Visit Bowling Green

Things to Do in BG:

Lost River Cave

Tucked away in the city of Bowling Green lies a natural wonder, a river that gets lost as it flows underground surrounded by over 60 acres of wooded trails and activities just waiting to be explored

National Corvette Museum

This home for America’s Sports Car features over 70 Corvettes showcased in periodic settings. See mint classics, prototypes, rare finds and racing champs.

NCM Motorsports Park

Conveniently located off I-65 exit 28 and just minutes from the National Corvette Museum, the NCM Motorsports Park offer activities for novice drivers all the way to highly skilled racers – both on four wheels or two. There are even activities for those with no experience and no sports car to call their own!

Beech Bend Park & Splash Lagoon

Amusement & Waterpark for all ages located 10 minutes from campus. The hottest spot in town each summer! Sure, there may be more thrilling rides and waterslides at other parks in the southeast region, but none are as affordable, clean, and friendly as the family-owned Beech Bend Amusement Park & Splash Lagoon.

Chaney’s Dairy Barn

Rolling farmlands, Jersey cows and the best ice cream in Kentucky, according to USA Today, are only the beginning at Chaney's. Take a self-guided farm tour then settle in for lunch or dinner and enjoy a full array of favorites with homemade soup, hot sandwiches and desserts. Choose from a wide selection of Kentucky made products in the gift shop.

Historic Railpark and Train Museum

Long before interstates, people visiting Bowling Green arrived at the L&N Passenger Depot constructed from Warren County limestone. This 1925 structure has been restored and revived to house a two-story self-guided museum where visitors can learn the history of the tracks by asking questions of a "real Railroader" through interactive galleries.

Vertical Excape Climbing Center

Reach new heights at Vertical eXcape Climbing Center! Over 10,000 square feet of bouldering, top roping, & lead climbing with heights up to 30 feet.

Mammoth Cave National Park

As the world’s longest-known cave system with over 400 known miles of passageways, this natural wonder and World Heritage Site should be on everyone’s list of must-have experiences.
