Whether you are visiting for the first time or re-visiting memories, you will discover why HOWE CAVERNS is New York State's second most visited natural attraction. The centerpiece of any trip to Howe Caverns is the descent 156 ft. below the Earth's surface where you will enjoy a 90-minute guided tour of the largest show cave in the Northeast. Limestone corridors, cavernous galleries, stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone, formations, serpentine passages and an underground boat ride all await you in our underground world. You will find a variety of other things to do at Howe Caverns Adventure Park including: birthday parties, Howe High Adventure, panning for gems, geode cutting and jewelry making at the Howe Caverns Mining Company, a AAA-rated motel, delicious meals with a spectacular view at affordable prices in our Cafe, delicious homemade fudge and decadent truffles in our Sweet Shop, and gifts and souvenirs for your shopping enjoyment.
