Adventure Days: Get Out and Play!

With the season’s change from summer to fall comes not only the opportunity to wear sweaters and see ever-changing leaf colors, but also cooler temperatures- allowing us more outdoor activities. Here are some ideas:

Japanese Tea Gardens: These lush gardens overlook beautiful San Antonio, hosting a variation of scenery including the downtown area, Trinity University, and the San Antonio Zoo. Home to a Pagoda and multiple trails, it’s a must see for those looking become more familiar with the San Antonio skyline. Take a picnic, and stay until the blue afternoon skies meet shades of purple and orange and all hues of pink!

Comanche Lookout Park: The recently opened trails on the Northeast side of town are deemed as “Real gorgeous” by Junior Renee Cornue.

Hondo Corn Maizes: While aliens may not have created these corny masterpieces, the folks at the Hondo Corn Maize have turned this into a digital art form.
