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.

They have a playground, mining area, fossil displays that were found in the cave and animals to entertain you while waiting for your tour time. Once inside, the tour guide tells you about all the formation and fascinating story of the cave’s discovery. Some of the beautiful formations you will see are the Soda Straw Balcony and The Flowing Stone of Time – just so cool!
