As Kentucky’s 4th-largest city, Owensboro nestles along the scenic Ohio River in the western part of the state. Known as the culinary and cultural hub of western Kentucky, Owensboro boasts a plethora of delightfully delicious, locally-owned eateries and a lively arts community. Of course, there’s a lot to do here too. Locals and visitors alike expect to enjoy:
Owensboro’s signature hickory-smoked barbecue mutton and flavorful burgoo,
A sample of Kentucky’s finest bourbons, and
Kentucky’s home to the International Bluegrass Music Museum.
But you’ll find culture (Broadway shows or the Owensboro Symphony Orchestra) at RiverPark Center or at the Museum of Fine Art and Owensboro Museum of Science and History. Get close to nature at Owensboro’s Western Kentucky Botanical Garden. Or celebrate all year long at one of Owensboro’s more than 20 annual festivals, including the ROMP bluegrass music festival, Big O Music Fest, International Bar-B-Q Festival, and the Western Kentucky Botanical Garden’s Daylily Festival.
