Mammoth Cave is in the same area as the Corvette museum and worth checking out. Not sure how busy it is now. You can pre book the tour(s) you want ahead of time online and save waiting in line.

Are you wheeling, taking the wife & kids in the summer, doing a romantic weekend with the GF or doing a motorcycle ride with the guys?

The east side is great ( I am originally from Booneville ) . The west side is flat and boring. If your wheeling check out the Hatfield & Mccoy trail system. Burboun trail is cool. Mammoth cave is very nice. Lake Cumberland is the house boat capital of the world. Louisville is a nice big city normal big city things to see and do.

More of a long weekend getaway with the woman.

We were looking at going to Mammoth Cave and also looked into Red River Gorge. No wheelering this time. Louisville is probably a yes.

We'd really like to find good places to do some hiking, bike riding, and adventuring. Best places for those types of things that aren't more than an hour or so into Kentucky??

Looks like rain is a possibility for this weekend, but we won't let that stop us too much.
All good info so far. Thanks, guys.

We did the self guided tour at mammoth cave national park. We had the kids with us, but we hiked around the park more than anything. The self guided caves are nothing challenging at all. Before we had kids, we went on a guided tour that was a bit more interesting, but didn't see anything outside of the caves.

There's a river boat cave tour we considered, but didn't try. We did go race go carts, but nothing fancy.

Kentucky Down Under is a cute little zoo. The kids loved it. Us as adults enjoyed it. You do get to touch a kangaroo. I didn't bother, but I guess they're cute. They have a cave tour of their own that was interesting.

We often stop in Bowling Green going to and from Pensacola. We've gone to the Corvette museum a couple times, mostly for me. There's some dinosaur museum (not the creationist one) that was surprisingly good, but that's more kid oriented.

There seems to be plenty to do, but we haven't been back without kids in over 10 years.

The riverboat cave tour sucks. Avoid it.
Mammoth caves are pretty cool.

Check out the Fort Knox tours. The free samples are worth the wait.

Meh, if you have time its a good way to waste a half hour or so, a little bit of interesting trivia on mammoths and American archaeology, if you're into that sort of thing. they have great swag at the gift shop though.
