Are you looking for a special way to celebrate Valentine's Day? Several Bowling Green attractions, businesses and organizations want to help you make the most of the holiday, with or without Cupid! Keep reading for a roundup of options, and then explore other things to do, places to stay, and good eats for a fabulous Valentine's weekend in Bowling Green.
The Historic RailPark & Train Museum's annual Romance at the RailPark returns Feb. 12-14. Guests will enjoy dinner catered by Cambridge Market, a BGKY favorite, on one of this nonprofit attraction's railcars. Seating options range from dinner for two on the Towering Pine Car in a private roomette to up to six people in a private dining room on the Presidential Car.
There will be a cash bar hosted by Alvaton's Reid's Livery Winery, and a package upgrade is available to include appetizers and roses at your table. With live music in the lobby, a poetry reading with the Fountain Square Players and a movie — Valentine's Day — screening in the museum's private theater, this is a perfectly vintage date night.
For sports fans or those in search of more of a family affair, the Bowling Green Hot Rods will offer a Valentine's Day Brunch on February 14. Email Eliott Stahl by Feb. 10 for reservations to enjoy special dishes like a grilled banana bread sandwich or KY Eggs Benedict in the Reinhart Club at the Bowling Green Ballpark.
If it's just the two of you, consider upgrading your brunch and have an intimate meal in one of the private suites as you dream of packed stadiums again one day. (Hang on, we'll get there!)
The BG Hot Rods also have a great ticket promotion if you need a gift idea— the Sweetheart Pack includes eight undated ticket vouchers and a choice of Hot Rods Teddy bear, while the Love Birds Pack includes eight ticket vouchers, your choice of Teddy bear and a $20 gift certificate that can be used in the Hot Rods Body Shop or concession stands.

For an "only in Bowling Green" experience this Valentine's Day, The National Corvette Museum is hosting two meals with limited seatings spaced over several time slots: the Sweetheart Soiree dinner on Feb. 13 and Toast to Love Valentine's Day Brunch on Feb. 14.
Both events feature menus by NCM's chef, Kelvin Williams, and the museum's spacious Boulevard allows for ample distancing. Seatings of two, four and six are available with upgrades including a sweet treat from Riley's Bakery or flowers. To register, call Bryce at (270) 777-4506 by 5pm February 8. Indulge your sweetheart even more with a surprise Corvette lap at the Motorsports Park Valentine's weekend!
If you're not quite ready for indoor activities but still crave Valentine's Day fun, head outdoors for Bowling Green Parks & Recreation's Sweethearts Challenge from February 11-14.
Along with several downtown partners, BGPR has put together an adventure in and around downtown Bowling Green with both a family version — complete with a storybook trail — and a couples version available. Text "SweetheartsBG" to 47177 for all the details, including special photo opportunities and discounts for hot drinks and sweets from partner businesses along the route.
What about Galentine's Day, a holiday popularized on the TV show Parks & Recreation to celebrate the gal pals in your life on February 13? Be Happy Yoga & Salt Cave has you covered with a Galentine's Day Yoga class followed by a wine tasting at Preservation Tasting Room & Bottle Shop.
The studio is also hosting Valentine's Day Partner Yoga on the holiday itself that is open to all types of partners — romantic couples, family or good friends.
