Fountain Square Park

Speaking of shopping, Fountain Square Park is the place to do it if you live in Bowling Green. As part of some major revitalization efforts from the Downtown Redevelopment Authority, this heart of downtown since 1789 has seen a huge resurgence as a place for commerce and retail shopping. The public park itself at the heart of all this new construction still retains its look and charm much like it was in the early 1800s, but if you glance around you’ll see modern-day stores dotting the faces of the old facades, such as Ace Hardware, Verizon Wireless, and Ben Franklin.

Golf Courses Galore

Bowling Green might have part of its name from a sport of a different kind, but there is definitely one main attraction when it comes to local recreation, which is golf. With seven prime golf courses, all with scenic views of the rolling green hills in the backdrop and a killer ninth hole. CrossWinds is probably the most popular, with some of the largest bunkers in Kentucky, and holes that will challenge professionals as well as cater to the more inexperienced golfer. So, grab your clubs and call in sick, especially if it is a nice day outside.
