I’ve been to the Alamo, and although I am a history buff and love all places like this, you don’t want to miss this one. It really doesn’t take that long to go through and there is a great little audio recording you listen to about the attack of the Mexican Army and the Texan Defenders who were defeated in 1836. Stroll the plaza and buy souvenirs. It’s fun, educational, and informative.

The landscaped grounds alone are worth the trip. There are absolutely beautiful shrubs and flowers at every turn. But the museum is also nice! Modern art was first introduced to Texas here.


Brackenridge Park

In San Antonio Botanical Garden, you'll find yourself stepping into a living canvas of color and fragrance. Delight in themed spaces like the tranquil Japanese garden, the vibrant Rose Pavilion, and the buzzing Hummingbird Garden. Each season brings a different spectacle, so whether you're greeted by the lush greens of summer or the vivid hues of spring, there's always a blossoming wonder waiting to enchant your senses. Don't forget to check out the futuristic Lucile Halsell Conservatory, a glass structure that houses exotic plants from around the world. Truly, this garden is a nature lover's paradise!
