Home of the Corvette, natural wonders and unique, first-class attractions, take your crew to where the rubber meets the road in Bowling Green, Kentucky! This charming city is nestled among rolling hills just one hour north of Nashville, TN, where the classic American sports car is celebrated and there is a new adventure around every curve. From car enthusiasts to family fun, this thriving and beautiful town welcomes all.
Folks are calling Bowling Green “Hot Rod City, USA” for good reason. Visitors are welcome to watch the step-by-step production of the Corvette at the GM Corvette Assembly Plant and see mint classics and prototypes at the National Corvette Museum. The NCM Motorsports Park and Beech Bend Raceway bring all car enthusiasts together. Whether motorsports is your passion, drag racing is your addiction or restoration is your hobby, get your tail end to Kentucky this year and see why we’re geared for hot rods! If you have an obsession for hot rods, check out the Goodguys 5th Nostalgia Nationals, the 14th Annual Holley National Hot Rod Reunion, the Danchuk Tri-Five Nationals and more!
Not only is this town about fast cars; visitors can also explore natural wonders. Kentucky’s only underground boat tour is at Lost River Cave. Only a short 30 minutes away is the world’s longest-known cave system at Mammoth Cave National Park, celebrating its 200th year of cave tours in 2016 along with the NPS Centennial. Adventures above and below ground are always fun for families.
Along with natural wonders, Bowling Green is rich in history. Visitors can view the works of a world-renowned artist at the Downing Museum at Baker Arboretum and learn about trains at the Historic Railpark & Train Museum. Visitors can also walk among restored aircraft and hear about their pilots at the outdoor Aviation Heritage Park.
Rich history leads visitors to the city’s historic and quaint downtown. Around Fountain Square Park and the downtown area sit dozens of shops, restaurants and activities including a stop on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour at Corsair Distillery and a professional minor league baseball team, the BG Hot Rods!
For cave seekers and families to car enthusiasts and history buffs, Bowling Green is geared for fun! VisitBGKY.com
