Cave of the Winds

You can visit the "Cliff Dwellings," which are fabricated replicas of ancient indian ruins. Indians which never lived remotely near that part of the state.

The best sight is Cave of the Winds. I know this because I worked there in high school. Half of the stalactites were originally stalagmites which broke off and were glued upside down (i.e. "ET's Hand"). Several of them are made of concrete (The Leaning Tower of Pisa). Check it out when you pass that way again.

Above ground and after dark, Cave of the Winds stages "Laser Canyon," a laser light show featuring a dragon wearing a helmet and waving a magic wand.
