There’s much to do in our area. Plan your next adventure here!

Kartchner Caverns State Park
Discovered in 1974 but kept a secret from most for many years, Kartchner Caverns State Park opened to the public in 1999. This protected, “living cave with rooms filled with beautiful formations” is a pristine cavern just outside of our town. Today visitors come from all parts of the world to witness the extraordinary variety of colors and formations.

The Lantern Festival
Come together with individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and walks of life to join in this spectacular annual event. Enjoy music, dancing, food, and beverages. When the time is just right, you will light the sky with your highest hopes, deepest regrets, and fondest dreams. It will be a night you’ll never forget. For more information, visit the City of Benson website.

City Pool
