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!
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.
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.
Next, wind your way up to the highest elevation in Warren County where over 7,000 trees welcome visitors at Jackson's Orchard. Perfect for those seasonal getaways, try and time your visit around one of their annual peach, apple or pumpkin festivals.
Travel from the rocky outcroppings and vistas of northern Warren County to the gently rolling landscapes at the southern end for your next stop. Here, you'll be charmed by this small-farm winery's rustic setting while sampling award-winning flavors.
Take in an afternoon scenic drive or even a nap before heading out for the evening with your appetite. One of BG's most popular new restaurants is also the producer of our hottest craft beer. On most nights, you'll see another of our great local commodities here.... talented musicians!
Today, you'll engage with some of our local farmers and craftspeople, see more works of art by our talented residents, cross a distillery off your Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tour passport, and shop for some new garments. This day should be planned for a Tuesday or Saturday.
Bowling Green boasts three Farmers Markets (one open year-round!) and there is no better place to get a true taste of the fabric of our community! Visit one or more to pick up unique handmade items, fresh meat, produce and eggs if you're preparing a meal while here, or some seasonal flowers to brighten your room.
After getting to know the locals, head to the heart of town for more locally-crafted items. These two shops surrounding Fountain Square Park are perfect stops to find one-of-a-kind gifts and souvenirs.
The next stop has quickly become one of BG's more popular attractions, and visitors to Kentucky traveling the Kentucky Bourbon Trail mark it as a must-see Craft Tour stop. Tour the production facility before sampling their spirits and purchasing a bottle to take home.
Wrap up your BG "locally-crafted" experience with a trip to the region's only outlet store featuring popular brands you know and trust that just so happen to have their corporate headquarters and distribution center here.
