Bowling Green has hundreds of geocaches hidden in both urban and rural settings. Whether you are visiting and would like a numbers run or to see the interesting sites of the area, be sure to go geocaching in this area.
HUGE indoor/outdoor flea market. The signs say 400 indoor booths, but there were a lot of empty stalls. Still, what was there was fine - like with any flea market, you have to dig thru some trash to find your treasures. Beware of vendors selling outdated food products - I was about to buy a $.75 bag of chocolate Chex Mix, when I noticed it had expired in August 2008! Lots of vendors outside as well - wonderful fresh fruits and vegetables. My treasures this time were:
Large canaloupe - $1
Matchbox Jeep - $1.50
Strap Keeper - $2 (they sell on tv for $9.99!)
carabiner clips - $.75 each
UNO cards - $1
paperback books - $.50 each
My dad bought a Confederate $10 bill for $45 (he's going to get it framed). They also had vendors selling car parts, tools, antiques, handicrafts, toys, furniture... You name it!
Lost River Cave is a wonderful site with great hikes and Buterflies.
There is even a geocache to grab while your there.
The tour to the cave and then in the cave is very well done, and worth it for both beginning
cavers and experts alike. It was a popular Jesse James site, as well as a night club at one point.
Prohibitionists have marched around it, trolleys have encircled it, parades of all types-circus, military, historical, homecoming, Irish, political and patriotic- have taken place around it, scrap drives headquartered here, Civil War soldiers knew this place, hundreds of farm animals have been sold here as well as fine horses, pageants have been held here, veterans were welcomed home here, people have sold and traded every kind of item imaginable here, and buildings here have come and gone. No one familiar with local history can deny that Fountain Square is Bowling Green's touchstone to its past; it is certainly the community's most endearing and enduring landmark.Robert Moore, one of the area's earliest citizens, donated two acres to Warren County for public buildings in 1797. On this site a log courthouse was erected, and shortly thereafter the county added a log jail, a stock and pillory, a log clerk's office and a log markethouse. Around 1813 a new red brick courthouse was erected and crowned with a white cupola.
We rented a houseboat on Cumberland lake. That was great. Two families, plus friends, Sea Doos, Waverunners, a Yamaha Jet-boat, food, fun, and no oldies. It was a great trip, sitting in the hot tub on the roof of our boat as we drove. Sleeping quarters were tight as we were about at the limit. We had to use the jet boat as an ambulance as one friend of my brother cut his foot wide open. Yeah, that was great. He had no feeling in his foot due to recovering from an accident, stepped off the Waverunner onto some sharp thing, and when he got back on, I noted a whole bunch of blood on the foot area. We rushed his back to the mothership, then went out to find the adults. After finding them, we rode on to shore where we jumped in the car to take him to the emergency room. Fun trip, besides that. And even that wasn't so bad. He felt no pain!
Looking for a place to unwind? Chuck Crume Nature Trails is 20 acres of beautiful walking trails in town. The trails are not long, but do intertwine and can be made into as long a walk as you would like.
