Planes, Trains & Corvettes

Featuring the Historic Railpark and the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, KY!

National Corvette Museum

Day 1: Travel south to Bowling Green, KY for two days of exploring modes of transportation from the past and present.  You will stop in Glendale, KY along the way for lunch on your own at the Depot, a local favorite serving a delicious southern style menu and voted one of the Top 10 Best Restaurants in the Kentucky.  After lunch, you will have some free time to explore the unique shops in Historic Glendale where time seems to slow down a bit as history, antiques and country crafts are all within an easy stroll.  Later this afternoon, continue on to Bowling Green.  You will stop at the Aviation Heritage Park (weather permitting), where 5 aircraft currently reside.  Its mission is to recognize and celebrate the many South Central Kentucky men and women who have contributed to American Aviation since man first took flight in the early 1900s to the recent shuttle missions into space.  One of the first pilots to fly in combat claimed ties to Bowling Green, as did a World War I flying ace, a pioneer instructor pilot, a Vietnam war hero, Commanders of the famed Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels, the Commander/Pilot of “Marine One” (the presidential helicopter unit) and the Mission Commander for the space shuttle Atlantis.  Dinner will be included this evening at a local restaurant.  (D) Hampton Inn & Suites

 

Day 2: Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before checking out and departing for the Historic Railpark and Train Museum for a guided tour of the museum and railcars.  The museum is located inside the former Louisville & Nashville Railroad Depot, built in 1925. Behind the museum lies 450 feet of track displaying an E8 Engine, a Railroad Post Office Car, a 1949 Pullman diner, the Towering Pine (a 1953 Pullman Sleeper), the 353 Presidential Office Car and a Chessie Class C-27 caboose.

  

After your tour, head to the National Corvette Museum for an included BBQ luncheon and a self-guided tour of the museum.  America’s Sports Car… an exciting legend produced only in Bowling Green, Kentucky. The Museum features over 80 Corvettes in periodic settings, including mint classics, one-of-a-kind prototypes and modern-day wonders of engineering and design. Test your knowledge at interactive trivia kiosks, and don’t miss the chance to try a Corvette on for size in the lobby where there is a 2015 Stingray waiting for you.  (B, L)
