The second day (Wednesday) of our mini vacation in Austin is the most exciting day because it’s the Fresh Beat Band’s concert to be held in downtown. Since the concert is in the evening and we have traveled this far, we decided to visit a tourist attraction. My dear husband mentioned about a cave that his family visited when he was a little boy.
We looked at Inner Space Cavern online. It’s located in Georgetown, Texas about 27 miles from Downtown Austin. After lunch at IHOP, we decided to go to Georgetown. I’ve never seen a cave before so I was excited about the idea of getting a tour into the cave.
Anything related to Science interests me. Geology, for example, is an interesting branch of Science where scientists study and share their knowledge about the Earth and rocks. Inner Space Cavern is a perfect educational tour destination. We saw a few groups of students touring the cave. When our tour guide name Billy showed up, the journey underground began. As you know, Inner Space Cavern is an underground cave. It’s estimated about 100 million years old.
It’s warm in the cave. But there’s a ventilation so oxygen can get in. My DD had fun exploring. We saw lots of rock formations in the cave. Every section in the cave has a name. I forgot all of them. Hahaha! I’m sorry. We even saw a little bat. Two of my favorites in the cave are the area where the core drill took place and the clear waters. I thought those are cool. As soon as we’re done touring, we couldn’t wait to gasp cool air outside.
Scientists discovered and gathered fossils and bones of extinct animals from the cave too. It’s truly amazing. My husband, darling daughter, and I enjoyed our exploration.
When you visit Texas, don’t forget to explore Inner Space Cavern.
