From your vacation rental in Louisville, you’ll want to head south to visit Mammoth Cave National Park for a day of touring the cave (the world’s longest known cave), hiking and canoeing on the Green River. Paducah, Berea, Bowling Green – so many places to explore and enjoy!
With each day of enjoying family activities in The Bluegrass State, you’ll welcome your return home to rocking chair porches, mountain views or quiet stream settings. Start your day and save on meals with home-brewed coffee and hearty breakfasts from your own convenient kitchen. Then set out for Kentucky’s recreational lakes for a day of swimming, boating and fishing. Rivers cut through the hills and hollows for rafting thrills and riverside fun. With 51 magnificent state parks, you’ll have no shortage of outdoor entertainment. Be sure to visit the Cumberland Falls State Park for hiking or horseback riding. The Appalachians in the East are home to the Daniel Boone National Forest, where outdoor fun runs from world-class golf and the Red River Gorge to Laurel River Lake and the area’s many natural arches.
