Best Time to Visit Bowling Green

There's a saying in Kentucky that if you don't like the weather, just wait five will change! In Bowling Green, it's not unusual to have a gorgeous sunny morning followed by wind and rain in the afternoon that leads to a humid and hazy evening. But along with these fluctuations come the best weather changes of all, the seasons. A very distinct spring, summer, fall and winter each year equals vibrant buds, lush greenery, beautiful foliage, and crisp dormancy. Whether your visit is in April or October, you are in for a colorful welcome, and the cool caves are excellent escapes from the summer heat.
