Welcome to
Bowling Green, Kentucky!

Bowling Green is a thriving university town with a progressive and diverse population. Kentucky's third-largest city, Bowling Green combines the convenience and community of a small town with the culture and innovation found in larger cities.

Even in recent difficult financial times, Bowling Green continues to thrive economically and culturally due to its diverse economy, major university, award-winning schools, affordable housing, low crime rate, and surrounding natural beauty and resources.

According to Forbes, Bowling Green ranks as the #12 small town in America for a career. Its cost of living is 11% lower than the national average, and the average single-family home costs $117,000. Bowling Green is conveniently located on I-65 only 65 miles north of downtown Nashville, TN, and its additional urban amenities.

Bowling Green has a tremendous local artistic and cultural scene, with numerous local restaurants, businesses, farmers markets, and bars. The city hosts major annual music festivals, is home to multiple local theatre troupes, and recently opened the 80,000 square foot Southern Kentucky Performing Arts Center for nationally touring performances.

WKU is located next to downtown Bowling Green, where you will find a vibrant collection of local businesses and restaurants that are centered on the historic southern-style square. The city has many outdoor recreational opportunities including 19 parks and Lost River Cave, plus Bowling Green is only 26 miles from Mammoth Cave National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
