Field Notes – Things to do in Bowling Green, KY

We were in Bowling Green, KY, for a few days in the middle of September and enjoyed our stay.  Bowling Green is the third-largest city in Kentucky (after Louisville and Lexington) and is located in the south central part of the state about an hour north of Nashville, TN.  The town was established in 1798 by pioneer settlers from Virginia and became a steamboat and railroad hub through the 1800’s and 1900’s.
