The Carlsbad Caverns are some of the most fascinating and beautiful caves in the world. If you are in the area take a day and explore this natural wonder. The most of the cavern can be explored easily by people of all ages. It is cool in the caves, so you may want to take a sweater or jacket with you even in the hot Summer months. The Carlsbad Caverns are open to visitors every day of the year, except for Christmas Day. You can either explore the caves on your own, or take a guided tour. Tour schedules and fees are located on the website provided and are subject to change. I would recommend planning your tour of the caves in the middle of the afternoon so you can see the nightly bat flight at sunset. Call the park prior to your visit to get an accurate time for bat viewing. It's worth it.
