Springtime not only begins good weather, but it also allows for fun activities outside. There are many places around Louisville that are inexpensive and fun to go to with friends.
One popular place to go to is Steel City Pops. They sell multiple flavors of popsicles and all of their products are made organically. Makenna Fisher (11) said, “I like the atmosphere of the place and their popsicles are really good. My favorite is the caramel one.”
Steel City Pops is located on Bardstown Rd which is a unique part of Louisville. Fisher added, “I like the location because there are stores to shop at and places to eat close to there and it’s a fun place to go with friends.”
Another cool place to go is the Louisville Zoo. A one day admission pass isn’t very expensive, so it’s a great place to go with friends or family.
Abby Hageman (11) said, “I love going when it’s warm outside and just hanging out with my friends or whoever. My favorite animals are the giraffes and the monkeys. I also like taking pictures by all the statues.”
Not only is it fun, but you get to learn more about different kinds of animals. Hageman added, “Sometimes I’ll stop to read the fun facts and stuff that are near the exhibits and I try to hear a little when there are like guest speakers or zoo keepers by the enclosures.”
If you are more of a nature person, then fishing is a great activity for you. You should check out Nolin and Taylorsville lakes.
Maddie Huddleston (11) said, “My favorite thing about fishing would probably be getting to yell ‘fish on!’ The suspense of what could be on the other side of the line and the fight it gives you to get it out of the water, hoping you got a big one.”
Huddleston added, “More people should fish because it’s a good hobby to get into. It could be a big stress reliever just to sit on the boat or listening to the sounds of nature around you. It’s a good way to get out of the house. It could be a great way to enjoy some family time.”
No matter what activity you decide to do in the spring just make sure you have some fun in the sun.
