My family loves the Mammoth Cave/Cave City area. Granted, Cave City is a bustling, high class town, but we always have fun there. I recommend staying at Jellystone Campground in a Savannah cabin. We had a great time there. Be sure to visit Kentucky Down Under, and take the short cave tour there. It is beautiful. Mammoth Cave National Park is fantastic. The tours are beautiful. Take a ride on the Miss Green River if you can.
