Dozens Of Peacocks And Other Wildlife Roam Freely Outside Fort Sam Houston, A Historic Military Base
“Colorful” probably isn’t the first word that comes to mind when you think of a military base, but Fort Sam Houston is far from average. This historic place is home to free-roaming peacocks and other wildlife, and you can feed them directly out of the palm of your hand.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
