I was very lucky years to ago to have the opportunity to visit San Antonio for New Year’s. My sister had been living there with her husband and my husband and I flew there to watch the ball drop in 2000. I instantly loved the area and the local attractions. We were able to eat real barbeque, not the stuff the local restaurants serve here. We went to a rodeo and a country bar – it was so much fun!

Back when my husband and I visited San Antonio, it was just the two of us. However, we are now a family of four. If we were to plan a trip, we would need to be cognizant of the money we were spending. Therefore, we would definitely want to save money wherever we could. I would love to stay at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio because it’s beautiful and located right on the Riverwalk. If I were to build an itinerary, these are some of the local attractions I would love to visit with my family:
Schlitterbahn Waterpark – It can be extremely warm in San Antonio, so I would love to have us beat the heat in the waterpark. The SAVE discount is $2 off a full-price all-day adult & children admission.
San Antonio Zoo – This zoo is home to more than 8,500 animals and 778 species! The SAVE discount is $2 off admission ticket.
Sea World San Antonio – I visited the Sea World in Orlando, FL as a teenager and loved it. I would certainly enjoy returning during this vacation. There are multiple SAVE discounts available for Sea World San Antonio, including a deal for $10 off an admission ticket (up to 6 tickets).
Alamo Sightseeing Tours – You can’t go to San Antonio and not visit the Alamo. The SAVE discount for kids (ages 3-11) is $2 off and for adults it’s $5 off admission.
Natural Bridge Caverns – We don’t have anything like this where I live. You can visit underground caverns with a SAVE discount of $2 off an adult & $1 off a child's Discovery Tour Ticket.
