High adventure meets history when you board Rockin’ Thunder’s new 20-passenger jet boat for a Kentucky River History and Nature Tour. Enjoy expert narration by exceptional guides conducting memorable and entertaining tours of the family’s opulent late 18th century city house and rustic 19th Century country estate.

First, meet at Liberty Hall, the 1796 home of Kentucky’s first US Senator, John Brown. You’ll learn about early Kentucky life and the Brown family’s connection to the river. A light breakfast includes our exclusive Liberty Hall Tea and local Bourbon Barrel Coffee from Kentucky Knows and breakfast breads.

After a short van ride to the Kentucky River View Park, you’ll board the jet boat and leave Frankfort behind. Your Captains, Paul and Jane will delight you with river stories and lore, as well as pointing out important landmarks. Along the way you will lock through two dams built in 1838 and perhaps spot Bald Eagles and more Kentucky wildlife.

Your down-river trip ends at Blue Wing, the Brown family’s 1850 peach plantation and summer retreat near Gratz, now lovingly restored by Doug and Kathleen Martin. While there you’ll enjoy a locally catered lunch and live music. Good food, great scenery, history and fun!

This special tour is a fundraising partnership with Rockin’ Thunder and Blue Wing Landing. Tickets for this charity fundraiser are $250 with $100 of that fully tax deductible as a donation to Liberty Hall Historic Site. For information on tax deductions, please call (502) 227-2560.
