Caverns, and stalagmites, and stalactites, oh my!

An awesome adventure is waiting for you an hour away from Columbus. Known as “America’s most colorful Caverns,” Ohio Caverns are the largest in the state.

There are over two miles of surveyed passageways that range in depth from 30 feet to 103 feet. The caverns are open year round and the temperature is always a comfortable 54 degrees.

If the weather is nice when you plan your visit, you can enjoy a picnic at the park above the caverns, which has a playground, picnic shelters, and restrooms. You can also visit the gift shop, where you can buy souvenirs, rocks, and fossils.

Although they offer two tours in the summer session, the winter tour hits all the highlights of the summer tours, plus a section that isn’t viewed during the warmer months! The Winter Tour is available daily until April 30, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and costs $19 for adults, $10 for kids 5-12, and free of charge for kids 4 and under.
