Natural Bridge Caverns is located just a few miles from San Antonio and is worth the drive.
A 75-minute tour takes you through a half-mile of the largest and most spectacular show cavern in Texas.
The temperature is 70+ and humidity 90+ percent so it is not cool in these caverns.
It is steep and wet in places so wear your sneakers.

Very friendly staff and the food was the best
Our waiter was very friendly and treated us like a good friend. I wished I knew his name. He was of Japanese/African descent. And of course I can't say enough about the Senoritas. Their dress, voice, and music were beautiful. The violin is soothing to my ears. They sang a beautiful happy birthday to me and it was special because my Spanish friend interpreted it for me & the story was sweet it almost brought tears to my eyes. I can't say that I have a favorite dish because I ate here one time. However, there were four other people that also ate here with me that day and they were also very pleased with their meals. I had a dip that was made of chocolate and peanut butter. Strange because the dip didn't taste like the two ingredients as it didn't have much of a sweet taste. My Mexican friend said that the dip is authentic in that her grandma that has lived in Mexico all her life still cooks from an old outdoor oven and makes the same dip. What a great experiance!
