Cave exploration is unlike anything else, and here in Branson, there’s no shortage of underground fun for all skill levels.

1. Marvel Cave
The most popular of the area’s caves, visiting Marvel Cave has been one of the most popular things to do in Branson for over 100 years! The cave’s history goes back much further, though, having been explored by the Spanish in the 1500s, and was known as “Devil’s Den” among Osage Indians before that. Today, the cave remains one of the city’s most popular tourist attractions! Part of the attractions at Silver Dollar City, Marvel Cave is open to tours and features the largest cave entrance in America, the Cathedral Room! According to Silver Dollar City’s website, the cave will take you approximately 500 feet underground. Being physically fit is highly recommended.

3. Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail
The Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail is located in Ridgedale, just minutes from Branson at the Top of the Rock Ozark Heritage Preserve. You might be familiar with Top of the Rock, especially after an enormous sinkhole opened at the golf course. The sinkhole isn’t the only attraction here, though. If you want to get a fascinating look at what lies beneath, take a tour of the Lost Canyon Cave and witness the cave’s waterfalls, stalactites, stalagmites, and grab a drink from from the cave’s lemonade bar (yes, there’s a drink bar built into the cave!)
