Mammoth Cave, Cave City, and Horse Cave, Kentucky - Cave City KY Weekend Getaway

Preview: The best reason to head to Kentucky’s “Cave Country” is to experience the wonder of Mammoth Cave, said to be the longest known cave system in the world. If you have kids in tow, there are many different attractions reminiscent of the 1950s that the little ones will get a kick out of. This part of Kentucky is on Central Standard Time. Horse Cave, the most northern of the three cities in the Mammoth Cave region, is partially situated over Hidden River Cave, whose underground river was once the source of the town’s drinking water. This chapter from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of Nashville. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.

Review: Superb. Returned not long ago for a brief visit, enjoyed the historical trail that led to cemetery of free blacks, including the original tour provider.
