On a visit to Texas, I took a three-hour road trip to Carlsbad, New Mexico to add another national park in my list. Carlsbad Caverns was the perfect destination to satisfy my cave fascination minus the rigorous wild cave expedition I did at Organ Caves in West Virginia (that’s another story to tell!).
The Carlsbad Caverns is an amazing place. I was surprised by how visitor-friendly it was and of course, how they maintained and preserved all the stalactites and stalagmites. I felt like I was walking through Batman’s underground wonderland.
Entrance tickets to Carlsbad Caverns is free for kids below 16 years and only $10 for 16 and above. I recommend exploring the cavern at your own pace unless you really want an in-depth cave lecture from a tour guide for an additional fee.

I highly recommend visiting Carlsbad Cavern. It truly was a one of a kind experience!
