COCHISE COUNTY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The best attraction in Arizona has been named, and it's Kartchner Caverns State Park, according to a recent news release. 

Kartchner Caverns State Park was part of a contest from USA Today that asked the public to vote for their favorite Arizona attraction.  The contest ran from May 8 to June 5 and the public could vote on attractions around Arizona.  

According to the vote Kartchner Caverns came in first before the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix and Tucson's own Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum.  

The caverns were discovered in 1974, and is home to a variety of unique materials and formations that are still growing.  This summer the park is offering several discounts for visitors.
