I just love HerKentucky readers! We've posted our Summer Fun Lists throughout the month of June, and so many of y'all have chimed in on Facebook and Instagram about things you love about summer in Kentucky -- especially the

Tangerine Twist from Crisp's in Ashland!

 One reader -- my elementary school friend Myra Patton Newman (we were co-editors of the fifth grade newspaper together!) -- even sent in her own list to share the best of Northern Kentucky. There are a few on here, like Rabbit Hash and Elk Creek, that I've always wanted to visit, and several more that are new to me! Thanks so much to Myra for sharing this awesome summer fun list!!

Today's Summer Fun List takes you to Ashland, the river town at the very northeastern corner of the Commonwealth. My beau's family lives there, and I've gotten to know it pretty well over the years. Here are some recommendations for enjoying summertime in Ashland!
