I would strongly recommend a visit to the gardens. It was one of the nicest I have visited with great selection of native plants.

The garden has a number of interesting sections - indoor areas with cactus and tropical plants, various gardens, areas focusing on Texas, etc. Highly recommended if you visit San Antonio.

In contrast to the Dallas Arboretum, these gardens are more traditional in that plants are grouped by variety and habitat. There are a broad range of plant types on display, from desert succulents to rain forest orchids.

The botanical gardens was a nice way to spend a few hours. The day we went was overcast and misty but actually perfect for photographing the flowers since I didn't have a problem with shadows and sun. There are flowers from different regions well represented. I would recmmend a visit here if you like botanical gardens.

Everything is presented beautifully and it is well worth the entrance fee. It was about 85 degrees when we went and I imagine during the peak summer days it would be hard to make it through... More
