    After a long-awaited return, Cave of the Mounds is back with their Adults-Only Cave After Dark event. With live music, local drinks, and a self-paced tour of a cave, this event attracts people from all over the state.
    Spend your night with the one you love in a warm, candle-lit cave. Enjoy romantic music echoing through the natural wonder of the cave. 
    Candles will be lit in parts of the cave. We will also have live music in the largest room of our cave. This creates a beautiful melody as guests leisurely walk through a self-paced guided experience. The self-paced tour is when our staff is stationed around the cave to answer questions, point out interesting details, and make sure people see the whole cave. There’s no rush and it’s a great experience.
    “We have had many people inquire about when our Cave After Dark events will resume,” says Communications Manager, Tate Phillip. She has been working at Cave of the Mounds for almost 5 years and has been a part of these events since 2018.
    “Our last Cave After Dark was in March of 2020 and we have been trying to come up with a plan to host these events again.” She explained. Cave of the Mounds loves hosting these larger events that draw people to one of the most beautiful areas in Wisconsin.
    “We are only hosting two Cave After Dark events this year just until we get back into the swing of things. And our Valentine’s Day-themed event ‘Love on the Rocks’ is one of our most popular.”
    Cave of the Mounds is hosting a Valentine’s Day event just 20 minutes west of Madison. From 5:30 PM – 9 PM on February 11, 2023, this event will rock your world. 
    Are you planning a romantic weekend? Stay in one of the many local lodging options, some of our favorite unique locations include the GrandStay Hotel, Amethyst Iron Inn (a speakeasy hotel & spa), or the Sunniva B&B close to downtown Mount Horeb. Visit local shops, eat at delicious restaurants, hike nature trails, discover the Driftless Area, and enjoy the unique experience of a romantic time in a beautiful cave.
    Tickets are $44.99 per person. They will be available on January 10th, 2023. Tickets are non-refundable. This is an adults-only event and alcoholic beverages will be sold. (Ages 21+ only). Keys to the Cave Members will receive a free gift! The tickets include a tour of the cave, free live music, and one free alcoholic beverage.
