@SAVEinSA ~ Sightseeing San Antonio by Land, Water, and Air

So visiting San Antonio is one thing but getting to know this city was something else.  It has been 3 years since we last visited as we were passing through.  And we only got the chance to visit the Alamo.  And this time I wanted to see all San Antonio had to offer, check out our Summer Day in San Antonio.

Our day started out with a tour of San Antonio on the Alamo Trolley.  Park your car and take a ride.  I recommend doing this tour first.  It is the best way not to get lost.  And if you have the Trolley Hop Pass, you can jump on and off all day long from place to place, no need to drive around.

We then headed to Louis Tussaud's Wax Works where we got to take pics with lots of celebs.  I think this is the closest we will get.  Lil Bit even got a pic with the wax President Obama. 

We were amazed at Ripley's Believe It or Not!  Next, we headed to the Buckhorn Museum

We had so much fun doing the topsy turvy challenges.  Funny story is I was trying to take a picture of my husband doing this challenge.  He is suppose to do a pull up and his legs will go in the air by themselves.  As I am trying to take the pic, it gets to me and I go slamming into the wall.  I was laughing with tears coming out of my eyes.  My husband didn't even know what happen to me.  All he heard was me slamming into the wall.  I could not stop laughing.  Yall got to go here to understand what I am talking about.   We had so much fun and learned a thing or two.  The Texas Ranger Museum was next.

We are not the only ones who have walked these halls.  This place is huge and with alot to see.  Mommy and Daddy got some history and fun in and now it was Lil Bit's turn.  We headed to the San Antonio Children's Museum.

We explored the city by land and now we needed to hit the water on the famous San Antonio Riverwalk.  We took a boat tour and checked out all the new beautiful additions. 

And we ended the day in the air at the Tower of the Americas where we could see all of San Antonio.

Picture courtesy of @SAVEinSA There was a band playing music outside, kids playing at the sprinkler area, and people enjoying themselves sitting out while their food was being cooked on an outdoor grill.  What a way to end our day.  There was so much to see and not enough time for us to squeeze it all in.  San Antonio is so full of our history.  It is a place I recommend for families to visit. 

***Disclosure-Thank you to the City of San Antonio Visitors Bureau, @SAVEinSA, and every single one of these places we visited for our complimentary entrances, tickets, and/or passes.  These are my honest thoughts and personal snap shot pics of our wonderful trip.

I've only been to San Antonio once and loved it... the riverwalk was one of the coolest places I have ever visited.

It's fun seeing someone enjoying adventures in their own backyard. I need to do more DC sight-seeing and visiting... Been here 28 years and still so many rocks to turn over! Thanks for the insider tips.

I went to San Anton once when I lived in the RGV and I LOVED IT, especially the magical River Walk. BTW, I love the hop on/hop off trollies. Did it once in DC where I live and had so much fun!

Thanks for sharing this! Looks like you had tons of fun. Although, San Antonio must be really hot in the summer no? Maybe I'll plan a visit in the fall or winter ;)
