Rand McNally and USA Today named Bardstown, Kentucky as the most beautiful small town in America in their 2012 “Best Of The Road” competition. In this video, the author of “Small Town Sexy”, Kim Huston talks about the historic neighborhoods, iconic small town streets, shops, cafes and other wonderful locations in “The Bourbon Capitol Of The World!”
Bardstown won the competition against 650 other small towns from across America. Nicky and Dusty Green were the Rand McNally representatives sent to judge the town and Bardstown clearly pulled out all the stops. They were greeted with a parade with residents lining the streets before they took a tour of all the sights.
Bardstown is the home of Jim Beam, Barton 1792 and Heaven Hill which makes it the natural location for the annual Kentucky Bourbon Festival.
