Most People Have No Idea This Unique Tunnel In Texas Exists
Most tunnels nowadays are ones you drive through on highways. Still pretty neat, but nothing compares to old-fashioned, underground, dark and scary tunnels. We actually have a few in Texas, but this one in Fredericksburg is especially interesting. It’s the product of many long and hard days of manual labor to carve the gigantic hole in the earth that would serve as a railroad passageway. The transport of goods allowed many towns to prosper, so it’s safe to say that our state as a whole might not be where it is today without this tunnel. See it for yourself below.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

Here’s a video of the bats emerging so you can see it for yourself. I must say, no matter how creepy it may be, it’s a pretty spectacular sight.
