7. Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico

Carlsbad Caverns National Park protects 119 known caves, all of which make up a phenomenal underground world. This famous place is truly breathtaking, and it’s likely something you’ll talk about for many years.

Its huge caverns, covered in an astounding number of stalactites and stalagmites, create an underground fantasy land below the Guadalupe Mountains. You can tour the chambers at your own pace or join a ranger-guided walk for an even more immersive experience.

Bats dwell inside the cave, especially during the summer months. Some people may find it creepy, but watching the bats fly is actually one of the best things to do while visiting this famous place.

It’s worth mentioning that there’s a devastating disease called White-Noise Syndrome currently spreading across the country. It doesn’t affect humans, but it’s killing bat populations. To help prevent the spread of this disease, the Carlsbad Caverns National Park staff requests that visitors not wear any clothing or shoes that they’ve worn in another cave.
