I've always enjoyed visiting botanical gardens, they can provide such a fascinating surrounding even in a really busy city. So it was understandable that while in town, I would visit the San Antonio Botanical Garden. And once again, I got lost in the sheer beauty and variety of plants and flowers.

The garden has also a small restaurant which serves such delicious Mexican food, you definitely have to try, though notice that they close at 2pm. There are also several exhibitions throughout the garden, one more interesting than the other. It would definitely be one of the highlights of your trip; it was surely mine.

Address:
555 Funston Pl, San Antonio, TX 78209, USA

Price:
Admission for adults is $8 and $5 for children.
