Inner Space Cavern If you are visiting Austin during the heat of the Summer with the kids, this is a great way to escape the heat and see a very cool cavern. This living cavern (meaning it continues to grow and develop) is estimated to be 100-million years old, and it is just awesome, a truly great place for the kids to visit. Not so much the toddlers obviously, but the teenagers and for sure those of enquisitive minds. Depending on the kid's age, they may show a little resistence going into the cavern, but be assured that the guides are well versed with elleviating the fears of the children. The guides are excellent. To learn more about the Inner Space Cavern, please visit our PARKS AND RECREATION page.
