In Kentucky Monthly’s second installment of “24 Hours in …” our writer visits Somerset and gives you the scoop on what to do, where to eat, what to see and where to stay. You’ll discover that you don’t have to travel far to have an awesome mini vacation in our great Commonwealth.

With the completion of the Wolf Creek Dam in 1950, more than just the waters of the Cumberland River began to swell. Somerset, as well as surrounding Pulaski County, grew, too.

Before setting out to explore Somerset, stop by the Somerset-Pulaski County Convention and Visitors Bureau at 522 Ogden Street, where you can pick up all kinds of brochures and collect information.
