Can I explore caves in Texas?
Absolutely, you can explore caves in Texas! Spelunking (also known as “cave exploration”) is a popular hobby in Texas, and for good reason. It’s incredibly fascinating to get a firsthand look at the intriguing processes of the planet, and caving is a great way to do that. There are hundreds of caves in Texas, but only some are open to exploration by the general public. Such places include:
One such place is the Natural Bridge Caverns, near San Antonio
Caverns of Sonora is located on private property, so you’ll need to arrange a tour – but the effort is worth it.
Inner Space Caverns in Georgetown
There are plenty – you just need to know where to look! For more of our favorites, take a look at this article that takes you on a road trip to caves in Texas.
