Bowling Green Itinerary


The 4th generation Corvette needed a bit more time in the oven, so to speak, launching in 1984 after a stalled year of quality and production issues. Of the 44 cars assembled in 1983, only one remains in existence and is displayed at the National Corvette Museum, so this culinary tour features a weekends' worth of local restaurants in Bowling Green, Kentucky that can't be found anywhere else. 

Saturday

Breakfast

Head out to the countryside for an authentic southern breakfast to jump start your visit to Bowling Green. Biscuits, gravy, bacon, eggs, home fries and more sizzle from the flattop and rise in the oven at Boyce General Store while locals chat about current affairs and community happenings. But that's not all... also home of The Pie Queen of BG, you'll definitely want to take a few homemade pies with you for later!
