  • National Corvette Museum

  • Flealand - KY's Largest Indoor Flea...

    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 Beware of vendors selling outdated food products - I was about to buy a $.75 bag of chocolate Chex Mix, when I noticed it had...

  • Walking from the motel

    I'm not a big fan of Cracker Barrel, but if we didn't want to get back in the car and drive, we had a choice of only Waffle House or Cracker Barrel. It was quite crowded so I sat in the rocker by the fireplace while Bob waited for a table. They also have a somewhat tacky store in the same building as the restaurant, that's probably the "Old Country...

  • Terrible Customer Service

    For what it is worth, I visited this restaurant several weeks ago with five other guests and had a poor experience. The waitress dropped a glass of ice tea on the table, shattering the glass and getting glass and tea on several folks at the table. I ended up paying the bill (for over $300) and frankly expected some sort of an acknowledgment (maybe...

    There is a lot of good eating in Bowling Green. Rumor has it that there are more restaurants per person than anywhere else in the United States. While we feature all of the major chains, if you get off the main drag (Scottsville Rd., aka Hwy. 231) there are some great local places to eat. Our favorite is the Brickyard Cafe, owned by two Bosnians...

  • Yummm, fried pickles!

    This restaurant was sooo good! I'm pretty sure it was called Toots...althought now that I think of it..it might have been Tootsies. Well, regardless, it is either or. :) But the food is very fried and very good. If it is your first time there, they even give you free fried pickles! Very nice staff with very fun accents!

Bowling Green Local Customs

  • Cookie_Keith's Profile Photo

    by Cookie_Keith Written Apr 4, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In southern Kentucky, it is the custom to come to a complete stop when a funeral procession is in progress. Its a sign of respect for the dead. It use to be the custom through Kentucky but it is waning especially in the big cities.
