The Niagara Cave in Harmony is rated one of the “Top Ten” rated caves in the United States and is only a mile from the Minnesota-Iowa border in southern Minnesota’s Bluff Country.
It was discovered in 1924 by a pig farmer and has since become a family owned and operated tourist attraction.
It features stalactites, stalagmites, calcite flowstone (this geology-obsessed girls dream), fossils, gem mining, a 60 ft. underground waterfall, an underground stream you can walk over, a subterranean wedding chapel and even mini golfing outside.
It was unbelievable.
Imagine walking through the narrow passageways of the Grand Canyon,
stopping to see things like the Elephant’s Head,
even a wishing well
and even Paul Bunyan’s bed!
My favorite part?
The echo chamber – where you can pound on your upper torso and actually hear the hollow of your chest cavity.
If it’s not on your bucket list yet, it should be.
