Best local news TV station? Meteorologist?
I tend to watch WHAS

Local nature spots?
Anywhere in the Hoosier Nat'l forest. Hemlock Cliffs is a great, albeit short, hike through a box canyon with waterfalls. Closer to L'ville the Adventure hiking trail near Corydon is a scenic ~25 mile loop near the Ohio River or the Knobstone trail is a ~50 mile 'in and out' type trail that starts near Deam Lake. Both are very rough. Closer to town, the Ohio River Greenway is great. You can walk it along the river from Jeffersonville through part of Clarksville to the George Rogers Clark homesite. Eventually it will run all the way to New Albany. It's not finished yet and gets pretty rough and nasty trying to cross Silver Creek so I wouldn't go that far. Actually, I did hike it all the way yesterday and it was interesting, but not safe.

River surprises?
The George Rogers Clark homesite is a nice little spot with a neat view of all the water gushing out of the dam with downtown in the background.

Best restaurants? We like everything!
If you like fish, Mike Linnigs on Cane Run Rd. is good (Seafood, Fried Fish, Mike Linnigs Restaurant, Louisville, Kentucky). There are so many great places to eat in Louisville though, I don't really know where to begin. I would say browse this website for some reviews and ideas (LouisvilleHotBytes.com)

Best route across the river?
Depends where you are headed. I-64 into New Albany usually is better than I-65, but it may not make sense depending on where you are trying to get.

Any flat water kayaking canoeing trip suggestions?
Someone mentioned Cave Country Canoes in Milltown, IN. This is great, or you can also put in the same river (The Blue river) in Fredericksburg. I can't remember the name of the canoe place, but if you were driving by you can't miss it. Trust me, there's not much else in town there.

Greenway walks or day hike areas? Heard something about a monastery with 20 miles of hiking trails?
Again, the Ohio River Greenway is nice. The Jefferson memorial forest also has some nice and easy day hikes. There are two monasteries, about 70 miles or so west of here off of I-64 in Indiana.

Good movie theaters? Affordable local entertainment?
The Palace Theatre on 4th street is amazing if you want to look into their summer movie series (older movies)

I hope you find everything you're looking for!
