If you are willing to drive a bit, the Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois is 3 hours away and well worth the trip for hiking and scenery. Garden of the Gods, Pound Hollow, and others are beautiful.

There's also a neat little place just up I-65 called Hemlock Cliffs. It's about 30 minutes from Louisville at the Birdseye/English exit. It's pretty secluded but a nice little hike.

Also, Clifty Falls is less than an hour away near Madison, Indiana. Great hiking and waterfalls.

I don't know if this is seasonal, but going over to the waterfront downtown there are usually fun things to do. My cousins were always trying to get me to go there whenever I visit but I mainly spend most of my time hopping from house to house trying to see everyone!

I did go to the Louisville Slugger Museum and had a bat made for my little girl. I was late for the tour, maybe I'll make it next time. It was cool place to visit
