Come see why the Kentucky Lakes Area is called "Heaven on Earth". Our local communities flow with good ol' southern hospitality.
The people in western Kentucky and northwest Tennessee enjoy a life of beautiful surroundings, an abundance of recreational water, some of the best educational systems, and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
We are blessed to be home to the largest bodies of water between the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. And to top that off, we're proud of our 170,000-acre outdoor playground - Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area.
Fishing, boating, wildlife viewing, taking in the attractions and sampling the dozens of great restaurants in our area. It's a great place to call home.
What more could anyone want? Families, friends and good times... that's what we enjoy.
