey may be found lying around. This quaint community was the focus of the movie "Rabbit Hash, Center of the Universe". The City of Walton has recently purchased the Abner Gaines property, and will establish the Gaines Tavern History Center in this 2 1/2 story brick home that may have been built as early as 1791, but definitely by 1814.

For more adult recreation try thoroughbred racing at nearby Turfway Park in Florence. Or racing of the 4 wheeled kind at the  Kentucky Speedway down in Sparta. To get your pulses racing, try your luck at the casinos in Indiana.

Visit the Cincinnati Zoo or the Newport Aquarium, or take in a Cincinnati Reds or Bengals game with friends or family. Kings Island is only about 1 hour north of the City on I-71.

For day trips, the State Parks of Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana offer affordable and attractive lodges and recreational facilities.
