In the early 2010s, after Lake Cumberland’s water level rose to its normal level after its drastic fall (which caused a drought in Pulaski County’s economy) and Somerset and Burnside went “wet”, Pulaski County’s economy began to grow exponentially due to tourism, mainly from Ohio. Downtown Burnside had become a ghost town during Lake Cumberland’s decline, and has not fully recovered, although a few new businesses are popping up. Before the lake’s decline, the Seven Gables Motel was a prominent motel in south central Kentucky.

Pulaski County is a “moist” county as defined by The Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The County features two “Small Farm Wineries” that sell wine to the public. The City of Somerset voted on June 26, 2012, to go fully “wet”, which means alcoholic beverages can be purchased by the package and restaurants and bars can serve them by the drink. On October 15, 2013, the City of Burnside voted to go fully “wet” by a count of 123–39. All other areas of Pulaski County are “Dry”.
