Ride an Underground Tram This January
There’s an entire world of discovery sitting right under the city of Louisville. The city sits on top of limestone caves, the same rock that gave birth to the bourbon industry in the state because of the way it naturally filters water. This January, you can see some of this underground world and take a Tram Ride in the Louisville Mega Cavern, way beneath the surface of the city.
Head to the Louisville Mega Cavern to take an underground ride below the city. You’ll travel through about 17 miles of underground caves and you’ll learn about the history and the unique geology that the city was built on.
It doesn’t matter what’s happening up there, on the surface of the ground. In the Mega Cavern, it’s 58 to 60 degrees year-round. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy a ride through this fascinating underground world. This is an ideal experience for people with small children, elderly people or those who don’t want to hike through a cave in the dark. There’s also a wheelchair train available for those with challenges.
A Mega Cavern expert will guide the tour as you undertake your adventure. The ride lasts a little over an hour. You’ll get to see many cool underground formations and features during this tour. Find the Mega Cavern at 1841 Taylor Avenue. That’s not too far from Deer Park, a quirky Highlands neighborhood with a ton of personality.
