Definitely check out Mammoth Caves if you're in the area. Had a couple hours to kill on my way into Louisville so I decided to stop in and just do the broad main attraction tour. Wish I had time to explore more.and do more guided tours because the first one just wet my whistle a little bit. Wind through the darkness of an underground wonder. Speechless really. If you are claustrophobic take a precaution. The tour last about and hour and thirty minutes and the only way to get back out is follow your tour guide or you'll be stuck underground until you perish!! Nothing dangerous at all, just great fun.

Bring a sweatshirt. Its awfully cold down there!

We did the Historic tour the day before with guides Matthew and Charlie. This was a pretty interesting trip but if you want to see some cool formations the New Entrance tour is the one to see awesome Frozen Niagara and more. Charlie was our guide this trip and he was nice and gave our group plenty of time and gave up good info.

We went to Mammoth Cave in a group. They have very well organized tours which will give you a great idea about the cave
There are also a number of places nearby where you can do some great outdoor activities like Zip Line, go carts, bumper cars , alpine slides, horse back riding.
Overall, it's a very good place to go for a couple of days with friends and family

This national park in KY has several options when it comes to cave tours from short easy cave tours to going actually spelunking tours where you can't help but get dirty. I will definitely return to this park

mammoth cave national park is a must see destination for those interested in nature,as well as as geology...all kinds of interesting things abound as you take a tour (several different tours are offered,including lantern tours) lead by knowledgable park rangers...well worth a trip down to old Kentucky,as several other great attractions are in the general vicinity as well.
