Derby City

Kentucky’s largest city, Louisville, is best known as the home of the Kentucky Derby.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Louisville Mega Cavern and Kentucky Derby Museum. Step out of Louisville to go to Lexington and see Kentucky Horse Park, which is approximately 1h 30 min away. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, sample the fine beverages at Copper & Kings American Brandy Distillery, gain some tasty knowledge on a distillery tour, and try to win big at Churchill Downs.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and more tourist information, go to the Louisville trip site.

Lexington to Louisville is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus. In June, daytime highs in Louisville are 86°F, while nighttime lows are 67°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) to allow time to drive to Cave City.

Originally intended as a resort city to serve the Mammoth Cave attraction, Cave City has taken on a life of its own.
Bring the kids along to Mammoth Cave and National Corvette Museum. Change things up with a short trip to Lost River Cave in Bowling Green (about 42 minutes away). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Dinosaur World, get to know the resident critters at Kentucky Down Under Adventure Zoo, hike along Fat Man's Misery, and Head underground at Diamond Caverns.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Cave City trip builder website.

You can drive from Louisville to Cave City in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of bus and car; or do a combination of bus and taxi. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Central Standard Time, which is usually a -1 hour difference. In June, daily temperatures in Cave City can reach 84°F, while at night they dip to 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Tue) early enough to drive back home.
