Murray, Kentucky, located about 3 ½ hours from Louisville, has been called the “Friendliest Small Town in America” by USA Today for good reason.
The city of Murray is big in charm yet small in size, comprising only about 11 square miles. Step one foot in this tiny town and you’ll see just what makes it so enchanting to locals and visitors alike.
With over 200 years of history neatly packed into four square blocks, Downtown Murray boasts the kind of small town charm that can only be found in Kentucky.
