Welcome to Inside the MKY
This blog will be written by the staff of the Murray Convention and Visitors Bureau, along with guest bloggers from time to time.
This blog will be focused on the latest and greatest happenings in Murray. From restaurant openings to newly announced events, we promise to bring you the inside scoop. We want your feedback, too. What do you want to see posts about on this blog? What are your favorite activities in Murray and Western Kentucky?
You may be wondering, what exactly does the Convention and Visitors Bureau do? Well, the CVB promotes tourism in Murray, Kentucky. The mission of the CVB is to bring more overnight stays to Murray. Typically, the reason people stay in a hotel in Murray is for an event. The CVB recruits and executes events such as small conferences and sporting events, which bring people from all over the state and country to our town. In the past, Murray has been fortunate to host sporting events such as FLW Tour Stops, USTA Kentucky Mixed Doubles Championship (two years) and the Kentucky Senior Games (two years). Events such as these have an economic impact on our community, as participants and spectators spend money in our shops, restaurants, hotels and gas stations.
We hope you will stay tuned to our blog for insider information on your favorite restaurants, shops and events. In the meantime, take a look at our Instagram account for some awesome seasonal photos of Murray.
