1. Mystery Cave in Preston, MN

This place has been on my Minnesota bucket list for years! I just haven't found the perfect time to make the hour and a half drive to Preston.

Minnesota's longest known cave, Mystery Cave, is located within the perimeters of  Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park. From stalactites, stalagmites, wonderous underground pools, and interconnecting passages, Mystery Cave will leave you in awe.

Currently, tours are running from 10 am to 4 pm Thursdays through Mondays until Labor Day.

Starting September 7th, tours will be offered Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

3. Soudan Underground Mine in Soudan, MN

Now, this one isn't technically a cave, but it is still astonishing. My family and I visited a few summers ago and had a fantastic time exploring Minnesota's first iron ore mine. The tour guides were exceptionally knowledgeable about the old mine operations. 

Mine tours run until October 3rd.
