San Antonio Botanical Garden
33 acres of lush foliage and colorful blooms beg to be appreciated. A wonderful attraction often overlooked by visitors, the garden is exquisite year round, with something always in bloom. A conservatory, formal gardens, "old-fashioned" gardens and native plant areas provide a variety of interest. This is definitely a must-see for both botany experts and garden-variety folks. If you're visiting in the spring, don't forget your antihistamines. The garden center features a luncheon cafe, a gift shop, guided tours, and adults' and children's classes and is also available for private parties.
If we used our imagination, we could see how the gardens would have been absolutely beautiful in the Spring or Summer. However, we went on December 16 when all of the flowers and much of the greenery was dead. It was still worth the money as there were many interesting things to see. We especially enjoyed the old log cabins on the property and a very friendly goose that we met along the way. There were several beautiful fountains and many vine covered arches to look at. If we're ever in the area in the summer, we'll definitely stop by again.
