About Glasgow, Kentucky

For shoppers and antique lovers, there are numerous antique shops in the area.

Also of special interest are the following regionally known attractions:

Mammoth Cave National Park

The Park was established to preserve the cave system, including Mammoth Cave, the scenic river valleys of the Green and Nolin rivers, and a section of south central Kentucky. Beneath the sandstone-capped ridges of Mammoth Cave National Park lies the most extensive known cave system on Earth, with over 350 miles of passageway mapped and surveyed. And yet after 4,000 years of intermittent exploration, the full extent of this water-formed labyrinth remains a mystery. Today, science seeks to plumb the unknown through ongoing mapping, testing, and exploration, with a full understanding of the words of one of the old guides: "The Cave is not soon to give up its last, deepest secret."

*Tours and outdoor recreation at the world's largest known cave system.
