If you plan to go to Mammoth Cave National Park...Here are my TIPS:
Take a jacket...the caves are cool, 50 degrees year-round--even in the winter months. Wear comfortable shoes...what you would wear for a walk in the woods.
Buy your tour tickets online ahead of time...on busy weekends, you will be sure to have your space reserved.
Tours range from 1-6 hours and vary in distance and difficulty level. The Mammoth Cave National Park website details every tour and park amenities.
If you are going with children, remind them there are no bathrooms once inside the caves... Keep that in mind too, when planning which tour to take. We did a 2-hour tour this time and worked out great.
Look for wildlife... we saw deer, hawks, and wild turkeys during our short visit.
On our way back from the tour, I spied a grand home...I had a spur of the moment photo shoot-- right there in the front yard of this historic home. I fell in love with the urns planted with conical boxwood, the enormous pillars and the perfectly shaped outdoor lantern lights... swoon... I love old homes and this one was piquing my interest... Oh, how I wish someone would let me inside... I bet it's amazing in there!!
I was absolutely trespassing...I was so enamored, I just clicked away on the camera.
Yes please, I would like one stone fence --to go... Thank you.
