So I’m from West Liberty, IA – it’s a very exciting town consisting of one flashing yellow signal light. But it’s home and I still have a soft spot for it. Being that I am from WL, IA I knew that I had to visit West Liberty, KY! (There’s a West Liberty, OH too – that’s next).
But yes – on one of our Saturday drives – we headed south to KY and stopped in West Liberty!
Along the way along 460 we found Broke Leg Falls near Ezel, KY. I really can’t find much info out about it but we whizzed past the sign and then slammed on the brakes to turn around and see what it was – SO GLAD WE DID!
After all that, we were hungry and it was getting dark so we headed up to Paris, KY and found Jerry’s!
It appears from the comments this used to be a chain but there aren’t many left. It was definitely old school and LOTS of old people as well!
They were also selling this homemade sweet sorghum. I asked if it was like syrup and they said “Um no.” They couldn’t really explain what it WAS like but said you eat it with biscuits. I decided to pass.
This was also our day for interesting food items. We stopped somewhere along the way for a snack and found these. The Red Velvet were like twinkies but I’ve NEVER heard of Mrs. Freshley’s! Larry seemed to remember Mambas from his childhood and he was happy to mow down the whole pack!
Why Should You Go? Well, it’s nearly a 3 hour drive so you gotta really wanna go! But – the Falls were definitely worth the drive and we were just lucky enough to stumble upon it. Maybe check it out for a lazy day picnic with an overnight stay at a B&B?
