San Antonio is one of the nation's top vacation destinations


Ways to cool off! The San Antonio area has plenty of swimming holes where you can cool off in style, from laid-back oases tucked into parks that will make you think of childhood summers to exciting theme parks that'll get your adrenalin pumping.

Your choice. What's your mood?


Parks & Public Pools

San Antonio is sprinkled with parks and public pools, where a refreshing douse is just a splash away.


One that is evocative of sleepy summers is the lake-pool, surrounded by stately cypresses, at historic San Pedro Springs Park , the nation's second-oldest city park. This swimming spot is located in the bed of an original lake fed by springs. There is no admission fee. Dozens of other pools can be accessed through the San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department 's website.


Water Parks

Getting thoroughly and unabashedly wet in untold ways seems to be the goal at San Antonio's many water parks and attractions.


SeaWorld offers two choices: sit back and get splashed by Shamu or do it yourself at the Texas Splashdown's five-story flume or the 1800-foot Rio Loco. The Water Park at Six Flags Fiesta Texas is equally devoted to getting you wringing wet with rides such as the Big Bender—there's a 50-foot drop—and White Water Canyon. Also, don't miss the massive wave pool carved into the shape of Texas.


Splashtown has a five-story tower for twist-and-turn thrills, and water volleyball. At Schlitterbahn in nearby New Braunfels, an entire water empire awaits with rides and activities for the whole family.



Just a short drive away, in the Texas Hill Country, numerous crystal, and cold, rivers lace the tree-lined countryside. During the summer, tubing and rafting are a must do.


The Guadalupe River has numerous outfitters to equip you for tubing and rafting under oak and cedar canopies. Upstream is Canyon Lake , billed as the “water recreation capital of Texas,” which has more than half a dozen shoreline parks and 22 boat ramps to put swimming, skiing, camping, hiking, fishing and more all within an easy one-stop reach.


Closer to San Antonio is Guadalupe River State Park , where activities range from tubing and canoeing to fishing and camping. The park recently opened a horse trail that's open to mountain biking.


The tube chute on the spring-fed Comal River is “the longest in the world” and happens to be on Texas' shortest river. Blanco State Park , within the historic town of Blanco, offers swimming plus tube and canoe rentals. And cool water flowing over limestone outcroppings is the draw for the cypress-shaded Frio River .


Inside Strokes

For a little more structured wet time, like swimming laps, lessons or water aerobics, you can head indoors.


The Olympic-size San Antonio Natatorium is one the city's aquatic crown jewels, and charges a modest $2 for adults and $1 for children, with private and group lessons and water aerobics also available.
