A lot of the stops on the motorway are all at ground level, be it that you have to climb up the mountain or not. Yet, there is something special in Stanton, Missouri that will definitely enchant you and make sure you will stop at their attraction.
The city is home to the Maramec Caverns, a beautiful natural underground cave, which stretches on multiple levels. The natural wonder has been opened to tourists since 1933 and the myth goes that it has been a hideout for Jesse James and his crew back in the day.
You can get a full experience by walking through the cave, but you have to be well prepared: the full tour takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes, on a well-lit path that stretches for about 1.25 miles. It is not that much to walk, but due to the nature of the caves, you have to make sure you bring a hoodie or warm jacket with you so you don’t get cold, especially if you are visiting during summer.
