Plenty of Sights to See
Situated just off Route 66 in Stanton, Meramec Caverns has been drawing visitors for decades, thanks to the innovative idea of advertising on the sides and roofs of barns that dot the landscape of the Midwest. Your tour begins in what’s known as The Ballroom, a huge entryway that leads into the cavern’s seven layers. It is simply amazing, as are the formations and small bodies of water you see on the tour. While the show cave is the focal point of your visit, the property includes a zipline ride, canoe rentals, lodging, camping and some of the best homemade fudge in Missouri!
