1. Howe Caverns
Location: Howes Cave, NY
Howe Caverns is one of my favorite places to visit in Upstate New York. If you are looking to explore a 6 million year old cave nearly 160 feet below the surface, Howe Caverns offers several unique tours starting with the basic hour and a half guided tour, allowing you to see the stalagmite that forms on the cavern walls and travel via boat on an underground waterway. If you’d like to feel more like an old time explorer, you can take the tour by lantern or flashlight. Should neither of these quell your sense of adventure, you can actually take a spelunking tour (they provide all the gear) led by experienced cave explorers. Above-ground you can expel any energy you have left on their zip line courses or realistic mountain climbing trails. Find out more here.
