Groceries and Pharmacy
If you haven’t shopped at HEB then you haven’t experienced the best grocery store in the country. Amazing produce, bakery, great deals and prices! I can’t recommend their home made tortillas enough (both flour and corn are awesome!). Their in-house sushi is also great. If you're looking for a quick meal they also have a section of "Ready Meals" in the front that just requires popping it into the oven. Best of all, this is less than a mile from the house!

Breakfast / Brunch
Magnolias is One of the most popular breakfast spots in town. Although I absolutely love the food, be prepared for a line at nearly all times of day. If you are down for a wait or are ok with a slow morning this is a must visit for breakfast.

A classic for a quick breakfast, we love their lox sandwich and of course the chocolate chip bagels. The vanilla hazelnut coffee is the best fuel to start your day as well!

Who doesn't love an amusement park? The rollercoasters are a dream come true for any adrenaline junkies (not those of us who get queasy, haha). You can enjoy a full day of fun here, whether you're traveling with kids or not. Summer time also has a great waterpark where you can cool off.

Every time I visit the gardens I discover something new. It's a great way to be outside and get your steps in. There are some really beautiful flowers and plants to explore, and a very fun kids area where they can splash and get wet. (Don't miss the little houses near the splash area - the kids won't want to leave). Be sure to check their calendar to see if there are any fun events or classes during your stay: https://www.sabot.org/calendar/

The San Antonio Zoo is a great place to visit some of your favorite animals. Don't miss feeding the giraffes with their giant purple tongues. They just inaugurated a new space for their jaguar that is super cool! If you arrive right when the zoo opens, you will often miss the big crowds.

Who doesn't enjoy a good old fashioned train ride? Hop on board for a 20 minute ride around Brackenridge Park. There's a Starbucks next door for any adults needing coffee. You can walk around Brackenridge Park afterwards and see the ducks, or visit the Kiddie Park right across the street.

One of the most fun museums you'll ever visit. There is fun for all ages - from a mini-city replica where you can fly a plane, shop at HEB, cook burgers or work as a vet, to a Spy Academy for the bigger kids. There are also great outdoor spaces including a super fun slide, bubbles and a very fun musical treehouse. Make sure to schedule a nap for everyone after your visit :)

If you have someone in your group who likes dinosaurs - don't miss a stop at the Witte museum. From the Pterodactyl hanging in the entrance to the other dinosaurs you'll find inside, it'll be a visit to remember. This is not a full day activity, two hours will be more than enough for a fun visit.

Shopping
Arguably the most beautiful and expansive shopping mall in San Antonio, La Cantera has it all from big department stores to boutiques. For shoppers it’s a must stop in San Antonio. The best part is that it's outdoors, so even the non-shoppers can enjoy walking around while the others browse.

Not too far from La Cantera, you'll find The Rim. It's a pretty expansive area where you'll find everything from Target, Michaels and TJ Maxx to Nordstrom Rack, Off 5th and lots of other stores. Their movie theatre is very nice, with a bar and all, called Palladium. You'll also find tons of really good restaurants from HopDoddy for a gourmet burger to Rame, Italian, lots of options! Right by there you'll also find iFly where you can 'fly' as well as a giant racetrack for go-carts and TopGolf nearby.

About a 20 minute house a couple of exits before Downtown you'll find San Antonio's most hip destination - the Pearl District. The hotel Emma is a fancy hotel that used to be a brewery, any movie stars visiting the city stay there. You can walk around the lobby, check out their bar or I highly recommend trying their restaurant 'Supper'. There are lots of other excellent restaurant options, a fast food court and very cute shops to browse including our favorite bookstore (kids section is amazing!). On the weekends you can also check out their farmer's market.
