Top Five Activities for Kids in San Antonio - Family Fun and Entertainment

Top Five Activities for Kids in San Antonio - Family Fun and EntertainmentAs a life-long resident, I have experienced most of the "must-do" kids activities in San Antonio. Now that I am raising children of my own, I am blessed to be able to share some of these same family fun experiences with them. Here are my picks for the top five must-do activities for kids.


SeaWorld of San Antonio is a marine life-based amusement park and tea cup rides for sale. From dolphins to beluga and killer whales to penguins and sea lions, children get a chance to view these creatures, as well as interact with some of chair wave swinger ride. Being both an amusement park and aquarium, Seaworld offers a wonderful lineup of entertaining shows and thrill rides, along with a waterpark and a very special place called "Shamu's Happy Harbor", where kids can enjoy a amusement park swing ride. SeaWorld is a great way to spend a day, or even an entire summer!

Magik Children's Theatre

The Magik Children's Theatre, located in the heart of downtown, is a wonderful place for kids to experience the magic of theatre, while watching some of their favorite children's books be put into action. The theatre, which offers plays year-round, focuses only on popular children's literature. They also offer resources for educators who would like to expand what their students learned in the play, as well as a touring group who performs at schools and events around the area.

San Antonio Zoo

Lions and Tigers and Bears, oh my! The San Antonio Zoo, which is located on fifty six acres near Brackenridge Park in San Antonio, is home to over 3,500 animals, making it one of the best zoos to visit in the nation. The zoo also boasts the Kronkosky Tiny Tot Nature Spot, which is an entire area dedicated to the development and education of young children, allowing children to learn through play and to immerse themselves in the nature all around them.

Witte Museum - HEB Science Treehouse

The H-E-B Science Treehouse, located inside the Witte Museum, offer four stories of fun for kids of all ages. Exhibits include Eco-Science, Body Transformation and the H-E-B Sky Cycle. The H-E-B Science Treehouse, and the other exhibits which the Witte Museum has to offer can make for a morning or afternoon of fun!

Kiddie Park

The Kiddie Park, located on Broadway, has been a staple for San Antonio kids fun since 1925. Recently purchased by new owners and renovated, the park provides a one-of-a-kind experience for family fun. There is nothing that comes close to watching your child's eyes fill with excitement as they ride the carousel or kiddie-sized ferris wheel. From the rides to the music to the treats, the Kiddie Park offers an opportunity for kids to step back into a simple era of fun!
