The tour guides at Alamo Double Decker make sure that participants will always remember the Alamo. That's because they whisk them aboard trolleys or double-decker buses for storied tours of the famed site of Texas's battle for independence. They also unveil more than 50 other points of interest, including landmarks in the Texas burg such as the Riverwalk, San Fernando Cathedral, and the Texas Ranger Museum, complete with secret portals leading to John Wayne's hat collection. In addition, tour guides lead riverboat cruises that float down the San Antonio River past boutiques, cafés, and seasonal flowers.
Named San Antonio's Best Museum in the 2010 Nickelodeon Parents' Choice Awards, San Antonio Children's Museum has ushered more than two million guests through its educational wonderland since opening in 1995. Tykes can explore permanent exhibits such as Science City, with hands-on exhibits covering physics, engineering, and how to extract highlighter ink from lightning bugs. In PowerBall Hall, children man simple machines to send orbs up to a lofty cage until the chamber fills and unleashes a spherical torrent down upon the delighted little ones. Other exhibits impart lessons of financial responsibility and proper nutrition in a make-believe bank and market. Membership is calibrated for any permutation of the family unit, and grants amenities including unlimited visits for a year, a subscription to the museum newsletter “Spark!,” and access to more than 40 classes where kids can submit theses on baking-soda volcanoes for peer review.
Witte Museum's 10-acre campus lies on the same banks of the San Antonio River that witnessed the birth of San Antonio and the story of its 300-year history. As an anchor of lifelong education, the museum shares a narrative of Texas Deep Time History and provides visitors with a wide scope of high-quality immersive exhibits and programs centered around science, history, and the heritage of South Texas.
The Robert J. and Helen C. Kleberg South Texas Heritage Center vividly depicts Texas's past, transporting visitors to the days when the vaqueros, chili queens, cowboys, and cattle kings who built Texas roamed its untamed expanses. Visitors can even see Davy Crockett's own fiddle. In the H-E-B Body Adventure, four floors of healthy, interactive adventures engage visitors of all ages, teaching about how the body works and how to stay healthy. By getting a Powerpass, visitors can walk or run down the 13-mile river walk path between the Witte and San Antonio's historic missions, timing the trek along the way to empower the pursuit of sustained health and wellness.

The San Antonio Aquarium collects thousands of animals hailing from the shores of Oregon to the Indonesian Islands. Sharks and rays glide through the shallow water of interactive petting tanks, where visitors can touch their surprisingly soft skin. Lorikeets, toucans, and macaws soar above exhibits filled with exotic amphibians and reptiles in the rain forest area. One exhibit even contains a Giant Pacific Octopus, known to be one of the most intelligent animals in the wild for its ability to solve puzzles and look really studious in glasses. Friday thru Sunday Mermaids are there to interact with guests. Perfect for that selfie photo.
The entire facility is designed to appeal to children and families as a whole. The owners take a particular interest in giving children joy, especially foster children. They themselves hosted 31 foster children in their time, and now provide them with a thrilling––and free––experience at their aquarium.
