  • Plenty of entertainment at Renfro Valley

     We have often drive by Renfro Valley on our way to the Smoky Mountains. “The Valley” is only about two hours away from Shepherdsville. 

    This summer after stumbling upon www.renfrovalley.com we decided to make “The Valley” and Berea a weekend summer get-away, and are we glad that we did!

    This area may just be one of the most overlooked destinations in Kentucky. It offers some great shopping, handmade artisan crafts, delicious eating, and great family shows.
