Whether you’re married, single, engaged or somewhere in between, every man knows that, sometimes, you just need to kick it with your boys.
A guy’s trip is something you grow to appreciate more and more as you get older. And in a city known for bourbon, bluegrass, barbecue and the beauty of nature, there’s no better place than Owensboro for a fun-fueled getaway for the guys.
If you’re into bourbon, you can take the entire group – whether big or small – to Green River Distilling Co. for an amazing tour of the historic facility. Ranked in the Top 5 Best Bourbon Tours in Kentucky, Green River Distilling Co. is the westernmost spot on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. Also, you’ll get to close the tour by tasting three different bourbons produced at the distillery, all for only $20/person.
And while you’re in a city known for its bourbon, you should definitely check out The Miller House’s basement bar, Spirits – known for one of the largest collections of bourbon in the country.
It’s hard to find a guy who doesn’t like barbecue, and there’s no better place to grab lunch or dinner than at one of Owensboro’s famous barbecue restaurants. You can check out historic spots like Moonlite and Old Hickory, or newer places like Ole South, for a meal you’ll never forget.
Be sure to check out live music venues like the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum before you plan your trip, where you can see the best Bluegrass artists in the world play a live show. You can also spend a night at Brasher’s Lil’ Nashville for some of the best rock and country music in the state!
And if you’re the kinda guy who likes a good beer, take the whole group bar-hopping to explore Owensboro’s nightlife. Check out Brew Bridge for some locally-brewed options, as well as Lure Seafood and Grille, Pub on Second, Mellow Mushroom and SIP Owensboro, where you can get amazing views of the Ohio River from the outdoor patio.
Dano’s Cigar Lounge is the perfect place to kick back, grab a drink and try one of the business’s many top-notch cigars, while the Daviess County Gun Club is the perfect place to try out some skeet and trap shooting at a beautiful 75-acre course.
And if your group has been itching for even more outdoor adventure, head to Diamond Lake Resort, where you can spend an entire day fishing on the lake.
