This is one of the most beautiful and easily accessible caves in the US. Kentucky Caverns was discovered in 1799, and opened to public tours in 1922. Tours of Kentucky Caverns are scheduled throughout the day and no prior reservations are necessary. The tour is approximately 45 minutes. This is an active cave: when it rains, the water drips down through the ground and into the cave continually creating new formations! There are many different formations to behold in the cave, such as stalagmites and stalactites, cave popcorn and cave cauliflower. Unsure what cave popcorn or cave cauliflower are? Your interpreter will be happy to explain.
