Indian Echo Caverns (Hummelstown, PA)

This is the first of several posts on fun outings we've gone on this summer.  There will be a few more "travel" posts in the next couple days and then I'll be back to sharing some projects and crafts.

A few weeks ago, we planned an end-of-summer getaway to Hershey Park.  We weren't going to go into the amusement park until the evening, so I wanted to find a little something else to do in the area that the kids would enjoy.  I came across Indian Echo Caverns in my internet wanderings and the kids were excited to go into a real cave again (we went to Luray Caverns in Virginia a couple years ago and they LOVED it!)

While Indian Echo Caverns is not nearly as big as Luray, we still really enjoyed our underground adventure.  When you purchase your tickets, you're put into a group of about 20 people led by a tour guide.  The walking tours depart about every 10 minutes or so and last about 45 minutes.  The tour guide we had was very entertaining and pointed out a lot of interesting cave formations and facts about the cave.  The temperature inside the cave stays at 52 degrees year round, so I packed lightweight jackets for the kids.  Above-ground, there's a large gift shop, small playground and petting zoo, and a gem mining area.

While I don't think the caverns would be worth a special trip to the area, I think they're a really interesting place to spend an hour or so if you're planning a visit to Hershey/Harrisburg.

  9. Hi indian

  10. Likewise with most natural caverns, the passage range isn't particularly intriguing or lovely. In any case, as the visit proceeds through the caverns, the genuine excellence of Indian Echo is self-evident. I particularly appreciated the North Passage which drove back to a restricted room known as the marriage Chapel. By and large, I had an extraordinary time at Indian Echo Caverns. I truly miss my Assignment Assistance since he made an extraordinary showing with regards to clarifying the cave’s features and tossed in many clearly practiced, yet at the same time interesting, jokes en route.
