Another Aquarena Springs postcard, this image taking “uninteresting” to a whole new level. The cacti is all but invisible in the poorly exposed shot, and it’s difficult to read the sign attached to the tree. (it says “Brag Tree”) On the back:
AQUARENA, San Marcos, Texas. The Texana Village Exhibit at Aquarena features the largest variety collection of cacti and tropical plants in the southwest if not in the nation. Literally hundreds of odd shaped and colorful specimens are viewed in a tropical setting of waterfalls and trickling streams. Another photographer’s “must see”.
Just when I thought I’d seen all the Aquarena Springs postcards… I find more! This one shows the 1830 home of Dr. Eli T. Merriman, the historic structure being located in the Texana Village area of the amusement park.
The Aquarena Springs Sky Ride that took visitor’s to the Hanging Gardens. Well guys and gals, I’ve spent all day posting Aquarena postcards, and this is the end of the line. At least I’ve gotten them out of my system!
The surface stage (as opposed to the underwater one) at Aquarena Springs’ Submarine Theater.
The Aquarena Springs Inn, now described as a bed and breakfast on this card. Big bed and breakfast!

The General Store in the Texana Village frontier town at Aquarena Springs.
