"Fantastic Caverns" Around Springfield Tip by Hosell

Around Springfield, Saint Louis: 4 reviews and 4 photos


Not far from St. Louis,in Springfield another interesting place to see are :
Fantastic Caverns- America's Ride-Through Cave - is a family owned business. It was discovered in 1862 by a farmer - or more precisely, by his dog, who crawled through an entrance. It wasn't until five years later that the first exploration took place: 12 women from Springfield, answering a newspaper ad seeking explorers, ventured into the cave. Their names remain on a cave wall today.

Because the beauty of Fantastic Caverns is vulnerable, the Cave is toured in jeep-drawn trams. Since you ride all of the way through, you experience the magnitude, the stillness, and the splendor of Fantastic Caverns while preserving its natural features.

This is a picture taken inside this beautiful cave.
