Natural Bridge Caverns are Just One Fun Attraction in Texas

As we set out on our San Antonio road trip, we checked the route we would be taking for some stops along the way. Having been to the Natural Bridge Caverns when I was pregnant with Princess, now 6 years old, we knew that we wanted to take the kids there on this trip.

Eventually, other areas of the caverns were prepared for visitors and you can now rappel down onto a 160-foot well shaft for further observation of the caverns amazing underground world.
