I’m really excited to interview Sandra Wilson, Horse Cave/Hart County Tourism Executive Director, about Horse Cave, Kentucky. Sandra’s tips for the best things to do in Horse Cave are awesome because she grew up nearby and stayed here because it’s rural but not remote. She gets to meet visitors from all over the world while promoting the caves, attractions, and people of Hart County.
