Bowling Green - Kentucky's third-largest city

Learn More about Bowling Green, Ky

The tourism scene in Bowling Green, the home of Corvette, is so much more than just fast cars! A thriving university town with a progressive population helps drive Bowling Green’s ability to entertain. One visit will explain why Bowling Green is "Geared for fun!"

As the third-largest and fastest-growing city in Kentucky as well as the dining and shopping mecca for a dozen surrounding counties, we're brimming with locally-owned restaurant and splurging (shopping!) options. The first city in Kentucky to be named a Dozen Distinctive Destination by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, we show off our past through numerous historic districts and restored landmarks.

Bowling Green is bustling with a diverse economy and population, award-winning schools, affordable housing, and big-city amenities. Being centrally located on I-65 affords visitors and residents easy access to Nashville, TN (60 miles) and Louisville, KY (110 miles) for anything not available here including nationally-ranked healthcare and international airports.

Oh, and did we mention every Corvette made since 1981 has been made right here in Bowling Green?!?

First-class attractions that tell our stories, natural wonders that inspire exploration, and neighboring communities that invite you in - they are all right here. Top it all off with friendly folks who understand the value of community and who enjoy sharing it with others, and you have one great destination.

Take a test-drive of Bowling Green attractions with our Things To Do section, or if you're ready to sign the dotted line, request a Visitors Guide to help you plan and navigate once here. Or if you need to pop the hood, there's more information about the city of Bowling Green here including facts, history and accomplishments, or head to our About Bowling Green page to get more of a feel for the town.
