Kentucky Living announces Best of Kentucky award winners

HORSE CAVE Ky. – Two attractions miles apart were both winners in this years Kentucky Living Best of Kentucky Awards.

Five Broke Girls in Horse Cave won best hamburger for the second year in a row. The small establishment run by a tight knit group of people is a local meeting place and now a roadside attraction for many people passing through the area.

“It feels really, really good. And we are so appreciative for everybody who had nominated us and voted for us.” Jackie Kulaga, manager at Five Broke Girls said. 

“You know, people, they didn’t know we were here. Now, you know, we were here and they come back. They don’t live in horse cave, they’re from surrounding areas.

Mammoth Cave National Park is a bespoke attraction, with thousands of visitors per year, which makes it a fitting recipient of both the Best place for adventure and best road trip. The National Park is both a great road trip, being only 30-40 minutes north of Bowling Green, and with its miles of trails and nearly 400 miles worth of caves, some of which are open to the public, it is certainly a place one can find a great deal of adventure.

“I think with Mammoth Cave National Park, there’s something here for everyone. Each and every individual who comes to the park boundary can find their own sense of adventure, whether that be going on a cave tour, going on a hiking trail, seeing the sights, viewing wildlife. There’s just something here for everyone.” Jessie Cooper with the National Park Service said.
