Maysville's Best: The River
You can't have a Maysville's Best without a nod to the majestic Ohio River.
The Ohio River is a 981 mile long artery that flows through the Heart of America -- from Pittsburgh, PA, to the Mississippi River near Cairo, IL -- and it's such an integral part of the city, past and present. You'd have a hard time finding another town that has more river culture in its history than Maysville Kentucky and, unlike many of the larger cities along the river, Maysville has kept its river town identity. Today you'll find some of the best fishing, camping, and other recreational activities in Kentucky occur right on the Ohio River near Maysville. In the past decade or so, city officials have worked hard to make the landing a functioning and attractive port for the steamboats that still travel the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers like in the days of Mark Twain. The Delta Queen steamboat makes routine stops in Maysville as it passes through.
