The canyons, cacti, and thorny bushes of the southern New Mexico desert hide one of the U.S.'s great subterranean geological wonders, Carlsbad Caverns National Park.
Step out of the city life by going to Big Room and Carlsbad Caverns Natural Entrance Tour. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Carlsbad Caverns National Park: Guadalupe Mountains National Park (in Salt Flat) and Guadalupe Peak (in Guadalupe Mountains National Park). There's still lots to do: explore the fascinating underground world of King's Palace, take in the dramatic natural features at Lion's Tail, and explore the activities along Rattlesnake Springs.
