Christmas Events Part 1: Underground Light Extravaganza
The holiday season is in full swing and Christmas is only 24 days away (who’s counting?). The colder weather has certainly made an appearance. This morning I was met by a glittering wonderland as the frost clung to everything in sight and sparkled in the sunrise.
With the Christmas season there is lots to do with family and friends in and around Louisville. We at Family Realty don’t only love real estate Louisville, but love Louisville itself. So over the next few weeks we’ll highlight some great Louisville Christmas activities available this season.
We thought we’d start this series highlighting the most uniquely Louisville Christmas event: Lights under Louisville. Louisville is home to the Mega Cavern, a 4 000 000 Sq Ft former lime stone mine. Mega Cavern has several underground adventures including zip lines and bike trails. But over Christmas it hosts the largest underground light display in the world.
According to their website there are “over 850 lit characters with over 3,000,000 points of light” which you can view from the comfort of your own car as you travel the 17 mile track underground. This 30 or so minute drive is a spectacular light display for the whole family.
Lights under Louisville charges one price for a whole car and is open every night of the week until December 31st. They also offer a few promos and special events on their website. One of them is a dinner at Louisville Zoo nearby and a free VIP pass to the lights.
Part of the Mega Cavern is situated under the Louisville Zoo which is in the Poplar Hills neighborhood. This neighborhood lies alongside two other neighborhoods namely Audubon Park and Strathmoor Village. There is a good amount of green space in these neighborhoods including Creason Park and Audubon Country Club.
