Here’s Kentucky’s Top Outdoor Attraction… And You’ll Definitely Want To Do It

The temps are steadily rising at 80+ degrees in the Bluegrass State, which means summer is basically here. With the sun’s warming rays comes a growing desire to get out and participate in outside entertainment. There are some great outdoor attractions in Kentucky, so it can be hard to choose a favorite.We have the Kentucky Horse Park, a variety of manmade lakes and rolling rivers, and miles upon miles of beautiful forests.

This is about the top attraction in Kentucky though, and that made it a little easier. The Cumberland Falls moonbow is renowned, Louisville has the Derby, and Bardstown has bourbon, but they all stand in the shadows compared to one spot.

When it comes to the most visitors, all hands raise towards Mammoth Cave National Park as the top outside attraction in Kentucky.

Mammoth Cave National Park is renowned for its cave systems, but this land has so much more to offer. That is why it has earned its spot as the top outdoor attraction in Kentucky, according to Kentucky Parks Tourism. You can read more about what this national park has to offer, including fees, hours of operation, and directions, here.

What do you like about Mammoth Cave? If not Mammoth Cave, what do you think should get more recognition?

I am somewhat a cliche'. I grew up running around barefoot on a farm in Kentucky. I love writing, art, sunshine, all animals and my incredibly patient husband, who tolerates my "crazy animal lady" side.
