In December, a devastating, unexpected, 220 mph tornado broke through the town of Bowling Green, Kentucky, resulting in great destruction to the community and causing the worst tornado-related death toll in Kentucky history. The community is resilient and continuing to heal, but looks forward to tourism to help bring the joy back to the charming destination.
Travelers can join the rebuilding efforts by signing up to participate in community projects like distributing donations of relief supplies to local families or helping clean and rebuild the damaged land during their visit.
Throughout the past couple months, local volunteers and visitors came together to put in work to rebuild. Local minister Clay Mullins brought plenty of volunteers from near and far to clear trees and debris from houses and roads. The local school district transformed buses into emergency vehicles. Recently, a group of travelers stepped in to relieve local volunteers so they could return to their families and jobs. Other volunteers served meals to hundreds of power line mutual aid workers, visiting from multiple states to help restore lost power.
Located an hour north of Nashville, Bowling Green is a perfect all-American road trip destination, with many attractions and must-see spots still intact. Make sure to embark on an underground cave excursion at Lost River Cave and visit the National Corvette Museum, where all the Corvettes in the world are produced.
