  • This is truly a hidden gem in San Antonio. It is so awesome to take pic and there is a parking lot next to the entrance free of charge. You are also so close to the river walk.  more »

  • So much fun! We are from Illinois and thought the experience was amazing! One of the locals told us about the bats coming out to feed at dusk...that was awesome! You don't see that in Chicago! 😂
  • I loved this place. Super cute and lovely to walk through.
  • PERFECT PLACE to see the NIGHTLY BATS exciting around Dusk just under the Camden Street Bridge just around the corner !!!!!!! Largest #BatWatching site in SA. Truly a Great place for All ages and is wheelchair friendly. Walk down the steps to get the #BestView of Bats as you look up into the cracks to see them getting ready for their nighttime feeding of up to 2 Tons of Insects. Other places within driving range just outside of town. I'll edit with the exact name soon. ENJOY ❗❗❗
  • A short walk south from the Pearl riverwalk entry point or you can also enter from street level at the Camden Bridge or Newell Bridge. Take some time here and look for some hidden items. Look very closely into the waterfall.
  • Nearby Pearl area is a great place to eat and relax.

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.
