For those of you that have been following me for a while know that I'm from San Antonio, but when I was little I didn't really know all that San Antonio has to offer until Jeff & I would take road trips to visit my family that still lived there. Eventually we would go to the same places and it would get pretty boring, but that's because I didn't really know San Antonio that well! This time Visit San Antonio gave us a San Antonio Passport so that we could experience all that San Antonio has to offer, and believe me there are so many things to do!



We started our day at the Witte Museum because my grandma had never gone, and Mila bear loves Dinosaurs. The look on Mila's face when we entered the Naylor Family Dinosaur Gallery was priceless! If you're looking for indoor places to take your kids this summer in San Antonio this is the place to be especially with the children's Doseum right down the street.




About 3 minutes away from the museums is an amazing garden I called the Sunken garden, but turns out it's called the Japanese Tea Gardens! Fun fact: Jeff always wants to visit these gardens but for some reason we never make it, I'm glad this time we finally did so that Jeff could see how beautiful this place is for himself. For moms with littles, this place isn't totally stroller friendly, there's a lot of stairs but the hike is worth it! 




Our next stop was the Tower Of The Americas because although Jeff & I have visited here before my grandma has never been in the 45 years that shes been here! I honestly couldn't believe it but it was the best feeling ever getting to show my grandma things that she's never seen before! The view of San Antonio from so high up is absolutely breathtaking and it's on my list of must-do things at least once in your lifetime.



 Another must-do thing in San Antonio is take a ride on a river boat on the river walk. This was our first time taking Mila on a ride so it was nice to see her reaction to riding on a boat on the water. The ride is about 30 minutes long and gives you so many facts about San Antonio that not even I knew!





After making all these stops in one day we were all so tired, but we made some amazing memories! When planning your stay in my beautiful hometown remember to pace yourself, it can be a little overwhelming and that's that I didn't get to visit everything. The passport had so many pages filled with so many things to do I wish we had more than a weekend to explore everything.
