Inner Space Cavern

While in Georgetown a few weeks ago, we decided to take a tour through the Inner Space Caverns. The cavern was discovered in 1963 while construction workers were drilling in order to determine if they could build a highway. One of the workers volunteered to be lowered down in the hole to see what was actually down there. Then after just 3 years of excavating it was opened to the public.

They have a playground, mining area, fossil displays that were found in the cave and animals to entertain you while waiting for your tour time. Once inside, the tour guide tells you about all the formation and fascinating story of the cave’s discovery. Some of the beautiful formations you will see are the Soda Straw Balcony and The Flowing Stone of Time – just so cool!

The original hole that was drilled which led to the discovery of the cavern.

This was Carson's first time in a cave and he loved it! We purchased a spelunker hat in the gift shop for him to wear while on the tour, which he ended up wearing it for rest of the day. What kid wouldn't want to wear a hat with a light on it?! We opted for the adventure tour that lasted about an hour and is the perfect amount of time for a kid.  But the hidden passages or wild cave tour is offered if you are looking for more of an adventure.  

This was such fun family experience and I highly recommend visiting if you are in the Austin area.

  5. I haven't been brave enough to take my son in a cave yet. I grew up near Mammoth Cave, KY, and have been to many different caves. My son is a bit of a thrill seeker and I'm terrified that he would try to run off. Maybe if I could bribe him with one of those hats, though.....

    1. He will love it! I think he will be too busy being in awe of it to run off:)
