711 Mammoth Cave Road
Cave City, KY
Just 10 miles from Mammoth Cave National Park, Dinosaur World in Cave City is a great place to stop and play while traveling I-65. While walking (or probably running!) along the well-groomed paths, kids come face-to-face with life-sized dinosaurs complete with displays with their names, era, etc. Says parent reviewer Kristy of Appleton, WI, They not only have life-size dinos along paths in the woods, but also a fossil dig area, playground, museum, and picnic areas. We loved it¦it was cool to stand next to the dinos! (There’s also a Dino World in Plant City, FL and Glen Rose, TX.)
