Destination Downtown

Bardstown Main Street

Welcome to Bardstown - the Most Beautiful Small Town in America!! Where our southern charm and our respect for tradition is just what you would expect from Kentucky’s second oldest city.

However you choose to experience downtown Bardstown we are certain that you will be welcomed with that traditional southern hospitality that will make you fall in love with us at first sight.

Our Main Street Program was organized to help revitalize downtown Bardstown and is appropriately tailored to meet our community’s local resources, conditions and needs.

With My Old Kentucky Home State Park less than a minute from our Courthouse Square, downtown Bardstown offers something for everyone including browsing our eclectic shops, dining in our fine restaurants, and visiting our many historic attractions within walking distance.
