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.

For a serene escape, unwind at Dasa Spa on the Riverwalk or La Cantera Resort & Spa, just some of San Antonio’s most luxurious spas and wellness retreats in popular shopping and dining areas.

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.

Swanky rooftop bars like 1 Watson or The Moon’s Daughters offer stunning skyline views, while spots like The Bunker Mixology and Bar 1919 lean into the speakeasy appeal.

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.

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?

Kick off your culinary journey with authentic Mexican cuisine from Casa Hernán or sip on a glass of wine from High Street Wine Co.

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.

Enjoy the beautiful springtime weather by strolling through the Japanese Tea Garden or exploring the newly opened Civic Park at Hemisfair.

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 more speed is, well, more your speed, find your adrenaline rush at Six Flags Fiesta Texas or SeaWorld San Antonio.

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.
