INNER SPACE CAVERN9:03:00 AM
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.

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.
