#GetSocial with new feature on our website!

A new feature on is helping build excitement about Lake Cumberland through social media.

The #GetSocial hub aggregates social media posts and shares them with website visitors. The hub includes posts with hashtags related to Lake Cumberland or other tourism destinations around the area, as well as posts from specific geographic locations on the lake. Posts are reviewed and approved by website administrators, who take special care to choose quality content.

Site visitors can then browse these posts directly from the home page by clicking the #GetSocial button (or the green icon with hashtag anytime you see it on the site) and navigating between channels for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube.

Users can choose to view content posted by Somerset-Pulaski County CVB or by others, and can also share posts through their own Facebook or Twitter accounts.

“The GetSocial hub is a great way for everyone — whether they are new or potential visitors, residents or frequent vacationers — to see what’s happening on Lake Cumberland,” said Carolyn Mounce, executive director of the Somerset-Pulaski County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We guarantee you will truly enjoy the content that appears in the hub. The scenic photos of our lake are wonderful, and many posts provide great suggestions for ways to have fun in and out of the water.”

#GetSocial content is updated daily. For more information, contact the Somerset-Pulaski County Convention and Visitors Bureau at 1-800-642-6287 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
