Spring in the Alamo City marks the beginning of new adventures and exciting excursions around the most vibrant cities in Texas. Whether you’re looking for an adventurous expedition or a sophisticated getaway, the options for activities and events are endless.
Let us help you treat yourself to a week of fun and excitement with our Spring Break guide for adults, broken down by your interests and certified by locals.
Get Ready for Rest & Relaxation Retreats
Spring break isn't just for students looking to party; it's also the perfect time to take a well-deserved break and rejuvenate.
Or memorialize your visit with something more permanent at Beauty Haus — perhaps even a tattoo? And before you go, grab a cup of joe at its downstairs neighbor, Vice Versa Coffee, which regularly hosts karaoke events, poetry nights, and adult spelling bees.
San Antonio's Vibrant Nightlife Scene
The stars at night aren’t the only things big and bright deep in the heart of Texas; venues like 1902 Nightclub bring live DJ performances with fabulous light shows to the historic St. Paul Square.
But don’t discount new nightlife staples that have made their way to the 210, like Be Kind & Rewind and the soon-to-open Barbarella. Or check out Halycon Southtown for a laid-back atmosphere, with or without the booze. There really is something for everyone.
The Food & Drink Mini-Guide
Celebrating gastronomy is a year-round affair in the Alamo City. It’s not difficult to find a reason to take in the flavors of San Antonio. So why not extend your foodie foray into spring break by checking out all the new restaurants?
Spots like Tokyo Cowboy and Leche de Tigre are serving up international cuisine with a twist, while SATX staple Rosario’s continues to offer the same menu locals love at its new location. Check out a whole slew of new offerings at Make Ready Market and the adjacent Idle Beer Hall & Brewery, or treat yourself to a visit at James Beard Award Semifinalist Mixtli, currently in the running for "Outstanding Restaurant."
Other Must-Dos and Go-Tos
Of course, no guide is complete without activities worth dedicating your week to. First, let’s talk about outdoor escapades.
San Antonio also has a vibrant outdoor art scene, with numerous murals and galleries waiting to be explored. Check them out with a Mural Ride Bike Tour, or head indoors for more at the McNay and San Antonio Museum of Art.
If you’re ready to do some damage to that wallet, hit up all the spots locals are shopping at. And don’t forget to schedule a visit to the River Walk in your itinerary for even more shops, restaurants, and picturesque views as you close out your week in the beautiful Alamo City.
