Celebrate the Holidays in San Antonio at These Festive Attractions



San Antonio is full of attractions throughout the year that people from all over the country flock to see and enjoy, and there's no better time to enjoy them than during the holiday season when this city pulls out all the stops!

As you might expect, this city's famed riverwalk  is a must-see, especially in December, when they light up the river with over 100,000 lights. Stop by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for some sweet treats, hop on a river boat or just walk hand-in-hand with your special someone and the world will never feel more magical.

Most of the major tourist attractions do something special for the holidays, including the San Antonio Botanical Garden and San Antonio Zoo.

The Garden features seasonal flowers, garlands and decorations, which make it all the more beautiful; while the Zoo features their "light up the night" event in December with ice skating, hot cocoa and a twinkling light show!

Happy Holidays!
