Nature has some AMAZING wonders and surprises, and at Linville Caverns, the whole family can experience one of them!
These amazing caverns are the ONLY show cavern in the entire state! They are located in the High Country region, and is a perfect destination for the anyone in the family - no matter what age!
There is an incredible beauty to be explored - both inside AND outside the mountain! Did you know that the Linville Caverns were actually known to man for centuries? It wasn't until the 1800s that men on a fishing expedition came across fish swimming out of a rock, which led them to a small opening in the mountains.
Well, the rest is history, and now you have a fun activity for the family!
Of course, these caverns were formed over millions and millions of years, so it's a great way for kids to learn all about geology and the marvels of how nature can transform and create the planet to how we know it today.
As you walk around, take your time and look at all the amazing formations that the cavern holds. From stalactites to stalagmites, and some you might not have ever heard of before. Be careful - they are very delicate!
The cavern is always 52 degrees, so no matter what the weather you will know what to expect! So grab those comfortable shoes, and those sweaters, and make sure you are ready for adventure at Linville Caverns!
