Get in

By Car

Henderson lies at the intersection of US highways 41 and 60. US 41 provides access from the north and south, while US 60 can be used to access the city from the east and west. Two of Kentucky's parkways terminate in Henderson. The Audubon Parkway provides access from Owensboro to the east and the Edward T. Breathitt Pennyrile Parkway provides access from Hopkinsville to the south. When completed, I-69 will run through Henderson providing access from the north and south.

By Plane

Two regional airports are nearby in Evansville and Owensboro. The nearest international airports are located just over a 2 hours drive in either Louisville or Nashville, Tennessee.





Both Henderson and Henderson County are wet. They allow package alcohol sales, bars, and drinks to be sold in restaurants.

By phone

Most telephone numbers in Henderson consist of +1 270 plus a seven-digit number, but the area is now served by an overlay complex of two area codes, with 364 being the second. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call). The same applies on the Indiana side of the river, with that area now being served by 930 in addition to the old 812.

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 270 before these if no area code is indicated (or 812 if in Indiana).
