Cavetastic Trip, part 1

Standard

This Spring Break our path took us to the bluegrass state. It is not a hopping Spring Break location, but is worthy of a trip.
Taking advantage of off season rates, we rented a cabin at Jellystone Mammoth Resort. Our cabin contained all the amenities of home in a camp experience.

To meet the youngest obsession with dinosaurs, our first stop included Dinosaur World Cave City. Each enjoyed hunting for fossils, the museum, but especially liked the meandering prehistoric walk. Through this is experience, our son discovered “long necks” were his dinosaur of choice. If you do not have a dinosaur fanatic, the price tag may not be worth it.

Next stop, Mammoth Cave National Park. Little did we know that getting there an hour early to buy tickets would be an epic failure. Apparently reserving tickets online or showing up before the gates open is the best way. We did secure tickets for the Mammoth Cave Discovery tour, a self guided tour. It turned out to be a great cave introduction for the kids and a nice leisurely walk. M, a history nut, enjoyed reading about War of 1812 and how soldiers used the cave.
