If you only have 24 hours in Blowing Green, Kentucky, what places do you visit?

If you only have 24 hours in Blowing Green Kentucky, what do you visit? You visit the two most popular places in the area. I have a special place in my heart for Corvettes and caves so we chose The National Corvette Museum and Mammoth Cave.

Mammoth Cave

Unfortunately, we have been on a lot of cave tours and were not that impressed with this one. The “Frozen Niagara Tour” cave tour was 90 minutes long with lots of walking. The tour was very informative but it did not have a lot of the cool cave features that we found in Endless Caverns. We enjoyed the museum and the information we learned before our tour. My suggestion is to be at the very front of the line or the very end, then you can ask the Ranger lots of questions.

National Corvette Museum

img_4752National Corvette Museum holds a small place in my heart because I owned a 1969 Corvette. She was black with white coves and a red interior, “Black Beauty”. This was my dream car but sadly we had to leave her behind when we left to travel full-time. We enjoyed seeing the progression of the cars, different models, and how the engines have improved and changed over the years. The girls found a kid’s room where they had a blast playing with the car factory line. It was neat to see the information about the large hole that sadly swallowed several antique cars. The girls learned about sinkholes at the Mammoth Dig site in Hot Spring, SD. We even got to watch a couple take possession of a beautiful car they had ordered over a year ago. They do the delivery right in the museum showroom.
