Blackberry Farm to Bowling Green
After a stay at Blackberry Farm we're heading to Bowling Green KY. Any suggestions on where to stop along the way. We have a day to spend. Is the Jack Daniels distillery and Miss Mary Bobo's worth the detour? Anything wonderful in Bowling Green? Not expecting BB Farm type food, just something local and interesting. Not at all familiar with the area- all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

My family and I (husband, mother - in - law, 12 yr old son) enjoyed our tour of the distillery and our day in Lynchburg. Also the lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's was enjoyed by all; however in the spirit of full disclosure - it was 22 years ago and though I would not like them to - some things change.
