A Wild Ride
The San Antonio Zoo is home to more than 3,000 fascinating animals. Hippos, giraffes, tarantulas, scorpions, elephants and many other species call this 56-acre zoo home. The BugMania exhibit will give bug lovers something to squeal about, while traditional zoo mammals produce an endless array of "oo's" and "ah's" from less insect-tastic observers. Little extras like the San Antonio Zoo Eagle train, Animal Encounters, Nature Spot, Butterflies! Garden and Tiny Tot Nature Spot provide families with endless options for wildlife observing. Water wackos can get their kicks at SeaWorld San Antonio - an urban oasis of orcas.
Take a walk around San Antonio's El Mercado district. Kids will love the bright colors that are on display in this open-air Mexican marketplace. Pottery, old fashioned toys, purses and hats may be more attractive to mom than baby, but candy, mariachis and music are bound to impress little ones. Another option is a Rio San Antonio Cruise. Small river boats parade up and down the picturesque river, offering rides to tourists and passersby. If you desire, your cruise can culminate at the Aztec Theater, where kids will be wowed with displays of burning torches, flashing lights and tremendous special effects.
Remember the Alamo
This piece of lore and history makes for a must-see travel destination. This historic mission is also a battleground site, as kids will learn as they venture through the building. Older kids will appreciate the connection to their history textbooks, while little kids will simply enjoy the tour and gift shop. For parents, the Alamo will probably provide a much-needed history class refresher.
