Camp Ernst Lake Amenities Photo GalleryThere are several, wonderful parks located in Burlington, KY with lots of space to stretch out and enjoy with friends and family or perhaps to just get away and take a quiet hike by yourself.   Among these parks include the England Idlewild Park, Gunpowder Creek Nature Park and Camp Ernst Lake Park.Photos from Boone County Farmers Market's website  There's also the 50 acre Boone Woods Park which features annual concerts (including concerts with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra), movies and art fairs.  This park is located right off State Rt 18, right behind the local YMCA.  In fact, you might just want to stop by on Sunday, Sept. 16th from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm to enjoy the anual Arts and Crafts Fair, complete with Bluegrass Music, artists and craftsmen.   

You can also drop by the local Boone County Farmer's Market, located at the corner of St. Rt. 18 and 237, to check out the organic foods, plants and crafts.  This market operates every Mon - Sun, April through November, from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.  On Sat, Sept. 8th, you might want to check out the 7th Annual Boone County Farmer's Market Car Show.  Then the following Sat, Sept. 15th, there will be a cooking demonstration at 10:30 am by Chef Maggie Green, who is the author of the Kentucky Fresh Cookbook. 

For more outdoor fun, you can try the Burlington Antique Fair at 5819 Idlewild Rd.  Every 3rd Sunday of the month from April through October, the Boone County Fairgrounds come alive with over 200 antique vendors.  This antique fair is always alive with the hustle and bustle of antique "pickers" of all kinds. In fact, last month the producers of the TV show hit, "American Pickers", shot  a special segment here where amateur pickers competed for the title of  “Top Collector”.  Why not visit on a Sunday when the fair is up and running to see what gem you might be able to find!  For serious lookers, plan on coming early to be among the first to check out all the deals!  

There are so many great restaurants in Burlington KY, you may want to take some time to explore each and every one.  You might want to start with the Tousey House Tavern, located just minutes from the Boone County Fairgrounds at 5963 North Jefferson.  This is a beautiful example of a Federal style home from 1822 and is owned by the same family that owns Ft. Mitchell's popular "Greyhound Grill".  Here at the Tousey House Tavern in Burlington, you'll find a delicious selection of beautifully prepared traditional Southern food that will leave you wanting to return again and again.
