Geared for Local

 

The second generation includes some rare and highly sought after Corvettes, so this itinerary features experiences and items that are locally made and not available just anywhere. Okay, Fruit of the Loom underwear can be bought at home… but not at these prices!

Day 1

Enjoy a locally-owned eatery before witnessing the birth of Corvettes, taking in some breathtaking views, sampling local harvests, and discovering one of our hottest new products.

Stop 1

There’s only one GM Corvette Assembly Plant, and all Corvettes made since 1981 have rolled out of the Bowling Green facility. Start your weekday off with a one-hour tour of the plant to see the step-by-step process.
