"A designated UNESCO Creative City of Crafts & Folk Art since 2013, and home of the awe-inspiring National Quilt Museum, this riverfront town is about two hours from Nashville.

Artist studios and restaurants abound amid the 20-block, beautifully maintained historic downtown, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In addition, an expansive historical mural flanks the Ohio River bank."
