Travel website Insider.com recently listed Owensboro as one of the best places in the country to visit this fall. Owensboro was specifically praised for its barbeque, bourbon and farmers’ market.
“Any time you’re selected to a ‘Best Place to Visit’ list by a travel publication, it’s an absolute honor,” said Visit Owensboro’s Dave Kirk. “You just can’t buy this kind of publicity, especially during a pandemic.”
The website considered Owensboro part of the “Kentucky Triangle,” which also includes Bowling Green and Paducah.
Visit Owensboro partnered with Bowling Green and Paducah last year to form Kentucky’s Americana Triangle of Quilts, Cars and Guitars. The campaign is now drawing national attention, Kirk said.
“We believed by partnering with two other incredible, drivable destinations that our reach would stretch farther,” he said. “This is exactly what happened with giving us this recognition. We look forward to exploring even more partnerships with these great cities.”
Other notable destinations listed include San Francisco, Tarrytown, New York, Vermont, Salt Lake City, the Smoky Mountains, Salem, Orlando, Asheville and Boston.
