By WestKyStar & LBL Staff
GOLDEN POND, KY - The Making Memories tour company from Missouri brought over twenty people to Western Kentucky and Tennessee recently to participate in the “Southern Cooks Tour,” which included meals, cooking demonstrations and local attractions. 

The group learned “How to Make a Kentucky Hot Brown” at Lake Barkley State Resort Park; tasted biscuits with sorghum, honey and strawberry jam from Dark Fire Farms in Dover, Tennessee; experienced different styles of cornbread in Paris, Tennessee; ate a sampler plate at the Old 23rd restaurant in Big Sandy, Tennessee; traveled through a progressive dinner at the Blue Heron, the Cabin, Reva’s and the Cadiz Antique Mall Ice Cream Parlor, all in Cadiz, Kentucky; enjoyed meals from the Brass Lantern, Aurora, Kentucky; and toured the Trail of Tears in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, and the Elk and Bison Prairie at Land Between the Lakes.
John Rufli, executive director of the Friends of Land Between the Lakes said, “This tour was organized by the Lakes Region Coalition, which represents Trigg, Christian and Marshall Counties and Grand Rivers in Kentucky and Benton, Henry and Stewart Counties in Tennessee. We promote the Land Between the Lakes region at several bus travel shows each year.”

Lakes Region Coalition President Bill Stevens, Cadiz-Trigg County Tourism Commission, added, “It was a pleasure to work with Making Memories Tours, which has already made plans to bring additional buses to our region. All our communities and attractions worked cooperatively to make us a great destination for the tour bus. Bus tours are an exciting new branch of tourism for the region surrounding the Land Between the Lakes.”

The Friends of Land Between the Lakes work in partnership with the US Forest Service to provide educational program and information services, volunteer activities, funds development and to help promote the wise and sustainable use of the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area.
