Take a half-mile tour past awe-inspiring limestone formations, deep caverns, stalactites, and stalagmites; you may even catch a glimpse of the endangered Cascade Caverns salamander. Watch for the impressive 100-foot waterfall spilling into a black pool at the end of the tour.

We visited another cave last year near New Braunfels, Native Caverns I think, and were blown away by the operation. It was like Disney World and a little pricey as well but well put together. I did get a little cave fatigue after the hundredth stalactite. So we thought we'd try what seemed like a more Ma & Pop tourist deal this time just to get our Americana on, and to still have enough energy to visit the historic little town of Berne near the cave.
What a different experience it was. It was truly hokey, but in just the way we were looking for. And it was almost half the price as the other place. But the Cave itself was really just as good, although smaller. It was just a very different kind of cave. I kinda felt like a scientist more at Cascade Cave. I'll definitely go back to both after I try some more caves in the area and hope I have another great experience again at a completely different cave. I think I've got 3 or 4 to go!
