Have Fun at the Best (and Most Unexpected) Attractions in San Antonio

San Antonio isn't one of the leading tourist destinations for nothing. They offer some of the best attractions and activities in all of Texas! Whether you're looking for popular entertainment for the whole family or off-the-beaten track gems, San Antonio's got a little something special for everyone!

Right now, you can't go wrong at the Pearl Brewery. Locals and tourists alike are loving the community here. It's a great place to go for a walk along the river, grab a bite to eat, go shopping or bar hopping. On weekends, they offer the city's biggest farmers market with local edibles, prepared foods and more. 

You may have heard of Natural Bridge Caverns, but have you heard of The Cave Without a Name? Yes, that's actually its name. This commercial cave is unbelievably beautiful in its raw state. If you're really wanting to feel like an explorer, this is the place to go! It's also a great way to stay cool in the summer months. 

If you have little ones, then you must take them to the DoSeum, the new incarnation of the Children's Museum.
