Cave of the Mounds

Cave of the Mounds, a National Natural Landmark and one of the Midwest’s most renowned show caves, is already a stunning attraction in its own right. With its otherworldly limestone formations, underground chambers, and subterranean wonders, it’s a fascinating natural treasure throughout the year. 

Light in the Cave is a festive event that combines the cave’s natural beauty with thousands of holiday lights, creating an awe-inspiring and magical experience. The cave’s delicate stalactites and stalagmites glisten like icicles, while festive lights in various colors add a warm and welcoming glow to the underground landscape.

Visitors of all ages can take guided tours that lead them through the cave’s illuminated passageways, showcasing the natural formations that took millions of years to develop. Guides share fascinating insights into the geology, history, and ecology of the cave, adding an educational dimension to the experience.

Madison is such a cool city. We love it around here. We live here too and our vision is to create a platform where real parents share real stories and we can all learn from one another. You will get to know real moms doing life right here in our neighborhoods and find information on a wealth of topics – local summer camps, preschools, swim lessons, shops and boutiques, events and experiences as so much more.
