*Disclosure: Natural Bridge Caverns provided our family with a free tour of the caverns when we helped them with a promotion about a year ago, but we were so excited to finally get to visit ourselves! All opinions are my own.
After arriving in San Antonio the afternoon before, touring the Alamo, strolling The Riverwalk, and taking a Riverboat tour, we got up the next morning and headed to Natural Bridge Caverns.
We arrived pretty soon after opening and didn’t have to wait long at all for our tour.
The caves are gorgeous! I was so amazed. As we walked around, I just kept thinking, “What an awesome God!” We look in the heavens and see the beauty of the stars and galaxies. We look on land and see his gorgeous creation. So incredible to be under the ground and see the beauty of how he created things to form! I just loved the beauty!
Since we were one of the few groups with lots of kids, we decided to follow at the end, much to the girl’s dismay. I didn’t want to hold everyone back, but in retrospect we did miss a lot of what the tour guide explained, so get ahead in line when you go!
In the different rooms of the cave formations seemed to follow patterns. The Chandelier room was beautiful!
Valley of the Fallen Lords room. See how different from one room to another?
I was so impressed by the amazing views!
The caverns were extremely wet on the day we were there. Some of the rooms were even under water so we were able to see rooms that aren’t typically on the tour. Our guide even said it was her first time to see some of them.
I thought the pools of water only added to the beauty!
The Natural Bridge Caverns Discovery Tour was incredible, definitely something to put on your itinerary on your next trip to San Antonio!

My kids love going to caverns. It’s like a magical world under the ground!
