While some of you may only like to go on cruises for a vacation, I would encourage you to explore other alternatives. Red River Gorge is only 2-2 1/2 hours away from Cincinnati. It is a great place to go, especially for a weekend retreat. From the breathtaking cliff edges, to the trickling streams, and the first signs of Spring, I can’t wait to get down there.
A vacation on a cruise ship starts around $2000, without kids. A trip to the Gorge can cost around $300-$400 for a family, if you stay at a cabin. If you are looking for a cool place to take your kids, then this is a no brainer. Not only will you and your family enjoy the magnificent beauty around you, but you can let those kids roam free in the wild, as God intended, or take them on a hike, while your wife relaxes at the cabin on the porch. Then when you’re all tired after a day’s hike, you can make some dinner or eat at one of the local eateries. After that you can make a campfire and roast marshmallows for S’mores. I’m telling you, these are the times that I look forward to every year.
Whether you’re coming down for a personal retreat, coming down with your family, or coming down to hang out with your best buds, the Gorge is a perfect place for these opportunities. Being in the same cabin with your friends, you will create memories that will last a lifetime. Or if you’re here for a personal retreat, maybe you will discover something that you never knew about yourself. Or if you’re here with family, perhaps you will receive that much needed break from everyday life.
