San Antonio tx for spring break vacation

Considering. Kids are 2 to 9 yrs.

Looks like some family activities. Probably too far to drive to the gulf.

Any tips or thoughts of stuff to do?

Was looking to houston as well to be closer to gulf.

Was also looking at vegas, not sure enough for the family there for more than a few days.

San Antonio for spring break? I wouldn't. Not my favorite town. I think Houston, corpus, coastal area etc would be more fun (everything and more of what sa has plus the coast). The weather here is hit or miss so water sports may be possible and cable parks are all over, bsr in Waco is awesome and worth the trip if that's your fancy.

I mostly agree here. I think Houston is terrible. I grew up in Wisconsin and have lived in San Antonio almost 12 years.

Family fun stuff would be:
- Sea World
- Fiesta Texas
- Spurs game (if possible)
- plenty of shopping
- plenty of golf, if you're interested
- obviously the Alamo
- RiverWalk is great
- I live less than a mile from the Hyatt Hill Country resort which is an amazing place for famliies...plus they've got one of those surf machine things!

Depending on when your Spring Break is, you'd be able to hit a couple of water spots on the way down as well.
- BSR in Waco
- TSR in New Braunfels
- Guadalupe/Comal River tubing in New Braunfels

If you want some lake time, you wouldn't have to twist my arm to take the boat out. I had it out on Saturday when it was sunny and 80.

San Antonio tx for spring break vacation

Probably a strange idea.

Goal is somewhere warm.

Florida airfare is a bit spendy.

Was looking at JW Marriott resort or similar. Big pool with water slides and stuff for the kids, sea world etc.
At this point in Michigan, 75 deg and a friggin school playground will work just fine for us...

Some water time would be a huge plus if it could work.

No golf. Warm enough to golf generally equals warm enough to ski! Sometimes that statement requires a drysuit though.

Thanks for input.

San Antonio is good, but unless you're staying on the riverwalk, it sucks. And staying on the riverwalk is $$$.

If you're willing to go as far as Houston, then you might as well find a private condo on the seawall in Galveston. Before you all bash G-town, they've done a fantastic joib of cleaning up the white trash.


1. The seawall amusement park is awesome
2. Then you have the beach
3. There are condos that have heated pools
4. Water temps in the ocean are still going to be 55-60 in March
5. You can drive back towards Houston and tour NASA
6. Go see the Kemah boardwalk
7. I owuldnt be caught dead on a horse, but you can go in G-town
8. Get on a boat and go deep sea fishing - I avoid the warf and scat cat charters
9. Lone star flight museum
10. Visit The Strand
What does the fox say?


You know they all have a little string hanging out, but it's not a tampon, it's a price tag...

San Antonio tx for spring break vacation

I'm in San Antonio right now. I'm on a business trip, but I've heard there is a bunch to do when the weather is good. It's 35 right now. Like others have said. I'm at the Hyatt Regency and it has a water park and golf course attached.

I can't try them but seems pretty cool.

the coast (port A) is a 2-2.5 hour from San Antonio (SA). As mentioned above, lots of stuff to do around SA, even a day trip up to Austin is only about an hour. Natural Bridge Cavern, canopy park and wildlife drive thru just to the north of SA around New Braunfels, Schlitterbahn but not sure they will be open by spring break??

IMO, Houston is not where I would even consider for vacation with adults much less with children.

Austin and surrounding hill country with wildflowers, State Capital, LBJ and Bullock museums, etc. might be another possibility with day trip(s) to SA for Fiesta TX, Seaworld, Alamo, Riverwalk, etc.
