Like any wise wanderer, you know that travel is so much more than checking things off a bucket list. The true experience of a new place is not about going through the motions, it’s about delving deeply into the regional history, culture, and scenic wonder. Welcome to Elizabethtown, where you can sink your teeth into a hearty meal and then set out on a lakeside adventure before walking through history. What other region can claim the birthplace of both bourbon and Abraham Lincoln?
A short drive away, adventures to Fort Knox and Mammoth Cave National Park (the world's largest cave system) will add even more excitement to your getaway. Book one of the top Elizabethtown hotels on Travelocity, and your vacation is off to a most promising start.
Check into one of our cheap hotels in Elizabethtown, or ""E-Town"" as the locals call it, and you’re ready to put on your adventure cap. You'll have a staggering list of potential adventures. Conserve your mileage and stay right in town to explore the margins of Freeman Lake Park. Rent a boat and propel yourself forth, watching as glimmering droplets of water cascade from your paddle and catch the light of the afternoon sun. Cast a line out and relax! As you wait for the rainbow trout and largemouth bass to bite and listen to the sound of the breeze skimming over the water, you'll discover plenty of time to ponder the mystery of a world that can feel so complex. Continue your outdoor fun with a trip to the Elizabethtown Nature Park and learn about local lore at the Hardin County History Museum.
No trip to the South would be fit for a wise wanderer without ample platefuls of soul food and good home cooking, and you won’t have to leave Elizabethtown to find something worth sinking your teeth into. Please your palate at the Back Home Restaurant or slide into a booth at a local deli. Indian food, Thai cuisine, and hip coffee bars also make up the landscape here. If you’re not sure where to begin, ask a friendly local about their favorite spot and then get ready to find out why it’s worth bragging about. If an evening of elegance is on the itinerary, make the journey north to Louisville. Fine dining and an eclectic nightlife thrive here, and you’ll be back in Elizabethtown just in time to get a good night’s rest and return to your adventures in the morning.
If you’re trying to determine where to stay in Elizabethtown, look no further. Book a room on Travelocity, and you’ll have plenty of cash left over to take day trips and indulge in good food. Follow up your trip to Elizabethtown with a stay in one of our Louisville hotels, where the legacy of baseball and horse racing surrounds you with magic and excitement. Travelocity helps you organize your whole trip, so you can keep all your focus on the graceful gallop of that lead horse.
