The year my husband and I got engaged, he was finishing up a graduate degree at Bowling Green State University — and I was homeless for the summer while I waited to start my own graduate program in Detroit. So we spent a cozy summer in Bowling Green; he got me a used bike so I could explore while he toiled away in the library writing his thesis. (Side note: it was definitely a “cozy” summer, as we lived in a 120 square foot “apartment” with no air conditioning. Oof!) Humble digs aside, I fell in love with this lovely little town, exploring its sidewalk-lined streets, popping into local coffee shops, and daydreaming at community parks. You could easily spend forever in this charming little town, but if all you have is a weekend to explore Bowling Green, Ohio, that’ll do, too.

Have you visited this charming town in northwest Ohio before? A weekend in Bowling Green, Ohio is sure to recharge your batteries and give you a whole new appreciation for our beautiful state, and *all* its lovely little locales.
