After our visit to Garden of the Gods, we drove on about 25 minutes to Elizabethtown (population: 300) for lunch.  One of the few restaurants was “E-town River Restaurant” right on the river.  It has indoor and outdoor seating, cheap and mostly fried food.  No real kid menu, but they do offer basic grilled cheeses for kids or chicken fingers.  Before you leave the parking lot, walk up to the white pagoda at the top of the hill for great views of the Ohio River.  Also, I’m not sure why, but there is a mini Statue of Liberty there which my kids loved seeing.
