Land Between the lakes received the award for best public hunting and fishing area in both Trigg and Lyon counties, and Purple Toad Winery in McCracken County was named the state’s best winery.
Governor Andy Beshear also recognized finalists of this year’s Beautify the Bluegrass initiative, a program recognizing Kentuckians who enhance their communities.
Finalists include the Lifeline Recovery Center Playground in Paducah. Other finalists were the Veterans Memorial Park Beautification Project in Liberty, Eastern Elementary Garden Club in Pleasureville, Hodgenville Elementary School Natural Trail and Outdoor Classroom, and the Beautify I-65 project in Warren County.
