78 Winter 2018 live & practice "Owensboro has just been honored as a '2017 Playful City USA' for the second time by KaBOOM!, a national nonprofit. This honor represents the city of Owensboro putting the needs of families first so kids can learn, grow and develop important life skills." Calitri says that Owensboro Parks and Recreation runs a total of 23 parks and that Owensboro families tend to be active: walking, cycling and hiking are popular family activities. "Owensboro is known for the three B's: barbecue, bourbon and bluegrass," Calitri says. A new International Bluegrass Music Museum is under construction, and families can also visit the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art and the Owensboro Museum of Science and History. The Owensboro riverfront is also host to an annual family-friendly event, the International Bar-B-Q Festival. Waring sees many positives to life in Owensboro, particularly as it pertains to quality of life and cost of living. "The East Coast is much more fast-paced," says Waring. In Owensboro, he says, "the lifestyle is much more laid back. The cost of living is much cheaper here. I'm paying about half of what I'd be paying for housing in New York or Connecticut. Sometimes it's not how much you make, it's how much you get to keep."
