Enjoying San Antonio


Nature-lovers who visit the city and are billeted at  San Antonio bed and breakfast inns would enjoy the fact that natural wonders around the city are  within easy reach of their accommodations.  The Mitchell Lake Audubon Center should be interesting for bird-watching aficionados.  Only a few minutes away from downtown San Antonio, this park is a beauty.  To enjoy the sight of more varieties of animals though, San Antonio Zoo should be the best place to go.  Considered as one of the country’s best, this zoo is home to thousands of animals that belong to more than 700 species. 

Just northwest of the city is a geologic formation, the Hill Country, which boasts of huge limestone caverns and caves. Making the trek inside these caverns and caves even more thrilling are the lantern tours, the best ways of seeing these natural wonders. The famed Natural Bridge and Cascade Caverns of San Antonio are found in the area as well.  There are many other ways to enjoy the nearby hill country, including rappelling, and rock climbing for the more daring and adventurous.

It is possible to see the entire city of San Antonio with just a several-minute glance.  Visitors who want this unique opportunity can go to the Tower of the Americas.  This 750-feet tower built in the 1960s has undergone major renovations to make the viewing deck even more enjoyable.  A rotating restaurant is at the top, where guests can dine in luxury while getting a panoramic view of this beautiful city.  There are a number of San Antonio bed and breakfast inns near the Tower. 

San Antonio is one of Texas’ cultural centers and the number of art and cultural museums in the city only attest to this fact.  The San Antonio Museum of Art is known as having the largest collection of Latin American artworks in the entire country.  Aside from this, the museum also hosts artifacts and other antique materials from ancient Greece, Rome, and Egypt.  Paintings from Asia and Europe are displayed in its galleries.  For enthusiasts of anything reminiscent of the wild west, the Buckhorn Saloon and Museum should be the place to go.  This saloon is more than a century old and it displays the artifacts that date back to the era when Texas was still cowboy country.

With all these sights dotting the city, it is expected that San Antonio bed and breakfast inns would never run out of guests.  Fortunately, there are many such accommodations, guaranteeing visitors in the city  a place to stay that is comfortable and cultural.
