The consensus of last week’s summit was that Taylorsville Lake remains the main draw for tourism and recreation in Spencer County. The group is seeking ways to better market and promote tourism opportunities in the community.
Tourism group touts restaurant tax


A summit of Spencer County residents and businesses interested in promoting tourism and recreation in the county was held last week with the prevailing concensus being that, while neighbor counties are seeing tourism booming from efforts such as the Bourbon Trail, Spencer County’s great potential remains untapped. One solution batted around was the implementation of a city restaurant tax.

Most agreed that the biggest draw in Spencer County is Taylorsville Lake, but more needs to be offered that will keep people in town longer.
