Local Tips From One of Gtown's Biggest Fans
Written by Dylan marson
We like to celebrate all the fun things happening in Georgetown/Scott County, but our home in the Bluegrass just wouldn’t be where it is today without the support and love from our amazing local community. And some of these locals go above and beyond to share the best of Georgetown with everyone they can. These are some of Georgetown’s biggest fans.
Robert Phillips was originally from Ohio, before moving to Kentucky with his parents in 1976. He would go on to graduate from Scott County High School in 1983. Today, he continues to be one of our most active community members on social media; Sharing not only the latest tourism news but also all the amazing things that are happening with Georgetown’s many locally owned businesses.
With all that Phillips has done to share what we love about Georgetown, we thought we’d give him a voice to share some of the things that he enjoys about his home in the Bluegrass:
“My favorite things about Georgetown are the friendly people and great restaurants,'' said Phillips. For those looking for some fresh air activity, he reccomends visits to Scott County Park and Great Crossing Park, both beautiful places for taking a walk or fishing.
Local crafters at Sutherland Woodworks create one-of-a-kind woodworking items including whiskey barrel decorations & furniture. And the best place to find some beautiful floral arrangements is Gray Arbor Farms.
Downtown shoppers will want to stop by the Hidden Trove for a unique gift-shopping experience or pay a visit to Abby Mae’s Boutique, which is built inside a historic bank. (Fun Fact: their changing room is inside the old bank vault!) Fuel up after your shopping with some great food at Galvin’s, Fava’s or Babe’s BBQ; all local favorites you won’t want to miss out on.
Lastly, you can experience the best of everything Georgetown has to offer in September during the Festival of the Horse!
