Looking for something to do off the beaten path in San Antonio? Check out these three local gems!
World’s Largest Cowboy Boots
At 35 feet tall and 33 feet long, the giant pair of faux ostrich-and-calf-skin cowboy boots in North Star Mall is truly a sight to see. Created by Bob "Daddy-O" Wade, this humongous work of art was originally installed in Washington, D.C., before finding its permanent home here in San Antonio. If you’ve never gazed upon this popular tourist attraction, maybe it’s aboot time. Just be mindful of heavy traffic.
We’ve spoken about this ecological marvel before. Located in the Hill Country northeast of the city lies Bracken Cave. Famous for its bat colony – the largest in the world – Bracken Cave is also home to plenty of birds as well, including the endangered golden-cheeked warblers. This local treasure is a must visit for nature and animal lovers.
Cool Crest Miniature Golf Course
As the oldest active mini golf course in the U.S., Cool Crest Miniature Golf Course has been serving the community for nearly a century! Founded circa 1929 – the exact date has been lost to time – this local attraction boasts an Art Deco design, lush tropical plants, and live music, providing a one-of-a-kind ambience to the game of miniature golf. Choose between the classic 1929 course or the re-engineered 1959 course.
