one of my most amazing adventures yet, there are so many caverns in the California area. We experienced complete darkness, beautiful images that ones mind can see, and repealing to even a deeper section of the cavern was remarkable

The walking tour through California Caverns is interesting, fun, unforgettable. There are rooms where people used to get married, rooms where city council (or was it county supervisor?) meeting took place long ago. I've taken the tour with friends, with family and by myself and...More

We did the walking tour and it was easy.. it was about 70 degrees down there and 100 outside. My five year old son had no problem walking the stairs. Pictures and videos won't do justice to this place.
