Celebrate the Season!

This holiday season, spend time with family and friends taking in some of the wonderful activities Henderson has to offer!

Wolf’s Tavern and Restaurant has just reopened at 31 North Green St. with a full service menu, offering lunch and dinner Monday-Saturday. Nothing says winter like a warm bowl of soup and visiting with friends. The restaurant is located in downtown Henderson among several other interesting architectural businesses and homes. If you’re interested in learning more, stop by The Henderson County Tourist Commission, located in The Depot at 101 N. Water St., and ask for the Historic Walking Tour brochure. This is also an easy-to-drive tour, which offers insights into some of the older homes in downtown. You can download the brochure by clicking here.

Children and adults alike will enjoy the views at “Christmas in the Park” in Central Park. Enjoy light exhibits, a life-size Santa sleigh and wooden displays. Located in the central business district, this holiday display is only moments from the local retailers. You can find everything from shoes, kitchen items, clothing and more in downtown Henderson.

Looking for holiday learning opportunities? Kids will enjoy the Early American Christmas Display at The Depot Community Room at 101 N. Water St. A replica of a pioneer cabin offers fun for all, while a working train display promises entertainment for little ones. The display runs until January 1.

For adults, Ruby Moon Vineyard and Winery offers a perfect place to warm up. Henderson’s only winery is located at 9566 U.S. 41 A. Enjoy a glass of wine by the fireplace and sample gourmet Kentucky-made cheeses. Open Tuesday – Saturday, 11am-6pm.

Nature lovers can catch sight of birds, deer and other wildlife on the trails at Audubon State Park. Don’t feel like braving the weather? Just come into the Museum, which offers heat, and one of the most extensive collections of John James Audubon’s nature artifacts. While inside, you can also view the “Audubon’s Fabulous Fiber” exhibit, which offers a colorful array of fiber artworks.
