Explore Georgetown's Inner Space Cavern This Summer

Georgetown Caverns

There's a lot to explore in Georgetown, TX, a small city about 25 minutes north of Austin. Georgetown offers sweeping Texas Hill Country scenery, picturesque lagoons along the San Gabriel River, and a downtown district that has been called the "Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas."

But Georgetown's most enticing landscape may be deep underground. Join us as we explore the unique world of Inner Space Cavern, one of Texas' largest cave systems, located just minutes from these Georgetown homes for sale

A Hidden World

Like many cave systems, the undergrown labyrinth now known as Inner Space Cavern was discovered by accident. It was actually the Texas Highway Department that stumbled upon the previously-unknown cave system in 1963 while constructing an I-35 overpass. 

During the process of regulation core testing, the construction crew inadvertently drilled into the cave eight times. Unable to find any other access to what they knew they had found, they drilled a 2-foot wide hole down 33.5 feet through the limestone bedrock, creating the first usable passage into the caves. 

Exploring 'Inner Space'

Through that original borehole, dubbed the 'Discovery Hole,' scientists began exploring this brand-new cave system. A larger hole was subsequently created, but to this day, no natural entrance to Inner Space Cavern has ever been found. 

We now know that all-natural entryways to Inner Space Cavern have been closed for about 14,000 years. But we are far from the only ones to have ever seen the caves, as Ice Age fossils of saber-toothed tiger, wooly mammoth, and giant sloth found within attest to. 

At present, several miles of passageways have been explored, some of which are now open to the public. But the majority of Inner Space Cavern's unknown depths remain unexplored. Still, the small portion that we've been able to access has given us some truly amazing discoveries. 

See for Yourself

Roughly 1.2 miles of Inner Space Cavern is open to the public and has been since 1966. Portions that are publicly accessible include winding passages and large, open 'rooms' adorned with striking cave formations. Drapery columns and a large room known as the Ice Cream Parlor are highlights of the cave. 

A variety of tours are available. These range from simple walking tours to more advanced wild cave spelunking tours. Check out the official Inner Space Cavern website to learn more about the various options available to the public. 

The basic cave tour is known as the Adventure Tour. It lasts about an hour and includes parts of the cave that are flat, fully illuminated, and open enough that one can comfortably walk upright. The slightly longer Hidden Passages Tour is a bit more physically demanding, taking visitors through newly-opened passages that are at times narrower and less developed. Wear closed-toe shoes and expect some uneven ground.

The most challenging and rewarding tour is the Wild Cave Tour. Lasting up to 4 hours, this tour involves hiking, climbing, crawling, and squeezing through tight spots but rewards visitors with an opportunity to experience parts of Inner Space Cavern that few ever see.

How to Create the Perfect Reading Spot

Reading at Home

Getting lost in a good book is a great hobby many people enjoy! Creating a peaceful space in our homes that is free of distraction where you can curl up with a good book is essential to our mental health and an excellent way to achieve mindfulness. It's also essential for kids to have a quiet place to read and learn.

Sure, there are many parks in Central Texas you can take your favorite summer reads to enjoy, but there's something special about reading at home and customizing your home to fit your favorite hobbies.

Creating reading nooks can also be a lot of fun as they make for stylish home accessories. Looking to add a reading nook to your home? Here are some tips from our real estate agents:

  • Make Use Of Unused Corners
    A reading nook doesn't have to be elaborate. If you have an unused corner of a bedroom, simply add a comfortable chair, lamp, and table for the perfect reading nook. You may also want to prioritize bedroom corners located near windows in order to maximize natural light. Some of our favorite Rock Round homes for sale have comfortable reading areas in the corner of the bedroom.

  • Place A Bookshelf Nearby
    Adding a small bookshelf to your reading nook helps to keep your favorite titles within reach, and it also allows you to show off your reading collection. Displaying books is easy -- you can invest in a small bookcase or install a floating shelf on the wall.

  • Create A Nook Under The Stairs
    Living space underneath the stairs is often underutilized. Since this area is often somewhat cozy by design, it can be a great opportunity for a reading nook. Just add a couple of chairs, pillows, and lamps, and you've got yourself a comfortable place to read.

  • Go Outside
    We often think of reading nooks as cozy indoor spaces, but you can also create one outside in the spring and summer. Perhaps you have an unused area of the deck or patio where you can add some comfortable seating and pillows. Gardens and greenspace also make for peaceful, private reading areas.

  • Transform A Closet
    Some homes have excess closet space that can really be put to good use. If you have an extra walk-in closet that you're struggling to fill, you may be able to turn it into a reading nook. If it's large enough to support a couple of pieces of furniture, you can nicely stage the space.

  • Keep It Fun
    Your nook should be a place that also inspires creativity. Hang your favorite art on the wall, and add some creative furniture or a statement piece that really speaks to your personality. It could be a nice antique table or your favorite knick-knacks. 

  • Make It Comfortable
    Comfort is the single most important element of any reading nook. No matter where you decide to build your space, you want it to be comfortable. Invest in a nice oversized chair, good pillows, and a soft blanket. our reading nook should be a place you long for after a stressful day.

Customizing your home is part of enjoying homeownership. Contact us today for more interior design tips and tips on finding the perfect home for your needs.

All Aboard! About the Austin Steam Train Association

Austin Steam Train Association

Want to take a day trip where the journey is just as exciting as the destination? The Austin Steam Train Association has just what you're looking for. This non-profit is dedicated to preserving the city's historic steam trains and the tracks they run on. Our real estate agents have been on several unforgettable train rides on their preserved trains while doing business in the Cedar Park area. Here's what they had to say about this one-of-a-kind Austin attraction.  

Historical Significance 

Although they were in use long before this, steam trains had their heyday in the 1930s through the 1950s. They were fast, elegant, affordable, and offered an easy way to travel long distances that would take days to cross using most other methods of transportation. Today, the Austin Steam Train Association keeps that tradition alive by offering short round-trip outings to nearby towns and points of interest.  

One of the locomotives used by the association (the Southern Pacific 786) is a real vintage steam train that functions identically to the old models used in decades past. This train even needs to be stopped periodically to allow the workers time to replenish the water used during the trip.  

The other (the Alco Diesel 442) is a diesel-electric train that the Association purchased in 1999. It was originally built back in 1916 by the American Locomotive Company, the same company that built the SP 786. It has been carefully restored to maintain function over the years but is currently undergoing a new round of restorations. In the meantime, the association has leased the HZRX Diesel 3134 from Horizon Rail.  

An Immersive Experience 

Riding on one of the association's trains offers a captivating blend of leisure and learning. Each train features vintage train cars that have been painstakingly restored to recreate the experience of historical riders. Each car has its own name and features slightly different furniture and fixtures. Passengers can usually choose which car they want to ride in when booking their ticket. It's a great opportunity to get up close and personal with a piece of history and see for yourself how the steam trains of the past really worked.  

If you want more details on the association, its trains, and their historical context, you're in luck. The association also operates a separate museum at their main office (401 E. Whitestone Boulevard, Suite C-100 in Cedar Park). This location contains photographs, maps, illustrations, and other artifacts that enhance the historical value of your outing.  

Special Events 

In addition to its historical preservation efforts, the association also hosts many exciting events each season. Some of these occasions are kid-friendly, while others cater exclusively to adults.  

One of their most popular events is their Hill Country Flyer, their signature ride across the Texas Hill Country that runs every two weeks or so during most of the year.

Guests typically have the option to reserve train cars in advance, and both adults-only and family-friendly cars are available depending on your needs. Check out their event schedule and see what other fun train trips might be of interest to you! 

The Austin Steam Train Association is a Texas treasure, but it's just one of many incredible things to see and do in this busy city. Contact us today to learn more about our Cedar Park homes for sale, and let us help you find one that meets your needs.
