There’s one thing everyone in your family can agree on: going on vacation for spring break. Vacations are a time to kick back and relax or explore something new. While fun and exciting, they can also be expensive and take a lot of planning. Staycations are the perfect opportunity to make a family getaway without going too far while still making memories and spending quality time together. So whether you are looking to save money or just want to explore your hometown, here are four reasons why our caverns make the perfect staycation!
Close to Home
Staycations are great opportunities to visit places in your area that you’ve always wanted to visit but never had the time. Desoto Caverns is only 36 miles southeast from Birmingham on Highway 280 and less than two hours from metro Atlanta, making it a great distance for a day trip and making traveling with children easier. Spend several hours with us at the park and get away from your normal routine at home.
Fun For All Ages
Our cave tours will take you into the depths of Alabama history, the campgrounds and picnic areas provide space to hang out with family and friends, and the landscaping boasts waterfalls, rivers and streams. Our 20+ "wacky" attractions in the Family Fun Park are popular with every age, including attractions like our three-quarter acre Lost Trail Maze, Panning for Gemstones, and Wacky Water Golf. Our water attractions, including the Water Balloon Battle, DeSoto’s Paddle Boats, and more, are open April through September.
Treat Yourself To Something New
Many times, vacations are planned around the meals you’ll eat. Our Cave Cafe has a large selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, and other tasty meals, and a variety of delicious cookies, pastries, and other sweet treats that you’ll want to try for yourself. We’re also proud to serve Principio Coffee and Caveman Nitro Coffee (for those parents who need some extra energy to keep up with their children), hot chocolate, and other flavorful drinks.
Spend A Night Under The Stars
For those looking for an outdoor getaway, our campground is complete with amenities such as free wireless internet and full hookups, right beside a pavilion with bathrooms, showers, washers, and dryers. Enjoy the tranquility of the wooded campsite, a pond, and shaded picnic areas, all just a short walk away from DeSoto Caverns Family Fun Park.
If you are staying at home this spring break, Desoto Caverns offers a wide variety of activities for the whole family to enjoy. Start planning your trip today by purchasing your tickets online!
