Visit Devou Park Minutes from Your Bed and Breakfast in KY
Cincinnati is an exciting city with everything that you would expect from a major metropolis. The diversity in dining, entertainment, art, and culture is rare to find. When exploring a region, it’s best to take in as much as you can. Breaking up your adventure with active outings is a great way to help you absorb everything.
Devou Park is just minutes from Willis Graves Bed and Breakfast in KY. It’s on the Kentucky side of the Ohio River, just outside of Covington and Newport. For a park outside a major commercial hub, it sure feels like you’re a world away. There are 700 acres of forest, trails, and overlooks. Bicycle rentals are readily available, giving you access to everything that the park offers.
Take the backcountry trails if you’re more adventurous. Or, stick to the paved street trails if you just want to remain active while exploring somewhere new. There are picnic areas and a picturesque lake. You could even take time out to explore the Behringer-Crawford Museum inside the park. The Devou Park Band Shell is a small outdoor amphitheater where you’ll often find outdoor entertainment on weekends. You can talk to the friendly staff at our Bed and Breakfast in KY to learn about local events.
Drive Out to Big Bone Lick State Park

You can see the majestic bison roaming at any time of year. Bison are our only living link to the Ice Age! They’re here in their full splendor, although you might have to look closely towards shaded trees to see them on hot days.

Boating in Northern Kentucky
