When looking to escape the heat anytime of the year in Texas, our guests are always wondering about is there to do and not be in a building or in the sun. Exploring caves is a great way to escape the heat as the temperature in the caves is always cooler, so much so, some folks carry a jacket or a long sleeve shirt! Our area has several caves and great natural areas to explore here are a few.
Cascade Caverns is one of oldest tourist attractions in Boerne. It is
known as a "living cave", meaning it is still growing and developing.
Stalagmites and stalactites grow slowly over thousands of years with many
colors from all the minerals present in the water. An under ground
waterfall? They do exist and there is one here! Be sure to call for
reservations 830-755-8080. This is a short 25 miles from Walnut Canyon Cabins.
