Kentuckians Have Spoken And This Is The Absolute Favorite Donut Shop In The State

One thing you quickly learn when sharing the best of Kentucky is that our state is passionate about food. When calling something the best, you better believe others will have a different local destination in mind that they believe to be the best. There’s really no better argument than one over the most delicious food in the Bluegrass, because we are all winners!

This was all recently brought to light when we featured a local donut shop in an article, which you can read here. We believe that bakery has amazing donuts, but many of you made it clear that there’s another favorite that cannot be ignored. Located in Paducah, Red’s Donut Shop has been a beloved favorite for well over 50 years and we are so glad you let us know about it!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
