The Linville Caverns are located in northern McDowell County, North Carolina. They are open to the public year round for guided tours and are an ideal destination for visitors of all ages.

Linville Caverns opened to the public for tours in 1937 and are now the only show caverns in North Carolina. During the half-hour long tours, visitors are escorted through the caverns and learn about cavern history, creatures and formations. In the fall and winter, visitors to the caverns may be able to see the Eastern Pipistrelle and Little Brown bats.
