The only con I could even think of is something the garden needs for its local plants, the Texas heat. I love this place, I go once a year in the Spring. I keep wanting to go to the garden events like Shakespeare in the Park and others, but I always forget. They sound great, and I will try not to miss the next event.
The gardens are in various sections and you can see a lot of foliage. There are also indoor gardens to meet various climates so you can become familiar with plants not so native to TX. My favorite part is the Garden for the Blind (although I think it goes by another name), as its full of scented plants that you can sniff away.
And it's pretty cheap to get into. I believe its half price for students (which I am, so it helps), which makes it cheaper.
beautiful retreat in San Antonio. Who knew the Botanical Gardens was in the heart of San Antonio? I was shocked when my friends said they were getting married there. I had no idea what to expect, but boy was I impressed! It was such a beautiful location. The atmosphere was very romantic. The aroma from the plants was so fragrant. It is definately a top place to visit while in San Antonio. Bring your camera or your canvas, you will be inspired!
You don't need a green thumb to enjoy this floral paradise..
For a brief lesson in Texas geography, visit the Native area, which features plants and authentic buildings from different regions of the state. Meditate while you stone-step your way through the Japanese Garden or learn how visually impaired guests enjoy the beauty in the Garden for the Blind. Keep young ones entertained in the Children's Garden. A must-see is the Lucile Halsell Conservatory--glass buildings tucked into the earth are full of vegetation requiring specific, computer-controlled climates.
