There's nothing like summer in San Antonio! This city is always looking for an excuse to celebrate, and summer is no exception. If you're looking for some stay-cation ideas, look no further. We'll show you how to make the most of the Alamo City.
There's always a lot to do here in town! In June, celebrate culture at the Texas Folklife Festival (June 9-11), eat until you're blue in the face at the Nacogdoches Blueberry Festival (June 10), and head east for the Luling Watermelon Thump (June 22-25). July brings countless Independence Day celebrations, and music lovers can't get enough of the Cactus Pear Music Festival (July 5-9) in nearby Boerne.
Theme Parks & Attractions
Sea World San Antonio, Fiesta Texas, and Schlitterbahn are all obvious summer choices for kids and adults alike. But don't leave out Morgan's Wonderland, an incredible ultra-accessible park for all ages - and the only one in the world. The San Antonio Zoo is one of the finest in the world - take a day to feed the giraffes and experience lions, tigers, and bears! And don't miss our beautiful San Antonio Botanical Gardens!
If you're wanting to experience some of San Antonio's rich history, the Alamo is, of course, a great place to start. But that's not all San Antonio has to offer. Why not try a tour of the city's beautiful Missions, built in the 16th century? You can also tour the gorgeous Spanish Governor's Mansion - furnished with Spanish Colonial period pieces and featuring a beautifully landscaped courtyard.
Museums Are Cool
During hot summer months, one of San Antonio's many museums may prove to be the perfect way to cool off while learning something cool! Kids will love the Doseum and the newly renovated Witte Museum, which includes some amazing new dinosaur fossils. If art is your thing, check out the San Antonio Museum of Art or the McNay Art Museum!
A Little Different
Try something new and head underground at the Natural Bridge Caverns, first discovered by college students in 1960. Or, travel north to San Marcos and take a ride on a glass-bottom boat in Aquarena Springs, where you can learn a little more about Texas wildlife and water conservation in the former theme park.
