Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the Bowling Green area.
The Barren River, which snakes through Warren County before joining with the Green River to the north, first attracted a band of explorers from Bowling Green, Virginia, called the “long hunters,” who established the settlement of McFadden’s Station along its north bank among the dense forests and rolling hills, around the time of the American Revolution. The carved signatures of these first residents are still visible in the area’s beech trees. Robert Moore, one of these early settlers, built his home next to a natural spring on the south bank, around which the present city grew. There is some speculation whether Bowling Green was named after the original explorers’ home town, or after the founder’s custom of rolling wooden balls on his lawn with friends each morning. Now the home of Western Kentucky University, whose national reputation attracts students from all over the county, Bowling Green also makes a perfect home base from which to visit the region’s many natural attractions. Mammoth Cave National Park is just a short drive northeast of Bowling Green, and offers camping, canoeing and horseback riding, along with an amusement park and a network of natural caves and rock formations. With gentle year round climate, and distinct but mild seasons, Bowling Green is still as attractive to new settlers as it was to the original founders. As the metropolitan capital of south central Kentucky, Bowling Green also offers the full spectrum of lodging options, from full-service hotels to the more intimate bed and breakfast inns that provide a wealth of local information, as well as close encounters with the local culture and cuisine.
