Mammoth Cave National Park, Kentucky
Mammoth Cave is located in south-central Kentucky, and the caves literally go on for miles and miles. Visitors can spend as little as an hour, or spend much more money for a much longer tour than even involves some crawling.
The obvious problem with caves is that pictures look really odd. Which way is up in the shot? And does it really matter?
Having been to a few caves, they all start to look alike to me after a while. This is a nice, big one that can keep scientists interested for months, but for many the principle of "seen one, seen them all" may apply.
By the way, you can do some hiking and other activities on the land above the caves.
