How to Spend 2 Days in San Antonio

How to Spend 2 Days in San Antonio

With 48 hours to spend in San Antonio, you’ll have enough time to soak up the city’s history, stroll its modern streets, cruise the San Antonio River, and spend the day at one of its star attractions. Here are some ideas for how to plan the ultimate 2-day trip to San Antonio.

Day 1: Downtown and the Alamo

**Morning:**Get your bearings this morning with a sightseeing tour of downtown San Antonio. One of the most popular ways to explore the city streets is by Segway, but it’s also possible to cover more ground (and see neighborhoods such as the Pearl District) on a small-group tour by air-conditioned van. If you’d like to strike out on your own, climb aboard the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus to explore at your own pace. No matter the option you choose, be sure to visit the Alamo.

**Afternoon:**No trip to San Antonio would be complete without some time spent at the River Walk. The sidewalks and footbridges are great for strolling and people watching, but you can learn and see more about this historic waterway by taking a leisurely boat cruise with onboard commentary along the way. 

**Night:**In the evening, take in some of the best views of San Antonio from the Flags Over Texas Observation Deck at the top of the Tower of the Americas. Photos on the deck floor point out important city landmarks, while a 4D theater ride (included in the ticket price) takes guests on a flight across the Lone Star State.

Day 2: Family Fun

**Morning:**San Antonio ranks among the nation’s top family-friendly destinations. Find out why by spending today at one of the city’s star attractions. Thrill seekers might opt for the rides of Six Flags Fiesta Texas, while families with younger kids can spend the day with animals at SeaWorld San Antonio or the excellent San Antonio Zoo.

**Afternoon:**You could easily spend the entire day at some of the city’s kid-approved attractions, but if you’re ready for a change of pace, treat your tastebuds to the taste of Texas during an afternoon food tour. Visit some local favorites to experience for yourself the culinary diversity of the city.

**Night:**As one of the state’s most historic cities, San Antonio is also one of the most haunted. As dark descends, head out onto the streets on a haunted tour to learn about the city’s sordid side. Spend your last night in San Antonio listening to tales of resident ghosts and paranormal happenings as you explore the old town by lantern light.
