Indoor and Outdoor Adventures in San Antonio This December



Life doesn't get any more enjoyable in San Antonio than in the month of December. While most other major cities are suffering a frigid winter, San Antonio citizens are frolicking outside in the sunshine, often in shorts and t-shirts. Here's your chance to join them!

There are dozens of fantastic places to go for some outdoor adventures, but few are as pretty as Enchanted Rock. Although, it's a bit of a jaunt from the city, it's worth the trip. Hike up to the top, bring a picnic, and get ready for an unforgettable view of Texas in all its natural glory.

However, if you want to stay close to the city, not far from downtown, you can visit the Japanese Tea Garden. This beautiful wonderland features koi-filled ponds, stone bridges and gorgeous flowers. A romantic spot for a first winter date. 

For some nightlife adventures, take that special date or a group of friends to the Alamo City's premier jazz club, Jazz, TX, for live music, craft cocktails and incredible eats. As they say, "fine jazz, serious food." 

The holiday season just got better!
