The untroubled Everly Brothers once sang of a magical corner of America: “Kentucky sunshine makes the heart unfold. It warms the body, and I know it touches the soul.” Not every town has a song about it, but Bowling Green is certainly a special sort of place, that may just tug at your own heart strings.
Kentucky's third-largest city is the quintessential Americana you’re looking for when you’re looking to connect to your roots. It is the home of Corvette, a land of emerald green fields and white picket fences—more symbolic than necessary, as the neighbors are as friendly as they come. Enjoy a taste of the country lifestyle (and refreshing peach tea) with Bowling Green hotels from Travelocity.
When you awaken at hotels near Bowling Green, KY, do not be surprised to find more song lyrics floating through your head: “The fields down in Bowling Green have the softest grass I've ever seen.” There are plenty of opportunities for you to experience these bucolic pastures for yourself, but the best is 200-acre Hobson Grove Park. Explore the historic Hobson House, where you can practically hear the shouts of Confederate soldiers filling orders for munitions during the Civil War. On the rolling fairways of the park’s golf course, you won’t need to use your imagination to hear the whistle of clubs and take in scents of freshly cut grass.
Another great American pastime awaits 120 miles north in Louisville: the contagious revelry only found on the baseball diamond. From behind the wheel of one of Travelocity’s rental cars in Bowling Green, steer your way through the green hills of the countryside until you come to rest at Louisville Slugger Field. Root, root, root for the home team, then retire to one of our Louisville hotels to prepare for an evening of dinner and dancing.
Long, relaxing days spent trading tales over refreshing libations and evenings of gaiety on the baseball field will transport you back to simpler times, as will Travelocity’s amazing deals on hotels in Bowling Green, KY. Find your best match, then get a head start on relaxation with a nice cold glass of tea. You deserve it.
