A thriving university town with a progressive population helps drive Bowling Green?s appeal to future Hilltoppers for school and work. As the third largest city in Kentucky and the dining and shopping destination for a dozen surrounding counties, Bowling Green has a wide variety of local restaurants, small businesses, and unique entertainment. Bowling Green is located just 60 miles north of Nashville and 110 miles south of Louisville. At the same time, the getaways around us do not supersede the experience of living in Bowling Green and exploring all the city and county have to offer.
