One of the largest—if not the largest—sandstone caves in the world, Laurel Caverns opened for business in 1968.
There are a few different ways to experience the caverns. You can take a 60-minute guided tour and see all the highlights with minimal effort. There also are advanced tours, including the two-hour Upper Caving and three-hour Lower Caving jaunts. Both can get a little extreme — you’ll be crawling, climbing, and squeezing your way through very tight passages. If you get claustrophobic (or don’t like to get dirty), these options may not be for you.
It’s worth noting that Laurel Caverns closes in the winter, out of respect for the countless bats that hibernate there. If you’re not a fan, fear not — the bats typically don’t hang around the rest of the year, so you’re not likely to see one while you’re there.
