Indian Echo Caverns - Part1

Even though we cancelled our  Virginia beach and Busch Garden  vacation, we managed to  squeeze some time to  bring the kids somewhere so they could enjoy their summer break.  We went on a road trip and visited Hershey Park for a couple of days.  We also managed to  visit one of the  caverns in the nearby town called Indian Echo Caverns.  The Cavern is located in Middletown Road, Hummeltown , PA.
 I am glad that we saw one of the  leaflet in the hotel we were staying at.  Visiting the Indian Echo Cavern was a nice  surprise for our trip since we did not plan on it.  They are open daily including Sundays.
 Pennsylvania is such a luscious  state.  There's farm everywhree even on busy cities, it's beautiful to  drive around.
 The travel from our hotel to the cavern took ten minutes, it was only 4.5 miles from the place stayed at which was a bonus.

My daughter  did not anticipate the cold temperature inside the cave so my son was very kind to lend her his  sweater.
 My kids love  seeing the goat although they were not fond of their smell lol.
  It's nice that they have a little  play area and farm animal area  because it gives kids something to do while waiting for the tour.  
 While kids are playing, adults can shop at their  souvenir area/gift shop.
There were so many  educational tours  when we went there .
Aside from the  playground and picnic areas, you can also do other things like panning for gemstones.  We just busied ourselves taking pics.  What is there to tell if there's no photo to back it up right?  Lol.  I will  continue to post the rest  when I find time so tune in.  There are so many interesting formations of stalactite and stalagmite inside the cavern that I want you to see.

I would love to see those caverns! We really enjoy getting out on the road and exploring, so my family would have a blast at Indian Echo Caverns!

I have always wanted to pan for gems. I think there is a place near our house that does that, but I have never visited there. I would really like to visit this place in Pennsylvania too. It looks really fun.

I can't wait to see the inside of the caverns. We are too far away from there to visit right now, but i will be putting it on the hit list of places to go when we go east.

It sounds like you guys had a lot of fun. I've never been there before. I'd love to take the family.

Joseph James said...

I am part Cherokee so I am always looking to visit all types of Parks and Caverns that celebrate the Indian culture. It looks like everyone had a great time!

Jennifer Van Huss said...

What a great vacation spot! I love the idea of learning about Caverns and Indian Culture. We honeymooned in Pennsylvania and can't wait to go back with the kids! Such a great learning experience!

Thanks for letting us know about the place. The place is lovely and is so green! Good looking kids you have there.

I have visited Pennsylvania often, but I have never visited Indian Echo Caverns, I will have to check it out next time I am there! Did you get to check out Amish Country? I went there once as a teen. I got to check out a cavern while on vacation in Barbados and it was neat! Sorry to hear your Virginia trip got cancelled though!

My girls would love this! We started hiking and ran into a tipi in the middle of our trail. It was pretty cool.

Rebecca Swenor said...

Indian Echo Caverns sounds like an amazing place to bring the kids indeed. It looks like they have a bunch of fun things to see and do. I have not heard of this place before but will have to check it out some day. Thanks for sharing.

That looks fun. I've never been inside a cavern, but my son had been to one when they had their field trip in Tennessee. He was amazed!

Nina Say said...

I hate cancelling plans, but if this is how my trip went I would have been so happy. I'm terrified of roller coasters and love gorgeous places like this filled with history.

I have never been to Pennsylvania before, but it looks beautiful. I also love going on cave tours, so I will have to keep this one in mind in the future.

That would be such a fun place to go. I would love to see the caverns in person.

So fun! You were actually really close to me! I've been talking about taking the kids to Indian Echo Caverns before summer ends, I'll definitely need to now!
