Natural Bridge Caverns

Over the Easter weekend (I know… this post is LONG overdue…), Brian and I went to San Antonio to visit his family. Together, we took a day trip out to Natural Bridge Caverns. The area gets its name from the bridge¬†that exits in nature.

I’ve never been to any sort of cavern before, so I was very impressed. The cave trail is .75 miles of underground beauty. Being the weekend, it was very crowded. We were basically shoulder to shoulder with people walking through the tunnels (which made me stopping to take photos every 2 feet very awkward…). I’m definitely looking forward to going back on a weekday when we can really take out time meandering along.

My favorite room in the cave was the Emerald Lake. The water was so clear and the reflections were simply beautiful.


Because this was our first time, we opted for the basic Discovery Tour. Natural Bridge Caverns also offers a Hidden Passages Tour, and Adventure Tour, and an early morning/night time Lantern Tour, where you explore the dark caves by lantern light only. If underground isn’t your thing, there’s a large ropes course outside ending with a zip line.

Brian bought some souvenirs, along with a beautiful necklace for me!
