Grand Rivers, KY

Discover More

Connecting two of the largest man made lakes in the U.S. you will find the heart of Grand Rivers, an old-fashion Main Street area like one that you remember from another time. What you will not find here; homogeneous big box stores, relentless traffic, stop lights, franchised restaurants, or fast-food and lodging chains. What you will find here; a walkable blend of old Rivertown wood buildings with front porches and benches for the husbands, unique retail therapy inside for the wives, kids in line for ice cream cones, and a walking trail leading to gorgeous lake views and spectacular sunsets. The village center is made complete with the award-winning Patti’s 1880s Settlement and Restaurant and the Badgett Playhouse Theater. Take one look at their glowing online reviews and both will quickly go on your must-visit list.

The Northern Gateway to the National Recreation Area, The Land Between The Lakes, Grand Rivers is the ideal location to explore nature and all it’s beauty. No matter if you idea of exploring is discovering wooded hiking or biking trails, enjoying the over 8,000 acres of lakes, treasure hunting in unique shops & boutiques, dining waterfront or at national known restaurants, or experiencing a live stage production, Grand Rivers, Kentucky, is where you will find it all. Explore the historical “Village Between The Lakes” and all it has to offer.
