Oh… THAT Bowling Green!

Yep. That’s us. The BG in the great state of O-H-I-O! The funky little college town up north. The small city with the great big ideas. And we’re ready to share everything we have to offer with the world.

Located along the I-75 corridor in Northwestern Ohio, Bowling Green is full of personality, places to go and plenty of opportunities for all. Visit us and grab a meal at our legendary eateries, or see a show at BGSU. Get a little green and explore the first wind farm in Ohio. Walk the trails. Get sporty. Swing a club… this town is green for miles. Come and stay awhile. We’re ready. We’re welcoming by proclamation. And we are here to serve big thinkers of all kinds
