There is something special about piling into the car with family and taking in the beauty of the Christmas lights around the local neighborhoods. When you combine the convenience of checking out the lights from your car and millions of lights, the magic of Lights Under Louisville is born!
In Louisville, Kentucky, we are very fortunate to have a wide variety of activities to do, just like lots of other cities. Lights under Louisville is one of my very favorite activities to do with my family! It helps us kick off the season in a festive way.
We have a very unique attraction that is opened year round. It is called the Louisville Mega Cavern. The Louisville Mega Cavern is positioned literally under the zoo and one of the major highways. While you are touring the facility, there are signs that let you know what is right above you. The entire cavern spans of 17 miles; that is a huge territory! The cavern was and still is used for storage for a wide variety of things.

Around Christmas time, there is an attraction that my family makes a point to visit each and every year! It is called Lights Under Louisville and it is an attraction like nothing in town! Load your family into the car and roll down the windows when you get to the cavern so that you can hear the music they have playing. There are thousands and thousands of lights set up taking you through various areas of cavern. Around each turn there are different depictions of fairy tales, scenes with Santa and his elves to name just a few.
