We're ready when you give travel the GREEN light!

Geared for fun... when you're ready!

We can't wait to get our tourism motors running on all cylinders again, and most of our attractions and activities have reopened with careful plans when the time is right for a visit. The health and safety of Bowling Green/Warren County residents and those traveling to our community continue to be of extreme importance to us. We are continuing to monitor the state, federal and international response to the COVID-19/Coronavirus and following their guidelines to help keep our community and travelers feel safe and informed. 

*As of May 3, 2021, Warren County is an ORANGE county (accelerated spread > 10 - 25 per 100K), so availability of certain events and activities could still be affected. Kentucky's positivity rate is currently 3.5% this week with more than 1.8 million Kentuckians receiving at least the 1st dose of vaccine. All persons in Kentucky age 16 and older are eligible to receive the vaccine as of April 5.

The following minimum requirements for all entities are still in effect in Kentucky:

  • ​Physical Distancing
  • Facial Coverings (recently lifted for outdoor events with less than 1,000 people)
  • Hand Washing and Sanitizing
  • Ventilation
  • Common Areas (limit use)
  • Sanitation (high-contact surfaces)
  • Employers- Daily health checks & Telework

Restaurants & Bars

  • Indoor dining restricted to 60% capacity
  • Delivery, to go strongly urged
  • Outdoor service, weather permitted, is allowed at 100% capacity
  • Food & Beverage service must end no later than 11pm

Indoor Venues, Event Spaces, or Theatres

  • Events with 1,000 or fewer persons in a single room or space are limited to the lesser of 60% capacity or the maximum number of individuals that permits appropriate physical distancing.
  • Events with greater than 1,000 persons in a single room or space are limited to the lesser of 50% capacity or the maximum attendance that permits appropriate physical distancing.

Currently in Kentucky, face masks are required in all indoor, public settings where six feet of distance from non-household members is not easily kept at all times, in addition to outdoor gatherings of more than 1,000 people. Travel into Kentucky is not restricted; however, CDC guidance still recommends all non-essential travel be avoided for unvaccinated adults.

Restaurants were allowed to reopen for in-person dining and beverage service in May 2020 (and again Dec. 14 after a second, temporary closure) with reduced capacity (currently 60% indoors) and other safety measures in place. Patrons must be seated at tables or booths (no bar service), and food and drink service will stop at restaurants and bars (including wineries) at 11pm with the facilities closing by midnight. 

All of our locally-owned restaurants that have reopened continue to offer curbside and carryout options including alcohol. Also, providers such as Take-Out Waiter, Uber Eats, and GrubHub are available in the area. 

Non-essential retail shops were allowed to reopen May 20, 2020. Like our restaurants, several of our locally-owned shops continue to offer curbside service, local delivery and shipping.

*For businesses or drivers making local deliveries, the Planning Commission has updated its City and County maps and are available digitally by reaching out to Tonya Colley, tonya.colley@bgky.org.

The main Bowling Green Visitor Information Center (352 Three Springs Rd.) is open to walk-in and call-in visitors M-F from 8am to 5pm. Additionally, local brochures are accessible on the front porch rack including Kentucky Visitors Guides, state highway maps, hotel coupons, and area driving tours.

All hotels in Bowling Green are open and following the CDC Guidelines as well as corporate (when applicable) cleaning standards.

Indoors, only small gatherings and events that are closely following the guidelines are available at this time, but more outdoor events are being announced daily. We are regularly updating the Events calendar of our website as information becomes available. If you need to look at future dates, please contact us as our office is uniquely positioned to assist event organizers looking to reschedule due to our relationships with industry partners.

Several Bowling Green attractions and businesses continue to stream events, behind-the-scenes videos, yoga sessions, and even online car shows to keep us entertained at home. Read this 'i love bg' Blog post with all the details, or check out the Virtual BGKY section on this page for quick links.

When the time is right, we look forward to welcoming our Corvette enthusiasts, adventure-seeking families, bucket-listers, hot rodders, WKU hopefuls and business travelers back to town. Until then, we encourage everyone to follow CDC guidelines on staying safe during this situation. 

Be Safe. Keep the motors running.

Attraction, Recreation and Hospitality Updates
