San Antonio Attractions

Sea World in San Antonio is the sort of place that brings relaxing fun to the whole family. If you want to cool down and get wet, they have water rides that are a blast. If you want to see fascinating creatures up close, they have all sorts of marine life on display with daily shows that show off the tricks that they teach the animals. There are plenty of restaurants, so you won’t nee to leave the park when you get hungry (although you may feel bad ordering fish on the menu).

Six Flags is the perfect park if you want adventure. Known for its roller coasters and adrenaline-pumping rides, get ready to experience a park that will keep you so busy, you’ll need to come back to make sure you get to ride everything. They are well known for having the largest steel roller coaster in the southwest, Superman: Krypton Coaster, which has a top speed of a whopping 70 miles per hour. Six Flags also has a great selection of family rides that aren’t so fast, like Scooby-Doo Ghostblasters and Little Castaways. However you get your thrills, get them at Six Flags.

The Alamo is one of the most famous historic sites in the entire country. This is the site where Davie Crocket, among his fellow companions, fought valiantly to hold off an invasion of 5,000 Mexican soldiers. They were defeated, but will forever go down in history as one of the greatest battle efforts in history, considering the fact that they were severely outnumbered. Visiting the Alamo will provide you with the opportunity to see actual bullet holes in the walls from the fighting, as well as supplies that were used in the fight. A tour guide will show you around and explain the historical significance of every part of the building. It is a memorable experience that you won’t soon forget.

The Marion Koogler McNay Art Museum is home to a vast collection of 19th and 20th Century European and American art that carries with it vast sentimental value and historical significance. The museum has works from artists like Cezanne, van Gogh and Pablo Picasso, among others. In addition to painting, there is a variety of sculptures and statues that will boggle the mind with their creativity and thought-provoking messages. Young children may not appreciate this museum as much as adults, but it’s definitely worth visiting.

San Antonio Missions National Park once housed 300 residents who were self sustaining on raising their own livestock and growing their own produce. Known as “Queen of the Missions,” this national park is located just south of the Alamo and is a great example of the religious culture that once existed in San Antonio. The building are fascinating, especially with their methods and styles of construction; it is truly unlike anything you’ve probably ever seen. There are five missions in total, the most famous being the Alamo itself, while the other four are not as well known but possess just as much rich history.
