A Nashville + Kentucky Labor Day Getaway

**I apologize that I have not posted anything in a while, but now I am back! I will be posting at least twice a month.**

I wanted to tell you all about our trip a few months ago to Nashville & Kentucky. J and I usually find a place to visit over Labor Day weekend close to Kansas City. Last year, we did a weekend trip to Omaha. This year, J had a few extra vacation days, giving us the chance to go somewhere farther away. After much back-and-forth about where to go, we settled on two places: Nashville, TN and Mammoth Cave, KY. Our goal was to find a place to hike and camp since I had never been camping  Luckily for us, Mammoth cave is only an hour from Nashville, so we were able to have the best of both worlds for a few days!

If you’re looking for a getaway that combines delicious food, cave exploration, and a great music scene, then take a glance at our 4 (and half)-day Itinerary.

A few transportation notes: We flew into Nashville, rented a car, drove to Mammoth Cave, and then flew back out of Nashville.
