    The great thing about the San Antonio Botanical Garden is that it mainly features native Texas flora. We all know that Texas is big so chances are you won't get to see all of it in one visit, which is why I enjoyed going on the "Texas native trail" which features flora from three very distinct regions: the Hill Country, the South Texas Plains, and the East Texas Piney Woods. I also enjoyed walking through the "Garden for the Blind", a lovely fragrance garden, and the Japanese strolling garden. A great way to spend a quiet afternoon!

    San Antonio Botanic Gardens

    North of downtown is one of the country's best botanic gardens. This is not to be confused with the Japanese Tea Garden, which is in a different area.

    The gardens cover a large area and have many different themes. There are some greenhouses for the desert and tropical plants. You will also find a smaller Japanese garden, a biblical garden, and an areas which represent certain regions of Texas. If the weather is nice outside, this might be a good choice for an escape. The gardens can be found north from downtown off of I-35. Be sure to check out the website for directions.

    This is one of the best of its kind, with plants from around the world. It even has a garden for the blind. It also offers some good views of the city.
