      Living In Bowling Green, KY

      When living in Bowling Green I was very amazed by many things there. Every place has its ups and downs but this place has a lot of ups!

      The attractions in Bowling Green had to be some of the best. One of my all-time favorites was the underground boat ride. It is called the lost river cave and valley. The underground cave is so neat that it was featured in the Ripley's Believe It Or Not book. Another cool attraction is the Aviation Heritage Park. This park is there to represent all the past aviators that have lost their lives. One last really cool attraction is the Bowling Green Hot Rods baseball stadium. This is a very affordable family attraction that all with absolutely love. Those are not all the attractions, just a few big ones. The community there holds quite a few events that are very nice. For the most part the area is very community oriented. When it comes to dining there is a little something for everybody. I was very pleased with all the dining options available to me. Also, all of the restaurants are 100% smoke free! There was not a whole lot of nightlife except for a few sports bars. I personally don't need a whole lot of nightlife but if your one of those people who do, you might have to take a drive. When it comes to shopping there is a pretty decent amount of shops. They have a nice mall along with a few outlet stores. There are also some neat little country stores, anybody can enjoy.

      Overall when it comes to living in Bowling Green, it is rather enjoyable. I would recommend living here to almost anybody who doesn't mind a little country. If you are in the area and have time, I would defiantly stop by for a visit!
