My family and I love taking that scenic trip on I-88 to Exit 22 to Howe Caverns almost every year. The discovery of Howe Caverns is a fascinating story. Lester Howe noticed in the summer that his cows would always gather at one spot so he investigated and found a cool breeze coming from a hole in the Earth.

He and a friend found a cave where the temperature is always 52 degrees. That was in 1842 and all of these years later, it is still a popular summer destination. One of the great things about Howe Caverns is that you don't need training or special equipment to go caving or spelunking.

Their motto is "Keeping Adventure and Exploration Alive" and on July 14th, they'll take adventure to a new level. That's when they'll be hosting "Naked in a Cave" in honor of International Nude Day.

Adults can tour the caves by lantern with little else...literally, because you can explore the caves in the buff. The tour starts at 7:30 p.m. and no phones or cameras will be allowed.

They are celebrating body positivisty because natural is positive. I'm positive that I wouldn't be taking the "Leisurely Naked Stroll" but a fast walk. Shoes and reservations are required.

Your ticket price will get you a souvenir robe and an adult beverage. I think I would need the drink BEFORE I did buff exploration at Howe Caverns. Go here for more details.
