Weekend trip to Kentucky/Tennessee next weekend questions

Jump to last reply

We will drive most of the day on Friday. Plan on eating in Memphis Friday night around 5:00pm then drive to Jackson and spend the night there.

On Saturday (this is the day I am not sure what to do) we need to be @ Mammoth Cave by 5:30 for a 6:00pm Lantern Tour of the cave. So, do I want to stop in Nashville and do something there, or do I want to visit Abraham Lincoln Birthplace/Home? I had originally planned on doing Lincoln, but hadn't checked the website in several months and I didn't know that the Log Cabin was closed for renovations. So, is this still something doable? Or, do I want to eat at Loveless Cafe for breakfast in Nashville and see maybe Grand Ole Opry building or perhaps Country Music Hall of Fame or what? Nash Trash tour is already sold out for the day. We will overnight @ the Mammoth Cave Hotel. As a third option, I also considered doing the Lost River Cave boat tour.

On Sunday, my daughter and I will do a 6-7 hour Wild Cave Tour. This tour will end about 4:00pm. We will overnight again at the Mammoth Cave Hotel.

On Monday we will do the Corvette Plant Tour in Bowling Green @8:30AM. Then we will drive home(7-8 hour drive).

Do we want to eat meals totally at the Mammoth Cave Hotel for the 2 or 3 meals while we are there. Or, are we better off going to Cave City?

But the main question is What to do on Saturday? Something in Nashville, Lost River Boat, or Lincoln???
