Bowling Green Itinerary

Every Corvette in the world is currently made in the heart of Bowling Green, KY. Not only do Corvettes roll off the line at the GM Assembly Plant, but they also hold tribute to the history and beauty of these American-made sports cars at the National Corvette Museum. If that wasn’t enough to prove BGKY is a haven for car enthusiasts, you can also feel the speed for yourself as you sit behind the wheel of an all new C8 Corvette as you zoom around the professional racetrack at the NCM Motorsports Park. Here’s a revved up itinerary for a day geared for thrills in Bowling Green:

Bowling Green – The Corvette Capital of Kentucky
