Now that we’ve settled into summer, you’re probably looking for ways to entertain the kids and keep them active and engaged, while staying cool yourself. Thankfully, if you’re moving to San Antonio, you’ll find tons of summer activities for them — and you — to enjoy.
The DoSeum is San Antonio’s newest children’s museum and is renowned for its STEM-based approach and interactive exhibits.
Been a while since you’ve been to the Witte Museum? Rediscover this San Antonio institution, with great exhibits including an exploration of South Texas heritage and H-E-B’s Body Adventure.
What kid isn’t obsessed with fire trucks? Take them to the San Antonio Fire Museum, where they can get an up-close look at the trucks and those who ride in them.
Six Flags Fiesta Texas can be hard to enjoy on the hottest days—unless you know where to go. Thunder Rapids Water Coaster just opened, combining thrills with the ability to cool off with a splash. Or, just head to White Water Bay instead, and enjoy a whole park full of water rides and activities.
There are lots of other ways to cool off in the water in San Antonio. Check out this great list of splash pads in the area.
Get out of the sun and get over to University Bowl, where you can bowl a game on 32 lanes, play pool, laser tag, and video games, and even grab something to eat.
Just a short ride from San Antonio, New Braunfels is a great spot to spend a day—or longer—with the kids. Tube the Comal River, a favorite choice of families because it’s the calmer of the city’s two rivers and it stays 72-degrees all year round. Schlitterbahn New Braunfels is the top waterpark in the country, and if you’re going for your first time, you’ll soon know why! Other attractions that are great for family outings in the area include Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch and Natural Bridge Caverns. These two hotspots are part of the same complex, and offer everything from safaris with 500 exotic, native, and endangered animals you can feed to caverns you can tour and a Canopy Challenge with Zip Line.
Another short car ride from San Antonio is Boerne. Your day of fun can include a trip to Boerne City Lake, with a fishing pier, boat dock, and butterfly garden; The Hauptstrasse or Main Street, with charming shops, art galleries, and restaurants; Cibolo Nature Center, where 100 acres of wilderness, trails, walking paths, and horseback riding await, and Cave Without A Name, a National Natural Landmark.
If you’re moving to San Antonio, you’ll definitely want to check out the growing Southside and its popular masterplanned community, Mission del Lago. Community has its own sparkling pool and pavilion as well as two on-site parks and a community golf course. They complement the new homes in San Antonio featuring modern floorplans and desirable features. With a convenient location and abundant community amenities, it’s no wonder Mission del Lago is the fastest-selling community in its price range.
