Spring Break is almost here and the sounds of pencils dropping and lockers closing can’t come any faster. As your children’s exams creep nearer, your mind is already on that colorful cocktail you’ll be enjoying the second Spring Break begins.
If you’re still looking for the perfect place to enjoy a quick weekend away with friends or family, look no further than San Antonio, Texas.
Here are the top five reasons San Antonio is THE place for Spring Break:
Location: Located smack dab (and down a bit) in the middle of Texas, San Antonio makes for a relatively painless road trip from all major Texas cities and an even shorter plane ride! Averaging about a 3 hour plane trip from the East and West coast, you’ll be in good ‘ol Texas before you can say “Yeehaw!”
Weather: San Antonio’s 2012 winter season was anything but harsh, meaning a warm climate for the majority of the year. Averaging around 74 degrees in March, make sure you pack sunscreen and flip-flops to sport while walking the streets of downtown San Antonio.
Looks pretty good, right?
Attractions: San Antonio isn’t slacking on attractions. We’ve got the Alamo, Sea World, Fiesta Texas and the Riverwalk. We have 7 professional sports teams including NBA Champions, the San Antonio Spurs, and NHL team, the San Antonio Rampage. The city is also proud to have over 20 museums! There is something to do for everyone.
History: San Antonio became a city in 1718 and has been a major hub of economic and cultural action ever since. This area of Texas has seen its fair share of battles, historical figures, and rulers. From the Native Americans to the Spaniards to the Germans, San Antonio prides itself on the blend of European, American and Mexican culture that shapes our city’s identity.
Food: We also have some pretty awesome food, too. Especially Tex-Mex! People from all over the country, and the world, travel to San Antonio to take a bite out of our amazing Tex-Mex cuisine. You’ll find hundreds of restaurants along the Riverwalk and around the city that serve up great food every day. Don’t forget to save room for dessert.
