San Antonio Botanical Garden

Everyone visiting San Antonio should go to view the beautiful Botanical gardens. I suggest you go in mid-morning. It takes about 2 to 3 hours to see everything and even though the facility is open until 5PM there is a small restaurant in the main building that closes at 2PM.
This 33-acre living museum entices visitors with seasonal floral displays, a serene native forest walk, exotic plant specimens from around the world, modernistic glass pyramids and even an authentic log cabin. Highlights include the Old Fashioned Perennial Garden, Rose Garden, Sacred Garden, Garden for the Blind, Kuamoto En (an authentic Japanese Garden) and extensive native collections representing the Hill Country, East and Southwest Texas. The futuristic Lucile Halsell Conservatory features plants from around the world displayed in the Exhibit Room, Desert Pavilion, Tropical Forest Room, Palm House and Fern Grotto. The Aquatic Garden Pool is the central feature of the Conservatory Courtyard.
