Looking for a few mini adventures for the family to enjoy? I’ve put together a list of my families favorite San Antonio attractions. All kid and budget friendly!
1. Aquatica Sea World https://seaworld.com/san-antonio/
My family and I took a quick trip to the Aquatica part of Sea World, and we had a blast! My husband and I were amazed at all the different rides they had for each age/size. The park was pretty big for it being an “extension” of Sea World. My father-in-law tagged along, and even he enjoyed it! Everything from tiny slides, a “kiddie park,”lazy river, to crazy thrillers! Everyone enjoyed themselves from my 1 year old – to my “21 y/o” father in law. LOL
2. Fiesta Texas https://www.sixflags.com/fiestatexas
Before you say no to Six Flags, they too have their own mini water park AND Childrens carnival rides! My husband and I went last year by ourselves for a small getaway and we enjoyed the alone/quiet time, but definitely missed the kiddos. We missed them soo much we took a stroll down the childrens ride area just to see if its something we could bring the kids back for, and its definitely a YES! Im surprised we haven’t gone back yet.
3. Schlitterbahn https://www.schlitterbahn.com/new-braunfels
Yaaallllllllll! For as long as I can remember, Schlitterbahn has been a summer family tradition! I wont even go into detail about how fun it is for EVERYONE, cause I’d be here all day! LOL. Just GO!
4. Splashtown https://www.splashtownsa.com/
I can honestly say I’ve never been to splashtown it somehow always gets overlooked, BUT its an option and its conveniently located off I-10! So if youre staying close, I wouldn’t pass up a fun filled day here!
5. The Zoo https://sazoo.org/
Who doesn’t love animals? I love them! Between you and me, I’ve been trying to get the hubs to go back, but hes just not having it! My only recommendation for going, is…… go during the afternoon when its not as hot! (unless you go during the winter) My husband & kids HATE the heat, and they whine and gripe the entire time. I cant say I blame them, this Texas heat is NO JOKE! The zoo is definitely most enjoyable after 5! Right now they’re having Jungle Boogie Nights every Saturday til 9pm! Check out their website for all their cool animals & events. Don’t tell anyone, but Savanna the Giraffe is my faaaave!
This one is for all you busy mamas who don’t want to go anywhere, or do anything but unwind & relax! This resort has just enough fun for the kids with their 1100ft. lazy river and on site waterpark! Plus the perfect amount of R&R for mom and dad with their onsite spa & cabanas!
7. Ripleys Believe it or Not www.ripleys.com/sanantonio
8. The Alamo https://thealamo.org/
9. The Riverwalk https://www.thesanantonioriverwalk.com/
10. Ultra Accessible Family Fun Park https://www.morganswonderland.com/
This one is probably my favorite! “Morgan’s Wonderland is the first theme park of its kind IN THE WORLD! In 2017, the ultra-accessible™ theme park opened it’s expansion, Morgan’s Inspiration Island, which was named on the 2018 “World’s Greatest Places” list by TIME Magazine. Guided by its mission of inclusion, the park strives to bring together guests all ages and all abilities through the power of inclusive play.” Their mission to bring families together of all abilities is absolutely beautiful!
