Is San Antonio A Good City To Visit With Kids?

Yes, San Antonio is an AWESOME city to visit with your kids!

One of the best parts about San Antonio is that, in addition to the amazing restaurants and award-winning breweries and beautiful places to stay, there's a lot of rich history here.

In fact, more than any of the large cities in Texas (like Dallas, Houston, or Austin), San Antonio has a centuries-old history that can still be witnessed in downtown San Antonio  by visiting The Alamo. It dates back to the early 1700s!

So in addition to going to a fun waterpark like Aquatica or getting tickets to an amusement park like Six Flags Fiesta Texas or Morgan's Wonderland, you can find some fun things to do with kids in San Antonio that are culturally enriching. Win-win.

Hemisfair Playground

By the way, the hot climate (see: a local's perspective on the San Antonio weather) in south Texas = lots of water rides, splash pads, pools, fountains, and marine parks.

So when you're visiting San Antonio with kids, be sure that you throw some swimsuits, lots of towels, and a change of clothes in the car. There's a good chance that your adventure will include pool time, or at least a splash pad!

But in addition to summer ideas, we’ll include a bunch of indoor activities for kids in San Antonio, in case you’re looking for kid-friendly things to do in SA  in the winter.

Because YES, it does actually get kind of cold here in the winter months, and those indoor options like SEA LIFE San Antonio and Legoland really come in handy when you're not up for an outdoor amusement park or a trip to a garden or park.

27 Things To Do With Kids In San Antonio

1. The Splash Park and Playground at Hemisfair Park

Hemisfair Splash Pad

The splash pad and playground at Hemisfair is an AWESOME thing to do in San Antonio with young children! Hemisfair Park is an iconic park in the middle of San Antonio that features the tall Tower of the Americas observation tower/restaurant. It's central to the city (in downtown), so it's pretty easy to access no matter where you're staying or where you live in the city. There's paid parking nearby, plenty of space for large crowds, and (best of all) this is a completely FREE thing to do with kids in San Antonio. 

And while older kids will probably love it, the splash pad and playground are AWESOME for young children! If you have toddlers (1-3 years old) and it's a warm day in Texas, you can definitely kill a few hours of time here. 

Hemisfair Park

If you go to the southwest corner, you’ll find an epic splash park and playground.

There are chairs where the adults can lounge while the kiddos run around in the fountains and lots of natural shade. 

And honestly, that's one of my favorite parts about this place: there is SO much shade. They did a great job designing this public space while being aware of the fact that it's a park in south Texas...aka it gets HOT. The sun beats down in the summer months, and that shade is really, really nice in July, August, and September.

50 things to do in San Antonio

Another great thing about Hemisfair? Once the kids are ready for a break, you can order some pizza from nearby Dough Pizzeria. It's on our list of the best pizza spots in San Antonio, but (shhh) it might actually be safe to say it's just be the very best one.

2. The San Antonio Zoo

things to do with kids

More than a MILLION visitors love this one every year! The San Antonio Zoo is so much fun for the whole fam. This zoo is one of the oldest ones in the US. It was founded in 1914, and it sprawls across 35 acres with more than 3,500 animals. (Here are 10 tips for the SA Zoo to help supercharge your visit!)

things to do with kids

In addition to normal zoo stuff, like wandering around and seeing the animals, kids can participate in some interactive events!

Try out giraffe feeding, where you can gaze eye-to-eye with the world's tallest land mammal while you feed it lettuce. It happens nearly every day at the zoo, and children over the age of two are given two pieces of lettuce so they can actually feed these beautiful animals in a shaded, supervised environment.

Or you can book a behind-the-scenes tours with hippos at the San Antonio Zoo. It's a very cool, unique experience because you get to actually feed the hippos...something that's not very common at zoos! Be sure to book this one early, because it is restricted to a certain number of guest. 

The SA Zoo has a ton of other experiences too, like an after hours VIP tour, a Flamingo Mingle, a Lory Landing (yes, the bright birds might actually land on your head!), and a lot of other exciting things that kids of all ages love.

Insider tip from a local: As the zoo is located in Brackenridge Park, you can pair it with a visit to the Kiddie Park for some classic carnival rides or get tickets to ride the San Antonio Zoo Train that makes stops at the Japanese Tea Garden and the Witte Museum. 

Also worth noting: once a month, the San Antonio Zoo offers $8 tickets for San Antonio locals. See the full list of Locals Day offerings here.

Not only is this beautiful 343-acre public park park centrally located in San Antonio (making it an incredibly convenient place to bring your kids), it's also a FREE option and packed with so many fun things to do.

10. Hurrican Harbor San Antonio

50 things to do in San Antonio

Last April 2023, the water park at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, which was formerly known as White Water Bay, rebranded as HURRICANE HARBOR! (Which makes sense, because there are multiple other Six Flags water parks in Texas called Hurricane Harbor. Now they all match.)

Check the website for open days. It's not open every single day in the summer, so if you have a strict schedule, you might want to look into Aquatica (the other amazing waterpark in San Antonio) instead.

Cost: admission is included with your Six Flags membership or platinum pass. If you buy a Six Flags single day pass, you'll need to pay an extra fee to go to Hurricane Harbor - as low as $7.

12. Japanese Tea Garden in Brackenridge Park

Japanese Tea Garden San Antonio

These beautiful sunken gardens in Brackenridge Park are an amazing place to bring your kids! You probably won’t make a full day of it, but you could definitely kill 30-45 minutes letting them climb the steps, watch the koi, and marvel at the waterfall. Here are 5 interesting facts about the Japanese Tea Garden in San Antonio.

Japanese Tea Garden San Antonio

The history of this space is really interesting and definitely worth mentioning to your kids: the space is sunken because it’s an abandoned limestone rock quarry. In 1917, prison labor was used to shape it into the archways, bridges, and islands that you see today.

San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden

And in 1919, a local Japanese-American artist lived in the park and raised 8 children. (Yep..crazy!)

After the artist died in 1941, the family was evicted and the name was changed to “Chinese Tea Garden” to prevent vandalism during the rise of anti-Japanese sentiment during WWII.

The official name was changed back to “Japanese Tea Garden" in the 1980s, but you’ll still see “Chinese Tea Garden” on the sign when you walk in. 

It’s a breathtaking and historically significant space. Admission is free for everyone, 365 days a year.

Cost: free

13. Kiddie Park

Kiddie Park San Antonio

Located in Brackenridge Park right near the San Antonio Zoo, the historic Kiddie Park in San Antonio is a total throwback.

It’s America’s oldest children's amusement park, dating back to 1925. But don’t worry…rides have been updated to keep things safe! There’s an old-fashioned carousel, a Ferris wheel, and carnival games like a milk bottle toss. 

The Kiddie Park relocated to Brackenridge Park in 2019, but still maintains the old school charm and delight of its original location.

Highly recommend the Kiddie Park as a great place for grandparents to bring their grandchildren to as they can relive some of their own childhood memories of carnival rides and fairs while enjoying time with the grandkids.

Cost: $14 for unlimited rides, or $3 per ride
