An Air Force Wedding

An Air Force Wedding
Destination(s): San Antonio

One motivation for this trip was to see the wedding of some good friends. However, the real reason was to spend one last weekend in Texas with people who are soon moving away, to Phoenix and Utah and elsewhere. Good food, good drinks and good times (and some hot friggin' weather) were the mark of the weekend, and while there weren't any crazy adventures had or epic stories made, it's still a memory of Texas I'll have forever. read more about An Air Force Wedding...

San Antonio Family Fun Week

San Antonio Family Fun Week
Destination(s): San Antonio

Don't be overwhelmed. I know that there is way too much stuff in this itinerary to ever be able to do with kids in tow, but I tried to give you several different options. Just pick and choose what you like out of it all, and do it. I don't have kids, but if I did, I know that this would be a kid's dream trip. Thinking back to every kid-friendly activity I loved growing up in San Antonio, this trip would surely be an action-packed kid-pleaser. Mind you, this is a five day trip, so I hope you have lots of endurance. Of course the success of this itinerary will be different if your kids are very young, so this trip is based on ages 6-12. Disclaimer/Apologies to Parents: I don't know if family vacations truly do revolve around kid-satisfaction, but this one does. read more about San Antonio Family Fun Week... Read More
