Last June, I check out Owensboro on TripAdvisor.  I was curious to see what visitors think about Owensboro.  I mean, I live here so I know what I like to do and what I think the highlights are.  But what is Owensboro like from the outside looking in?  I quickly discovered that a few things on the list were no-brainers.  However, a couple of attractions in the Top Ten surprised me last year.  So, I decided to check it out again and get an updated list.  And here are the new TripAdvisor rankings!


Here are the Top Ten Things To Do in Owensboro, KY according to TripAdvisor.com.

#10- Owensboro Museum of Science and History (was #7)

#9- Don's Consignment (was #8)

#8-  Western Kentucky Botanical Garden (was #9)

#7- Legion Park (was #5)

#6- Panther Creek Park (no change)

#5-  Yellow Creek Park (was #4)

#4- Reid's Orchard (was #3)

#3- Preservation Station (was #10)

#2- International Bluegrass Music Museum (no change)

#1- Smothers Park (still the champ)

And, this year, we have to give an honorable mention shout-out to O.Z. Tyler Distillery.  The new Owensboro distllery/attraction has only been operational and open for a few months, but it's already approaching Top Ten status.  It is currently sitting at #11.
