Come out to Cave City, KY and experience some of the country's most extensive and intricate underground caves, featuring stalagmites, stalactites and a subterranean river. The fun is not limited to the underground, however. Cave City features a range of outdoor activities and unique cultural gems as well.
Our Cave City hotels provide convenient access to local attractions, including:
Soar through the trees at 40 miles per hour on the zip lines at Mammoth Cave Adventures. You can also try the Mammoth Cave Drop Tower, which is not for the faint of heart. Jump off a 70-foot tower and experience a virtual free fall! Those who are less daring will enjoy the ladder climb, skybridge or a scenic horseback ride.
Mammoth Cave Canoe & Kayak runs trips inside of Mammoth Cave National Park. You will paddle down the Green River, which actually appears green in color and is one of the most biologically diverse rivers in North America. You are sure to see diverse wildlife on your trip, including turtles, ducks and Great Blue Herons.
Even the least experienced riders will enjoy the Jesse James Riding Stables, one of Kentucky's oldest and largest stables. In addition to horseback riding, the stable features a walking tour of the area.
Dinosaur World is a favorite among kids, as well as kids at heart. It features both fun and educational exhibits showcasing the enormous prehistoric creatures, including more than 150 life-size dinosaurs. Dinosaur-themed merchandise stocks the shelves of the gift shop.
For a 30-minute guided tour through a few rather tight spaces, visit Crystal Onyx Cave, where the tour guides are noted for their knowledge and enthusiasm. A gift shop on the premises features beautiful handmade jewelry.
Big Mike's Rock and Gift Shop has been dubbed "Roadside America at its best." Pick up rocks like the ones you saw while exploring caves. You will love the extensive collection they feature, and prices are very reasonable, too.
