I would have to say that one of the most exciting places that I have been to in the State is the Grand Canyon Caverns. At first glance, you might find the caverns to look like nothing much at all. I want to know that looks are deceiving, especially in the case of the Grand Canyon Caverns.
You will begin your tour of the caverns by taking a ride in an elevator down 21 stories. This is an amazing ride. Once the elevator doors open you will discover spectacular sights. The tour follows lit paths with handrails, where you will see the remains of a mummified bobcat and marine fossils. There is even a fake giant ground sloth to allow you to witness what kinds of creatures roamed the area 20,000 years ago.
The tour lasts approximately 45 minutes. There are amenities above the ground such as a motel, restaurant, and gift shop.
You can get to the Grand Canyon Caverns from Kingman by taking the old Historic Route 66 east out of town. You will be heading toward Seligman. You will pass by the towns of Valentine, Peach Springs, and Nelson. Before you get to Seligman you should find Grand Canyon Caverns. Look for signs, it is right on Route 66. For more information, you can call 520-422-3223 or 520-422-3224.
