Bowling Green Reviews

It's a small town, and you really get to know people. They don't have every convenience there, but they have enough. I particularly enjoy dining at the Bowling Green Diner. The food there is just like eating at home.
Review Bowling Green
It's nothing to special. I live in a very small town with not to many people. It's getting better, but their are still some social issues.
For a small town experience... You'll get it. But other than that nothing here. Just a Walmart and restaurants. But for the most part you are safe.
