    This place was great! The kids loved it, it was pretty quiet, not many people here. We brought dried feed for the animals and the peacocks, ducks, and deer walked right up to us and followed us around. My kids especially enjoyed feeding the deer. The grounds, surrounding building and tower were very nice and maintained. There are picnic tables under the huge oak. Follow the posted warning, don't feed the animals popcorn, crackers, or bread!

    Came here as a kid and then an adult, loved it both times! Bring some food to feed the deer, and a blanket to relax in the grass. Lots of birds, including peacocks and ducks. Great place to relax and enjoy a gorgeous day.

    The Quadrangle is an unusual find, a sanctuary for peacocks, deer, and geese. It has historical significance also, with the clock tower and fact that it was used as a movie site. It's also free. You can view military tanks, artillery, and helicopter at the parking lot.

    I enjoyed feeding the deer and peafowl. The museum was so much fun! The entire family had a wonderful time.

    Very nice and clean inside. Animals will not run away especially if you have food. It is on an Active Military base so you will have to go to the Visitor Center to get a background check and visitor pass.

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
