Although there's been more rain this year in San Antonio than ever before, there's no denying that summer is almost upon us and it's time to decide how to spend your summer downtime!
There is really no better way to beat the heat than tubing down the Guadelupe River surrounded by gorgeous trees, architecture and all sorts of nature, including the occasional turtle or armadillo. Rockin' R River Rides is just one option. There are even spots where you can hop in and go swimming. Just make sure to wear plenty of sunscreen!
The Botanical Gardens is one of San Antonio's most beloved destinations and a great way to experience a multitude of ecosystems all in one place. Check their website for upcoming events to fully take advantage of all they have to offer. At the very least, visit the cafe for lunch and then stroll to your heart's content.
To really experience San Antonio, hop on a bike and take your own tour of downtown San Antonio, including the river walk and the burgeoning east side. You can rent bikes all over the city, including the soon-to-be-open Cherry Street Bicycle Co-op, where you can rent more than just their signature "cherriot." They have tandem bikes, pedi-cabs and even a surrey.
