As you explore all that Texas has to offer, a road trip within your vacation can bring you to some of our more exciting natural attractions, including the Natural Bridge Caverns found in San Antonio, which is just under 80 miles from your I Love Dripping Springs sanctuary. These caverns, named for the natural arch that greets you at the entrance of the cave, are the largest commercial ones in the state and offer an incredible glimpse into the underworld life. Located at 26495 Natural Bridge Caverns Road in San Antonio, they were established as a tourist attraction just a day before America’s birthday in 1964 and have become a must-see experience for everyone who visits our great state.
Choose Your Tour in the Natural bridge caverns
Travelers have their own idea as to what is fascinating and what is not, and unlike many caverns throughout the US, the Natural Bridge Caverns allow you to choose a tour that matches your interests. Choose the Discovery Tour, where lighting enhances the experience, or the Hidden Passages Tour that takes visitors through the mysterious and hidden regions of the caverns. Their Adventure Tour is not for the faint of heart as you squeeze through tight passages, belly crawl through spaces that don’t allow for standing upright and realize anew that playing in the mud and dirt can be an absolutely amazing experience! There are no handrails or lighting in this tour that introduces guests to the joys of spelunking and promises to be the most fun you have had in years. Speaking of fun, there is just as much to enjoy above ground, as this family-owned business also offers a Zip Rails & Rope Course called Twisted Trails, where visitors can fly through the sky on ziplines or test their balance skills on rope lines. The AMAZEn’ Ranch Roundup features a Texas-sized maze that spreads out over 5000 square feet, and Discovery Village Mining Company will give your kiddos gem and mineral fever as they pan for treasures that appear in the sluice troughs, treasures that include rose quartz and amethyst and fossils and arrowheads. And because they realize that most adventures are more enjoyable when “prizes” are involved, the Discovery Village shops allow shoppers to find more treasures to call their own at the caverns at Natural Bridge; Big Daddy Sweets, Treats, and Brews is bound to be your favorite discovery in Discovery Village!
