Fully Loaded Weekend
Tired of looking at other models, um, destinations and settled on Bowling Green for your next getaway? SOLD! You're ready for a Fully Loaded Weekend!
Drive into town on Friday to catch a Hot Rods Minor League Baseball game or a performing arts event. Then get an early start Saturday at Beech Bend Amusement Park and Splash Lagoon then beat the heat inside for an afternoon touring our first-class museums. Head underground at Lost River Cave the next morning before taking a Sunday cruise in the countryside, and stick around Monday morning for a cool factory tour at the GM Corvette Assembly Plant if you didn't catch it Friday. Check out the full itinerary below for more details.
Roll into town on a Friday afternoon between April and August and you may catch a Hot Rods Minor League Baseball game, or head downtown on Friday evenings in July and August for free Concerts in the Park.
Not a summer trip or having bad weather? Take in a local performance instead. Bowling Green has two professional and two youth theatre troupes, a symphony, an orchestra, plus talented performing arts students at Western Kentucky University.
Get a good night’s rest because Saturday begins bright and early at Beech Bend Amusement Park & Splash Lagoon, home of the region’s most twisted wooden roller coaster and a great water park featuring a huge wave pool, lazy river and new state-of-the-art cyclone saucer waterslides.
Our museums are a great alternative if it rains on your parade this day… from planes, trains and automobiles to fine art and history, we’ve got you covered with edutainment options.
Sneak in some shopping that afternoon at Fountain Square downtown or head on over to Flea Land for bargains galore. After dinner at one of our locally owned restaurants, why not check out some live music in "Nashville North!"
On Sunday, explore the world below the streets of Bowling Green at Lost River Cave. The gang will learn how Civil War soldiers, bank robbers, prohibitionists, and Native Americans used the cave and valley, then take the state’s only underground boat tour. But don’t stop here… there are eight other public caves in the region. From the beautiful formations of Diamond Caverns to the grandeur of Mammoth Cave, nothing beats the heat on a hot summer day like heading underground for some of nature’s air conditioning!
Kick back down on the farm that afternoon for a sweet treat at Chaney’s Dairy Barn where over 30 flavors of their homemade ice cream are waiting to tempt your taste buds. If fruit is more your flavor, drive up to Jackson’s Orchard for some delicious apples, peaches or berries.
Before hitting the road on Monday, tour the only place in the world where Corvettes are made at the GM Assembly Plant. See step-by-step production of the sleek sports car in this one-million-square-foot factory. Who knows, you may be picked to start one up!
