The Tiny Beach Town In Kentucky You’ve Never Heard Of But Need To Visit
When you think of Kentucky, you may not think of beach towns. For states along a coast, there are sure to be tiny waterfront towns that dot the beaches, but here in Kentucky, we are more known for rolling hills, mountains, and lakes. Luckily, some of those lakes happen to have welcoming beaches, and even a beach town or two. If you’ve vacationed along Kentucky Lake, perhaps you’ve heard of the small town of Gilbertsville. Located right next to the Kentucky Dam, this city is all about the water and it’s definitely a tiny beach town that you may not have heard of yet, but need to visit.
