Thorn Hill Dragway, a quarter-mile drag strip near the village, was originally the Thorn Hill Airfield and was built during Prohibition by “Bootleggers” who were transporting moonshine by small plane. Today a local car club runs the track.
Wide-open spaces leave plenty of time and room for outdoor enthusiasts, and many homes nearby house horses for leisure riding. Kenton Lake and the Licking River provide sport for fishermen, and AJ Jolly Golf Course and Park offer additional recreation in the area.
The Morning View Heritage Area is 213 acres of dedicated conservation space. Although not open to the public at this time, there are plans to permit hiking, bird watching and education uses on the land in the future. The Mary Kathryn Dickerson Learning Center – which is an English-style barn made mostly of salvaged and hand-sawn wood – is located on this property.
