Texas

Natural Bridge Caverns

Did you know that Texas has 90 mountains reaching altitudes of a mile or more, or that approximately ten percent of Texas is covered in forest, including four national and five state forests? Although famous for vast cattle ranches and oil booms, Texas’ natural wonders inspire travelers when they visit the state. Hiking scenic canyons and dense forests, exploring mysterious caverns or relaxing on undisturbed beaches are just some of the natural wonders to be enjoyed. People have been exploring and admiring these family-friendly and awe-inspiring sites for hundreds and even thousands of years.

Natural Bridge Caverns

Visitors who want to explore Texas “down under” must see Natural Bridge Caverns, named to the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of Interior, recognizing sites that have an important role in preserving cultural history.

Located 13 miles north of San Antonio and named one of America’s “10 great places to get nature on film,” this cave is one of the world’s premiere show caves and largest natural attractions. Visitors can view more than 10,000 different formations in underground chambers with either a guided tour or a self-guided tour on tape. Other award-winning state caverns include The Cave Without a Name and Cascade Caverns in Boerne, as well as Longhorn Caverns and Sonora Caverns.

Only when the area sees great amounts of rainfall do the Caverns fill to create vast, deep underground lakes. The lakes of clean, clear water surround glistening cavern features, providing a spectacular view of the life-sustaining aquifer.
