What Bert Has To Say About Bowling Green Metro Area

Bowling Green, located along I-65 20 miles north of the Tennessee border, has a diverse economic and cultural base. Best known as the city where the Chevrolet Corvette is built, this pleasant, small town is also home to the 15,000 students of Western Kentucky University. Other prominent employers include Holley Performance Products (carburetors) and Fruit of the Loom, and the town is a center for a wide and diverse agricultural region. Downtown is modest and attractive with a classic main street and numerous historic homes and Civil War sites. The outskirts east towards I-65 have grown rapidly and bring some typical “strip” and freeway sprawl.
