Business and Economy

The Wigwam Village Motel is one of Cave City's unique attractionsCave City's main industry is tourism, thanks to its proximity to Mammoth Cave National Park. A number of motels and restaurants are located at the interchange of Interstate 65 and state routes 70 and 90, which cater to tourist visiting the area or just passing through. The city operates a small convention center that is popular with church groups and other family-related organizations, mainly due to the area's lack of crime and abundance of tourist attractions. Cave City has long been a gateway to Mammoth Cave; in the era of passenger rail travel, trains of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad would discharge tourists there, who would then be shuttled to the cave.

Aside from tourism, the city's economy is largely agricultural.

Political Cave City is governed by a mayor and an elected city council. The current mayor (as of 2005) is Bob Hunt, owner of a local funeral home, who has held the office for more than a quarter century. Hunt recently attracted attention by casting the tie-breaking vote against an ordinance considered by the council, which would have banned the use of tobacco in public places. (The region around Cave City is one of the largest tobacco-producing areas in the world.)
