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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

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.
