Fun Adventures in San Antonio With the Kiddos

You can't visit this number one tourist destination, San Antonio, without a day excursion to one of the most amazing amusement parks in the U.S., especially with the kids in tow. Six Flags Fiesta Texas, however, is an exciting ride (literally) for all ages. With thrill rides, family rides, kids rides, live entertainment, theme park goodies and even fireworks, Fiesta Texas lives up to its name. 

For the adventuring kids in your family who like to explore nature and all its wonders, take them to The Cave Without a Name, a  limestone solutional cave. Not far outside the city limits, this underground beauty is filled with ancient rock formations you've never seen before. 

If you're looking for a relaxing morning or afternoon, pack a picnic or pick up some food to-go to enjoy at the thoughtfully-landscaped Phil Hardberger Park. The little ones can play on the playscapes, while the older kids can explore the park. For the best family fun, rent some bikes and ride the trails together.
