Explore San Antonio's World-Class Attractions, From Rollercoasters to Historic Parks



San Antonio is growing by leaps and bounds with another million people expected to move here in the next ten years. You can bet the city is getting ready for this expansion, and that includes renovations and upgrades to some of the primary destinations in town, not to mention new things are popping up all the time. 

The Alamo city has one of the most beautiful botanical garden in the country, and is a must see! The San Antonio Botanical Garden's new expansion includes an adventure garden for kids and a culinary garden that features fantastic events for both adults and children. Although phase 1 of their multi-million dollar additions is complete, there's still more to come. 

While the kids (and some adults) will love the rides at Fiesta Texas ()one of the best entertainment parks in the country) and the specialized interactive (even educational) fun to be had at the DoSeum, the whole family can enjoy an exploration of San Antonio's history at the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and the Witte Museum. Did we mention they have dinosaurs? (Not real ones, of course!)
