I started my exploration of Kentucky this week by driving east along the Ohio river from Covington to Maysville. Along the way I made a quick stop in the tiny town of Augusta, where I got the warmest welcome into a place I could possible imagine in an old red caboose at the very end of Main Street. The caboose was the site of the town’s Welcome Center, and the welcome came from Ms. Dorothy who has been welcoming visitors to Augusta for the last 16 years. I love stopping into local Visitors Centers wherever I go. I get travel ideas from younger people through Yelp and TripAdvisor, but I love the Visitors Centers because I can usually find someone there from an older generation, someone with stories to tell about wherever I am.
