Fun things to do in San Antonio, Texas, include exploring the San Antonio River Walk, visiting the Alamo, riding the roller coasters at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, and strolling through the San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium. SeaWorld San Antonio offers both wildlife exhibits and rides.

The River Walk follows the San Antonio River. It's a public park open year-round, offering lazy river cruises, restaurants, shops, hotels and attractions. Join a double-decker bus tour to explore the downtown core or take a Segway tour and ride around the River Walk on two wheels, standing up.

The Alamo, site of the historic battle with General Santa Anna of Mexico in 1836, is now a UNESO World Heritage Site. Seen in countless Hollywood productions, including "The Alamo" with John Wayne, it is open for self-guided and guided tours.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas features a variety of rides including the Bahama Blaster, which is one of the steepest water slides operating, and the Goliath, which is an inverted roller coaster with loops and twists. The Iron Rattler, fashioned after the wooden coasters of the last century, is famed for its high-speed dips.

The San Antonio Zoo, in addition to the animal exhibits, offers rides on a vintage steam train, a butterfly house and a carousel made with 60 different animal carvings. Sea World San Antonio exhibits killer whales and penguins as well as water-themed rides like the Great White and Shamu Express.
