In 1960, four college students from St. Mary's University believed that large underground passages existed under the limestone bridge. They were right. Today, this area is known as Natural Bridge Caverns. These caverns are one of the most popular attractions in Texas and an easy drive near our San Antonio apartments. Here is some of what you can discover during your visit:
Don't miss the Discovery Tour. It features an exciting half-mile journey through the most spectacular show cavern in Texas. You'll see chandeliers, stalactites, stalagmites, and other formations. They're centuries old and are still growing today. The tour offers approximately 60 minutes of fun. Walking shoes with good traction are highly recommended.
Discovery Adventure Tour
Perfect for thrill seekers, the Discovery Adventure Tour is for those looking to get down and dirty. The fun partially recreates the journey of the original explorers. You'll venture off the beaten path, where there are no handrails or paved trails. This tour lasts between 3.5 and four hours.
Zip Rails and Ropes Course
Offering an adventure in the sky, the Zip Rails and Ropes Course allows you to soar through the tree canopy as your athletic ability is put to the test. The ropes course stands 60 feet high. You'll have up to 45 minutes to conquer obstacles like double beams, lily pads, and vertical rope ladders.
Discovery Village Trading Post
Finally, end your visit at the Discovery Village Trading Post. It's where you can shop for gifts or treat yourself to something special. The selection includes jewelry, works of art, and one of the best collections of rocks and minerals in Texas.
