Geared for Local
Bowling Green Itinerary
The second generation Corvette includes some rare and highly sought after Corvettes, so this itinerary features unique experiences and items that are locally made in Bowling Green, Kentucky and not available just anywhere. Okay, Fruit of the Loom underwear can be bought at home… but not at these prices!
Enjoy a locally-owned eatery, witness the birth of Corvettes, take in some breathtaking views, and sample local harvests.
There’s only one GM Corvette Assembly Plant, and all Corvettes made since 1981 have rolled out of the Bowling Green facility. PUBLIC TOURS ARE TEMPORARILY SUSPENDED, so include this activity on your next trip or put the plans in idle gear. It will be well worth the wait to see this step-by-step process!

Take in an afternoon scenic drive or even a nap before heading out for the evening with your appetite. For this meal, we recommend a true Bowling Green original — Rafferty's. The concept can be enjoyed in 13 other locations in the south now, but it all started right here in BGKY. Be sure to save room for dessert because the Brookie is ah-mazing! Visitors also enjoy comparable quality and service at this restaurant group's other concepts — Montana Grille and Double Dogs.
