The San Antonio Botanical Garden might just be one of the most beautiful places in the entire city. The 38-acre park, with a tall hill at its center that provides a great view of San Antonio, features all kinds of nature, from native plants found throughout the garden in a variety of displays to a sensory garden where touch and smell are stimulated; or, for the romantics, a beautiful and fragrant rose garden; or, for self reflection, there's the peaceful Kumamoto En garden — a gift from San Antonio's sister city Kumamoto, Japan; or there's the cactus and succulent garden; and on and on. Art lovers should also rejoice. There's always something special at the Botanical Garden. Through June 5, garden-goers can enjoy "Wings of the City," a sculpture garden by Mexican artist Jorge Marín, who is known across the globe. This exhibit has made its way through Mexico and is now touring the United States. Another treat that's coming soon is "Storybook Houses," which are kid-sized, family-friendly houses created by area architects and designers, which opens March 5 and runs through July 10. $7-$10, 9am-5pm daily, San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston Pl., (210) 536-1400,
