“You go on vacation, you see zip lines. And Louisville is no different. Except here, the best ones are underground… in a giant cavern. Take a two-and-a-half hour tour through the man-made cavern, which contains more than 17 miles of underground passageways. It's surely a new way to experience the "best view in town."”
