Trip Report Crowds and Sun in San Antonio -- a trip report

Jump to last reply

We spent four days in San Antonio over spring break. This was my husband and I (both in our 40s) and our 11-year-old boy/girl twins. We hadn't ever been to San Antonio before, and we just wanted to see the sights and have some nice warm weather!

Day 1: Driving -- all day. It took 10 1/2 hours to get to San Antonio. I'd heard traffic could be bad around Austin, so I wasn't totally surprised, but I actually thought I-35 was very busy from Dallas on south all through Waco and Austin and into San Antonio. We might be a bit spoiled up here though; we usually never have horrible freeway-turned-into-parking-lot traffic here.

Anyway, we stayed at a Drury Inn and Suites. This wasn't on the Riverwalk, but it was in a good central location for us. We had a two-room suite, which was great. The free breakfast had biscuits, sausage, eggs, bagels and yogurt. The pool looked nice, but it was so constantly jammed with people that we never went in it at all.

Next: Day 2 - Six Flags Fiesta Texas
