Consider cave trip to boost mental, physical well-being

Saturday, June 6, is the fourth annual National Caves and Karst Day. None of us imagined that we would be celebrating in this fashion. This is a good time for families to map out their cave visits for later this summer and in the fall.

As of today, Indiana’s caves are now re-opened.

If you’re looking for weekend excursions close to home or planning to travel a little farther, go to to find what’s available in that region.

Spending time in nature has become a welcome escape after weeks of sheltering in place. Many studies report that spending time in nature can boost mental and physical well-being, improve concentration, increase energy, reduce stress and lower blood pressure and heart rates. When paired with exercise, such as hiking to or in a cave, the results are maximized. It’s quality time that a family can spend together, focusing on nature rather than screens.

We hope that you are weathering this storm until we can all begin to resume some of our favorite pastimes. In the meantime, please feel free to reach out to us with any questions about scheduling a visit.
