Several publications from the land down under list Owensboro as a must see when traveling in Kentucky. The article, “The New USA Bucket List: 11 Top Places You Need to See,” features several different states and specific cities that Australians should travel to when visiting the USA.  The publications Sunday Herald Sun, Sunday Mail Adelaide, Sunday Mail Brisbane, Sunday Tasmanian, Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Times all feature Owensboro in an article picked up from Escape.com.au.

“We’ve been working closely with the Kentucky Department of Tourism’s International travel department to bring attention to what Owensboro has to offer.  We strongly believe we have international attractions that the world needs to see,” said Dave Kirk, Visit Owensboro Destination Management.
