Grand Caverns is the United States' oldest show cave, having been in business since 1806. The cave is 3.78 miles long and features numerous speleothems, including an unusual number of unusually high-quality shield formations. According to Wikipedia, "It is also replete with stalactites, stalagmites, columns (where stalactites and stalagmites meet), draperies and other flowstone formations. The most stately room, "Cathedral Hall", is 280 feet long and over 70 feet (21 m) high. It is one of the largest rooms of any cavern in the Eastern United States. Other sights include "Bridal Veil", "Stonewall Jackson's Horse", the "Tapestry Room", and "Dante's Inferno"."
