Imagine awakening in a Kentucky town along the Ohio River. Bluegrass music drifts down the streets and the smell of freshly distilled bourbon wafts through the air. It’s not often that passions are so easily detected, but you appreciate a place where people identify an interest and hone a craft so much that it becomes synonymous with its identity. Your mind wanders to all corners of this town, thinking about the possibilities that lay in front of you. Step outside your comfort zone and see what this lovely town in the Bluegrass State has to offer.
Doff your most comfortable walking shoes and go for a morning meander around the Adkisson Greenbelt Park that encircles the city. This wonderful trail will link you with the many different neighborhoods, business districts, and parks across town. Be sure to make your way through the sculpture park along the bike route and snap a picture next to the “Into the Wind” bronze buffalo statue. The spirit of a roaming buffalo inspires you to wander further. Head back to the hotels in Owensboro, KY and freshen up because you’re going gallivanting about town.
The aroma of mash bills containing corn, rye, wheat, and malted barley has crept into your senses by now. They’re originating from the Charles Medley Distillery on the banks of the Ohio River. Take a stroll through the historic red-brick building where Kentucky’s most famous liquid is made daily. The folks that make this delicious liquid pour their heart and souls into the craft, which is why you’re drawn to enjoying it. Let the dark brown libation slide down your throat until it settles warmly in your belly. After your bourbon tour, rest easy at one of our Owensboro hotels. You’ll feel right at home.
When you feel it’s time to explore more of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, slip behind the wheel of one of our Owensboro rental cars and cruise 107 miles east. A nice two-hour drive through the Bluegrass Region is a perfect way to clear your mind. You’ll eventually come to the “Derby City” where our Louisville hotels are waiting to make you comfortable.
