Kentucky Action Park: Cave City, Kentucky

Some of our favorite times on our family vacations have been spent in Kentucky. We love the Cave City area where we've visited several times. There's a big variety of things to do - from exploring caves to visiting Dinosaur World and seeing life size replicas to watching actors stage a gunfight on Guntown Mountain to petting a kangaroo at Kentucky Down Under. It's such a beautiful area, too, and I enjoy just taking in the landscape and enjoying nature.

One spot we have visited twice on our visits in Kentucky Action Park. They've added a lot since our initial visit, but it's the kind of place, where there's something for everyone - horseback riding, cave tours, zip line, alpine slide, go karts, mini golf, arcade games, old thyme photos and bumper boats, which you can tell from the photo below my kids thoroughly enjoyed.

It's a place where you can stop for a few hours to kill some time or you can plan a full day to try it all out. They also have primitive campsites and now have cabins, as well.  Cabin rentals are available starting in March. Horseback riding is available starting in March and additional attractions open later in the season. For more information, visit
