Welcome to Kentucky Lake

Mix in water, music and Bar-B-Q, and you have Kentucky’s Lake region! Swim, kayak or jet-ski your way across the region’s many lakes. Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley and the Land Between the Lakes are some of the most popular. Dry off and head to “Quilt City, USA,” better known as Paducah, for the National Quilt Museum and annual quilt show. Then, try and resist the sweet smell of the International Bar-B-Q Festival in Owensboro. Participate in a keg toss, watch a live show and, of course, enjoy some Bar-B-Q! Stay in Owensboro for its other claim to fame, bluegrass music! Tour the International Bluegrass Music Museum for the sounds and history of this sub-genre of country music. The only thing missing in the mix of Kentucky’s Lake region is you!
