Spring break

Explore Wildlife!🐍

📸: Sea Life San Antonio

A visit to a local zoo or an aquarium is always a great idea for a fun day spent with the kids! Explore wildlife from around the world and learn something new about the many creatures that roam Texas and other areas. A Spring day is perfect for an adventure to see wildlife and there are plenty of spots in and around San Antonio to not only look but have a hands-on experience with different living creatures! 

Visit the many mammals living at San Antonio ZOO for a one-of-a-kind experience or head to the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch for an opportunity to drive through and feed a safari of animals. Heads up, there may be animal heads in your windows poking around for a treat! The Animal World and Snake Farm is another great opportunity to check out and pet cute animals as well as get in close proximity to different amphibians and snakes! This is a slither of a good time!

If you’re wanting to visit some marine life, there are two great spots in San Antonio! Sea Life San Antonio is the spot of the only Ocean Tunnel in the city where you can be immersed in an aquarium of live fish and marine life! Here you can also touch sea stars and be mesmerized by the beautiful fish of the ocean! Head to the San Antonio Aquarium for a one-of-a-kind experience of petting mammals like lemurs or feeding sharks and stingrays! This spot is great to interact with many animals and offers plenty of fun activities for kids.


Spring Break

Have a Hands-on Experience!🧪

📸: The DoSeum

Just because the kids are out of school doesn’t mean they can’t learn a little! We love books but these spots are great for a hands-on experience where kids can learn through play as well as explore and test their knowledge! These spots are a great time for any age and perfect for a Spring Break day where parents or guardians can monitor or have fun with their kids. 

Head to the DoSeum for a museum experience unlike any other! This museum is all about hands-on and pushes kids to explore and learn things through playing and exploring the museum grounds. There are plenty of activities here and even adults will enjoy playing with the different installations. If your kid is a science lover, we recommend the Science Mill! This spot has more than 50 exhibits made to allow kids to explore the world of science, technology engineering, art, and math with plenty of exciting things to do. 

If you’re wanting an out-of-museum experience, visit the LEGOLAND Discovery Center for kids to navigate the building blocks and explore millions of bricks as well as 12+ attractions and rides! This is an experience for any lego lover and a great one at that. If you like the idea of clues and mystery, head to the Escape Room to test your kids and yourself while you try to break out before time’s up! 

Hands-On Fun! 🙌

Spring Break

Visit a Park 🌳

📸: Brackenridge Park

Get your ducks in a row and head to a park for all-day outdoor play! San Antonio is home to many beautiful parks and Spring Break is the perfect time to visit! Check out the local wildlife, swing on the playground, or picnic by a pond! This is a great way to spend the day, soaking up some sun and enjoying the company of your kids. 

Yanaguana Garden at Hemisfair is a great park in the city with plenty to do with a playground, splash pad, dog park, and small businesses nearby serving up food and treats! MacArthur Park is great for a big playground and pavilions with BBQ pits if you’re wanting to grill something up for a fun lunch outdoors. On a warmer Spring Day, head to Pearsall Park for its two splash pads where kids can fight the rays or a skate park for those kiddos who love to board. 

Whichever local park you choose, you’re sure to have a fun-filled day breathing in the fresh air and exploring the outdoors.
