    Default San Antonio Vacation on a very tight budget, can it be done?





    Thanks
    to a member giving me a code for free child admission to Six Flags, we might be
    able to pull off a small weekend get-away to San Antonio this summer. It
    has been over 8 years since we have been there. I was wondering if anyone
    knew of any specials for Sea World or hotel packages. I have googled and
    found some deals, but I wanted to compare them to what I might get back here.



    We
    are looking at going to Six Flags (since all three girls will be free), and
    hopefully Sea World and staying in a hotel for 2 nights, hopefully one that
    offers a free breakfast. We will be taking our lunch and only eating
    dinner out.





    Thanks
    in advance

    Default San Antonio Vacation on a very tight budget, can it be done?

    We spent the summer in San Antonio last summer - and will be

    volunteering there again this year for two months. We have two little

    girls and we did lots of things last year. We did splurge for season

    passes to Sea World. Maybe instead of doing two parks - you can get

    a two day pass to one park. It took us about three visits to Sea

    World before we took in all the shows and rides. My girls were worn

    out after about 5 hours and so was I.



    Also, there is the Witte Museum - which had a free or reduced day for

    children each week. THey have the "science treehouse" and we spent

    hours there. We also went to the McNay Art Museum and had a picnic

    lunch on the park like grounds. To tour the museum is by donation.

    We also visited the five missions... not just the Alamo. That is

    also free. We splurged on a river boat ride down the river walk area

    at night.



    We also walked around the Little Village and looked at the shops and

    artisians. The public swimming pools are free, also.



    I am open to more ideas for this year... would like to hear from

    others on things to do. Mary

    Holiday Inn EXPRESS offers a free breakfast and, I think, kids under 18

    are free. Their rates are usually a pretty good value and most, if not

    all, have a pool. Since you have 3 kids, you might want to get a roll

    away which is usually a $10 charge. If you really want to save some

    $$$ ask if you can get a fridge in your room(probably another $10),

    that way you can pack some of your food or at least your drinks.

    coupns and deals online. Kathy [img][/img]

    The Witte Museum in San Antonio is free on Tuesday afternoons. They

    have a motorized dinosaur exhibit right now that has a $2 per person

    premium - it's OK, but not worth paying full admission price & premium

    (we took our kids the 2nd day it was open).

    Default San Antonio Vacation on a very tight budget, can it be done?

    Hi Katherine: I have read most of the post about a short get away to San Antonio. There are several hotels on the outskirts of the city, one in particular is the Aloha Inn. they have a pool and there are units that have almost like small apartments. I have not been there for 15 years or so but the last time I was there the hotel was quite big but acess to the city was easy. Gail M
