Cave City ©
Originally intended as a resort city to serve the Mammoth Cave attraction, Cave City has taken on a life of its own.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Historic RailPark and Train Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Jim Beam American Stillhouse (in Clermont), Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park (in Hodgenville) and Brown-Pusey House (in Elizabethtown). There's still lots to do: brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Maker's Mark, immerse yourself in nature at Sgt. Alvin C. York State Historic Park, contemplate the long history of Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, and explore the fascinating underground world of Onyx Cave.

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Cave City day trip website .
