The BBB GeoTour (GC497)

Gather up the family and friends and plan a road trip to enjoy three old-fashioned Kentucky traditions with a side of geocaching. Barbecue Mutton smoked from wood, not from a sauce, and definitely not from a bottle. Bourbon, world-renowned Kentucky Bourbon, made from a local natural limestone water source then aged in new charred oak barrels for a minimum of two years. Bluegrass Music completes the trio as Owensboro Kentucky is just minutes away from the home place of Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass. We invite you to experience these three traditions through the Barbecue, Bourbon, and Bluegrass GeoTour; set within the award-winning Smothers Park, located on the Scenic Ohio River.

GeoTour Passport and Reward

For your GeoTour Passport, you will need to collect the trackable codes from the GeoTour informational sign posted near the Geocache.

  • You may log these trackables as well! But keep the trackable's private tracking code as that will be your codeword to enter into the digital online passport.
