OT: Bowling Green, KY...?

  • So I recently found out I am being transferred to Bowling Green for work... So... Anyone from that area? Know any good places to go, live and eat? I've only been there twice (2 interviews) and obviously haven't had much time to really check out the city.

    I am coming from 10+ years in Auburn, and in my few trips I can tell it's got the college town feel, which is nice. But need some places to go that aren't 'college' bars, as I am 30 now.

    Anyway, any help would be appreciated and anyone who lives around the area and want's someone to hang out with for a while and show the BG ropes, let me know. TIA.

    -Stephen

  • I am envious. If there are two places I could choose to live, Auburn and Bowling Green, are my two choices. I am 48 and have never lived there myself but my entire family on my mom's side is there. I spent many summers as a kid there on my grandparent's farm and still often wonder what it would take to get there myself. Unfortunately I can't help you out much on the restaurants or where to live but I will email my cousins and get their input. Good luck with the new job.

  • A good friend goes up there annually for the BUICK Nationals (Drag Racing) and he rants on and on about the Dill pickle Chips at a place called "Toots".
    I hear about it every year.

  • I live about 90 minutes north of BG in Louisville. You'll be within driving distance (2hrs) of both Nashville and Louisville. So some nice cities to go see concerts in, sporting events, etc. My coworker's daughter lived there for quite some time and taught at WKU. So at least you can go see some good basketball! And can watch Petrino coach a bit of football. toot

    I'll do some digging around and see if I can find out the more desirable areas to live in for ya.

  • AUFully, it is some beautiful country up there. Rolling hills and a lake near by (though haven't been to the lake, yet). I hope and imagine that I will enjoy my time there... I'll be there at least two years, if not more. I'm glad to know you have fond memories of BG, though.

    Haha. I have heard of "Toots" funny enough. I've been looking on Urban Spoon for places and saw that one... I'm kind of worried about what'll happen if I eat there, though! I would appreciate it, please feel free to PM me if you get some good suggestions. Thanks.

  • I've got a buddy of mine who grew up in Louisville (he's even already taught me how to say "Louisville" correct... Like your swallowing it...). I knew about Nashville in my trips up there already. My wife is heartbroken that there isn't a Loft clothing store in BG and she'll have to drive to Nashville to go shopping.

    My wife is also looking for a job now at WKU, so I have a feeling we'll be going to several WKU sporting events; never mind I'm working for Russell Athletic/Fruit of the Loom, so I know we'll have plenty of free WKU tickets I'm sure. Funny enough, we were up there for an interview when Petrino was announced as the HC at WKU; and they had the after-party at the Hilton we were staying at. I was worried because my wife is a tiny blonde; but I didn't see any motorcycles outside and I figured we were safe.

    I would appreciate it. Looking for a small apartment now, until our house in Auburn sells. So if anyone knows of anyone looking for a 3br/2ba house behind Kroger off Glenn, let me know. Going to have some awesome, major renovations here soon.

  • The lake you're referring to is Nolin Lake. It is stunning there. You'll also be just a few short hours from Land Between the Lakes. A strip of land (gorgeous country) that rests between Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake (both beautiful lakes and great for fishing). Nolin Lake State Park is where I go camping a lot of times. The Green River is great if you enjoy canoeing or kayaking.
