5 More Reasons to Visit San Antonio This Summer

San Antonio, widely recognized as a top travel destination, is introducing even more reasons to bring the whole family to the Alamo City. Interactive world-class exhibits, close encounters with dolphins and giraffes, and a high-rise ride at a one-of-a-kind theme park are just a few of the new attractions visitors can find in San Antonio this summer.

In a city filled with new and tried-and-true attractions, highlighted below are just five of the new experiences visitors can have this summer in San Antonio:

  • Enjoy High-Flying Thrills: Six Flags Fiesta Texas‘ Fiesta Bay Boardwalk brings three new rides to the theme park. Guests will find themselves looping, spinning, and soaring as they experience the new high-adrenaline thrills on Fireball, featuring a massive 7-story looping frenzy; Hurricane Force 5, where riders take on the power of a storm and swirl round-and-round while soaring high into the air; and Spinsanity, the ultimate whirling adventure for daredevil riders.
  • Reveal the Hidden Worlds of the Maya: The story of one of the most sophisticated and powerful civilizations of all time is being told in the largest exhibition to be brought to a San Antonio museum in the city’s history. The Witte Museum‘s “Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed” is the first exhibition at the museums’ new Mays Family Center and brings together hundreds of authentic artifacts displayed in more than a half-dozen immersive and hands-on environments.
  • Ride on a One-of-a-Kind Ferris Wheel: Morgan’s Wonderland, the world’s first and largest theme park designed with special-needs individuals in mind and built for everyone’s enjoyment, unveils its new Whirling Wonder Ferris wheel this season. This five-and-a-half story ride along the shoreline of the park’s catch-and-release fishing lake can accommodate guests with and without special needs.
  • Swim with Dolphins: SeaWorld San Antonio‘s added attraction, Discovery Point, is the only interactive dolphin experience in the state of Texas. Discovery Point is the largest single capital investment in the park’s 27-year history, doubling the size of its former dolphin habitat. The attraction transports guests to a lush, tropical setting with opportunities to swim with the dolphins and also see them swim and play in a new way through a floor-to-ceiling, panoramic underwater viewing area.
  • Watch The Battle of the Alamo Come to Life: One of the most pivotal battles in American history comes to life through “Battle for Texas: The Experience,” a 22,000-square-foot “edutainment” adventure in the Shops at Rivercenter. This interactive experience features more than 250 never-before-seen Alamo artifacts and heart-racing multimedia re-enactments of the 13-day battle – allowing visitors to experience the Battle of the Alamo from the perspectives of the mission’s defenders and the Mexican army.

Best Family-Friendly Spring Break Destinations

Spring Break Destinations: Most of the time when you think of “Spring Break” you imagine hoards of 20-something hell-raisers as far as the eye can see. Everyone deserves a spring break, especially families. We’ve rated the 5 best “family-friendly” destinations for 2014.

1. Orlando, Florida

Now, be honest. Can you really list family friendly destinations without including Orlando. More specifically, we’ve selected the International Drive area. Situated in the heart of tourist country, “I-Drive” has literally hundreds of family-friendly lodging, dining and attraction options, with more on the way.

You’re a short drive from Disney, Universal Studios and Seaworld, not to mention dozen of minor attractions within walking distance. Wet and Wild, Dave and Busters, Titanic – The Experience, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, helicopter rides, the list goes on and on.

Recommended Family-Friendly lodging in Orlando, Florida:

2. San Diego, California

If you’re looking for a day at the beach, San Diego is the place. With more than 70 miles of beach, the kids will have a ball. But San Diego is so much more than just beaches. Balboa Park offers a collection of museums you’ll not soon forget. The whole family will love a visit to the San Diego Zoo or Seaworld.  San Diego is a city small enough to feel manageable jet large enough to offer plenty of entertainment and lodging.

Recommended Family-Friendly lodging in San Diego:

3. Hilton Head, South Carolina

While Myrtle Beach has the college spring breakers, families head further south down the coast to Hilton Head, a 12-mile-long, five-mile-wide island with 14 miles of sandy beaches, world-class golf courses, and more than 100 miles of bike paths. If you’re looking for peace and quiet, Hilton Head is just for you.

There are plenty of accommodation options here, from renting a private home to family-friendly hotels to beachside resorts. Hilton Head is a great base for exploring the area… a day trip to Savannah or Charleston will give you a taste of the Old South.

Recommended Family-Friendly lodging in Hilton Head:

4. New York, New York

Who says Spring Break needs to warm weather and sandy beaches? Why not visit the city that never sleeps and show the kids a great time. There is not another place on the face of the earth that has as much to see and do as the Big Apple. Museums, landmarks, entertainment, restaurants, parks, shopping and sports… do you really think you’ll be bored?

Must do’s include the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Times Square, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Natural History, Museum of Modern Art. The kids will get a bit of education without even knowing it.

Recommended Family-Friendly lodging in New York City:

5. Washington, DC

Washington in the spring is an excellent spring destination. The weather is great for exploring this city and all it has to offer.  Take the kids and discover the history and culture of downtown DC. From the Smithsonian museums to national monuments and memorials, everything is relatively close. Just hop on a bus and take a tour of the city’s sites for an American history adventure.

Be sure to take a walk through Georgetown, a historic waterfront location that’s always fun and exciting. Each spring the very popular Cherry Blossom Festival takes place. The blossoms are simply breathtaking and definitely worth a view.
