Florida Caverns

Many parts of Florida contain caverns and the best place to explore a cavern is at Florida Caverns State Park, one of Florida’s National State Parks. While each cavern has its own unique qualities, all Florida caverns are dazzling with formations of limestone stalactites, stalagmites, soda straws, flowstones, and draperies. Florida Caverns is the only official site for exploring caverns that are above water level. 

The Florida Caverns are the only above ground cavern in all of Florida accessible to tourists - and for the only cave in Florida, they are absolutely amazing. The park itself is massive and contains caves, beautifully diverse trails, and even a small yet deep spring that is available to swim in. 

Did you know that caverns are pretty rare in the state of Florida? If you're in the area, this is the place to check out! Walking tours are available every day of the year except Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Caverns are a great way to spend a hot day because when you go under ground, it gets cooler. You'll see stalactites, stalagmites, flowstones, and draperies while exploring the Florida Caverns. The cave passageways were actually enlarged by hand in the 1930s by workers so it was easier for visitors to stand rather than hunch down while they walked through.
