Cave City

Trip Planner USA  /  Kentucky  /  Cave City
(3.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews for top 10 attractions)
Things to do: museums, nature, theme parks
Originally intended as a resort city to serve the Mammoth Cave attraction, Cave City has taken on a life of its own. Visitors seek out the city looking for adventure in the region’s caves or above ground with rock climbing or canoeing. The agricultural town is known for its throwback accommodations--at one site, guests sleep in reconstructed wigwams with all the modern amenities. The town was once in a dry county, until 2005 when alcohol licenses became legal for establishments that serve food. Our United States holiday planner allows you to plan your trip to Cave City and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay

Aside from theme hotels, such as the Wigwam Village Motel, there are also economy lodgings. Because the town was designed as a resort area, there are a large number of hotels relative to the town's population. Many of these accept walk-in guests.
