Worth the Drive: Ohio’s Free Christmas Cave

The Christmas Cave is located in Minford, OH. The free display features nearly a mile of self-guided displays, both above and below ground in the White Gravel Mines. The mine’s mysterious passages are decked out with lights depicting the Christmas story, including three Nativity exhibits. In addition, there are also two tunnels of lights and new outdoor displays.

Although a newer holiday tradition, it’s already become very popular. Last year, 36,000 people walked its grounds during the holiday season, some traveling hundreds of miles to see the spectacle.
