The three more reknowned are Onyx Cave, Mystic Caverns, and Cosmic Caves. They are all within 50 miles ofEureka Springs. Caves run in the limestone from mid Missouri down to this area, and beyond. Onyx is six miles from town, and it is a smaller cave with way too many tourists abusing the environment since 1893 when it opened. It is not worth much effort to show up. Cosmic is heavily promoted since it is in between Branson and Eureka Springs, near Berryville. Price to enter is $14, and that is steep. Onyx is just past the Passion Play area on its own road, off Hwy 62 going east. Mystic CAverns is maybe the more famous due to its promotion in Branson, Missouri tourism. It costs $15, and hours are generally 9-5 daily. This cave has more color than others and has been giving tours since 1928. It is south of Harrison 8 miles off Hwy 7, and 40 miles east of Eureka Springs.
