Sightseeing
Travel Time: 20 minutes. Very popular place to visit while in San Antonio. Free to the public! I do recommend purchasing an audio tour ($7/ea), if not a guided tour from the kiosk outside of the Alamo entrance. It is well worth the money, otherwise you may get there and wonder what all the fuss is about, not fully understanding the rich history around you. Also, don’t let the line intimidate you, it goes very quickly. Cost of parking is $20 within a block or two of this site, price decreases the farther you get from it. Expect a little bit of a walk to get to the entrance from your parking location. Don’t forgot to hit The Riverwalk directly across the street for some great food, ambiance, and additional site seeing.

Travel Time: 28 minutes. One of my favorite places to visit here in San Antonio! So much history and gorgeous architecture that makes you feel like you’re stepping back in time. Plenty of space for kids to run around if you’re bringing them in tow. Admission is free to the public. Parking is free on site. There is a small gift shop in the square, or you can visit the visitor’s center if you’re looking for a souvenir. Please remember to be respectful of those attending Mass on Saturdays and Sundays during certain hours. When Mass is not in session, feel free to take a look around inside the church as well!

Travel Time: 20 minutes. Fun 35 minute guided river tour is another relaxing way to enjoy what downtown San Antonio has to offer. General admission is $13.50/person. The ticketing and boarding areas are accessible from the San Antonio River Walk. Expect parking to cost up to $20. This is a great side activity to do if you are already checking out the Alamo and/or River Walk so you don’t have to pay for parking on multiple occasions.

Travel Time: 20 minutes. For those that love caves, Natural Bridge Caverns is a fun stop. The cave is a constant 70 degrees inside year around but is extremely humid so be prepared to sweat a little while climbing the steps in the cavern. Parking is free here, but ticket prices vary depending on the day. The highest I’ve seen is $25 for an adult. I recommend buying tickets online in advance to get the best prices. For those with a little extra adventure in their blood, they offer guided spelunking tours to deeper, more difficult sections of the cave for an extra fee. This place offers above-ground fun as well. There is a zip line ropes course (separate adult & kid versions), planing for gold, an outdoor maze, food, and a souvenir shop, of course.

Sightseeing & Food Scene
Travel Time: 20 minutes. There are numerous options for dining on the river walk. Sitting outside looking over the river while you enjoy a meal or even afternoon beverage is a fantastic way to relax. If you would like to add some interest to your dining experience, there are generally some Mariachi musicians traveling the river walk that would love to serenade you for a fee. When you are finished with your meal, feel free to check out river boat tours, museums, and shops. Parking within a couple blocks is $20, and costs less the farther away you are.

Family Activities
Travel Time: 1-2 min (drive), 8-10 min (walk). The 75 acre city park is just a short walk away and features a 5 mile walking trail, lake, play grounds, and a disk golf course, and more. The park has restrooms, picnic tables, and gazebos. Also, keep an eye out for the herd of deer that live in the park year around.

Travel Time: 20 minutes. Love the zoo here in San Antonio! There are a lot of fun areas and the animals have been quite active each time I’ve been. The kids love seeing the animals and so do I, if I’m going to be completely honest. My daughter’s favorite exhibit is the hippo encounter. I personally love the Okapi, a very rare animal only found in one Forrest in the entire world! There are multiple animals that you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere. It’s well maintained and quite an enjoyable experience for everyone in the family. Parking is free but fills up very quickly, otherwise you’ll have to park further away and subject yourself to a bit of a walk. General admission is $18.50 for adults and $14.50 for children. While you’re there, try stopping by the Kiddie Park right next door for kids ages 1-6.

Travel Time: 20 minutes. America’s oldest children’s park and one of our favorite places to take the little ones for some fun. These vintage children’s rides are a great way to keep kids ages 1-6 occupied for an hour or two. There are no weight or height restrictions for the littles. This mini-amusement park is right next door to the San Antonio Zoo and shares the same parking lot, which is free but fills up quickly. Additional parking is available but is a bit longer of a walk so you’d want to arrive early. The park is operated via ticketing system. 1 ticket=1 ride. They sell the tickets in increments of 1, 6, or unlimited day pass. Prices range from $2.50 to $13.00 depending on what option you choose. Face painting and other fun activities are available for an additional fee.

Travel time: 8 minutes. We take our littles here a couple times per week during the summer months. It’s free and a fantastic way to cool off in the heat! There is a shaded area for those that prefer not to get wet. Playgrounds with shade canopies are located right next to the splash pad.
