These placements garner the attention of millions of readers that utilize these outlets for travel inspiration.
“We are so excited any time Bowling Green is mentioned in national media outlets and we work hard to spotlight our local tourism businesses and industry,” said Nora Bryant, communications director at the Bowling Green Area CVB. “The positive attention our destination receives encourages those readers to book their next trip to Bowling Green, KY and it also adds to resident pride! We are so proud of our city, our locals and our businesses, we definitely enjoy showing Bowling Green off.”
