Where are we going today?

No-one said adventure had to be ABOVE ground! There are plenty of underground adventures ready to be had across the country, and Cascade Caverns in Texas is one of them!

The way to explore the cavern are their 45 minute to one hour guided tours. These are great so you can really learn all about the caverns, the history, as well as ask plenty of questions!

Make sure you check the times of the tours before you arrive, but don't forget your adventure is underground, so if it's rain, hail or shine, you know you can still have a family adventure!

Did you know that Cascade Caverns are a very comfortable 64 degrees all year round? Perfect to get out of that hot Texas heat if you like! The cavern itself is a living cavern, with pure water still falling on those amazing formations. In fact, they are all constantly changing.

When you take the tour, make sure you look all around you! The stalactites, stalagmites, and various other formations are all waiting for you to explore them. Nature is a wonderful thing!

Don't forget your camera! It's also Texas’ only cavern with a 100 foot waterfall!

Cascade Caverns are located within a 105 acre park, so why not enjoy it before or after the tour. Take a picnic, or enjoy the playgrounds!

There is also a campground on site if you want to extend your stay in Texas a little longer!

A fascinating, educational and unforgettable experience in Texas with the amazing Cascade Caverns!

    The cavern was filled with history and our tour guide was fun. The gift shop had some stuff and all employees were very helpful. It is a quick tour, but you will see stuff you don't see everyday. Nice place!

    This is a definite must see for any amateur speleologists out there or just anyone who appreciates the visual beauty of Nature and Time!

    Easily one of the prettiest show caves in TX, Natural Bridge Caverns starts its tours with a view of its namesake right by the entrance.

This is a definite must see for any amateur speleologists out there or just anyone who appreciates the visual beauty of Nature and Time!

Easily one of the prettiest show caves in TX, Natural Bridge Caverns starts its tours with a view of its namesake right by the entrance. The tour is a little short and our guide was not particularly engaging or overly knowledgable (it sounded like she was reading from the Cave Guide's Discovery Tour Script), but she was really young and honestly, you really don't need a lot of explanation of the absolutely fantastic and gorgeous formations in front of you!

The formations in the cave are just downright spectacular! From chamber to chamber they get progressively more and more breathtaking! The crown jewel is the end of the Discovery Tour when you have a full panorama of the formations from the "observation deck" which creates this sort of layered perspective that is just jaw dropping! One of my fav formations was definitely the King's Throne and the Castle of the White Giants. The petrified bat roosts and rimstone dams are also really cool cave "decorations". And because it is still an active cave, water is dripping everywhere, so it is more than likely you will leave your underground adventure with a "cave kiss", which is always good luck!

Totally worth the money and the drive out there! Also look into combining the cave tour w/a Bracken Bat Flight viewing. You will not regret it!
