Cave Without a Name Boerne
Where are we going today?
Some people say that this underground adventure is THE most beautiful in Texas, so why not take the family and decide for yourself!
Cave Without A Name has been giving families underground adventures since all the way back in 1939 - that's a lot of family fun that's been had!
Less than 40 miles from downtown San Antonio, and 12 miles from Boerne, these caverns can be found i the heart of the rolling hills of Texas Hill Country, so why not make a day of it, get out of the city and really enjoy what nature has created - above AND below ground!
Cave Without A Name is a living, natural cavern. Deep inside, you will see all the spectacular formations that have appeared over millions of years. Stalactites, stalagmites, cave drapery, flowstones and soda straws will surround you. Kids will love trying to spot all the different types of formations in the cave!
There are 6 major rooms that you will experience on your guided tour. Don't you worry about the weather either, as the caverns are always 65 degrees, so you will know what to expect! Easy walkways and brilliant lighting make it a great family tour lasting an hour.
The tour will take you 126 steps deep (about 80 feet!) below the surface. You will see then why it's been designated a National Natural Landmark, as well as a member of the National Cave Association!
If you really wanted to make a family trip of it, there is camping and RV facilities nearby, where you can enjoy hiking trails and wildlife too. A great family experience in Texas!
The cavern might be without a name, but your experience certainly can be called "Family Texas Fun!"

Very nice folks and they are correct, these caves are prettier than Cascade. I remember some of the sights from my childhood. When we went (Mar 2014) we had the entire campground to ourselves. Each cave has it's own charm. I will definitely visit again with my friends. Great local get away adventure.

So very much better than I expected. The guide gave us a long talk at the top about the goat who fell in the hole and discovered it. The lecture took so long, I thought he was just burning up time cuz there was nothing much down there, but, oh, wow, this is probably the most beautiful cave we have been to in Texas.

Awesome experience, our group was small - just our family - and the guide was great, took pictures for us and was great with our 6 year old and 10 month old. The cave has a lot of great formations!

Our tour guide Mike was outstanding and the Cave itself was spectacular. Well worth the time and cost.
