 Topsail Hill Preserve State Park

We’ve spent a wonderful week at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. (map)

Camp 1

There are several state parks in the area and Topsail is by far the largest. In addition to a couple hundred RV sites, the park is also a 1600 acre nature preserve with pristine dunes along three miles of oceanfront on the Gulf of Mexico.

A Day in Hodgenville Kentucky

A Day in Hodgenville Kentucky

Downtown Hodgenville

Hodgenville Kentucky 

It’s pronounced Haw-Gen-Ville. Population 3,200 and the seat of LaRue County. (view map)

Originally the town was called Hodgen’s Mill, after an early settlement. Locals still add the S to the name, and for a hundred years so did the US post office. So you’ll often hear folks say Hodgensville, regardless of the official spelling.
