BG to celebrate being Ohio Magazine’s Best Hometown

Ohio Magazine has once again honored BG as a Best Hometown and we invite you to celebrate with us on July 19  from 4:30-6:30 pm at the Simpson Building & Gardens. A chance for our attractions, parks, events, retail, restaurants, venues, lodging and non-profits to shine with table displays, samples, giveaways, coupons and to celebrate why BG is a Best Hometown!

A Best Hometown by Ohio Magazine for the second time in 10 years our vibrant and university community is the reason we continue to get this great honor. Ohio Magazine cited that Bowling Green’s historic downtown, the vibrant college town atmosphere, strong sense of community and shared vision for the future as key reasons for being chosen for the 2017-2018 year. The Simpson Gardens were another reason and the favorite shared by the magazine in both the November and January issues. The selection committee was extremely impressed how the community came together to raise the funding needed to plant and maintain the many different gardens. So, it naturally became a good fit to host the BEST OF celebration there! Ohio Magazine encourages a community to celebrate all year long and that is just what we are doing.
