Discovered in 1963 by the Texas Highway Department, Inner Space Cavern is said to have been hidden for 10,000 years. It’s one of the best preserved caves in Texas according to its website and one of the few where you will find prehistoric remains.

With over 5 miles of passages to explore in a comfortable 72 degrees, it is the second largest cave in Texas. For months, the only way into the cave was through a two-foot-wide hole know as the Discovery Hole, a hole drilled through 33.5 feet of limestone bedrock.
