Update: The contest has now ended, but please feel free to still enjoy the review!

This is the third post of a three part series on the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio, Texas. The first two posts were about the resort itself and the array of activities and amenities available at that resort. This post is dedicated to some of the “family friendly” activities we were able to enjoy while in City of San Antonio. Our trip was very graciously provided by Hyatt and the San Antonio Visitor’s Bureau, and the best part of that is that Hyatt wants to host a Mommy Points reader for a free three night stay as well, including a $250 gift card! More on that at the end of this post.

We had three nights in San Antonio at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa over a long weekend in late June, and while we were excited to experience San Antonio with our toddler, it was hard to peel ourselves away from the resort as there was so much to do there. My advice is to plan accordingly and budget a sufficient number of days in San Antonio to experience both the city and the resort. Even with a long weekend, it was tough to fit everything in while still ensuring our daughter was getting enough sleep at night and during nap times. I would recommend at least 4-5 days if you want to really get the most out of the resort experience and partake in some of what San Antonio has to offer.

However, even if you only have a long weekend, like we did, you can still see and do quite a bit. Here is what we got to experience…..

Downtown San Antonio:

The San Antonio Visitor’s Bureau provided us with tickets to the Children’s Museum downtown, so that was our first stop of the afternoon when we ventured into the heart of San Antonio. If you have never been to a Children’s Museum, then I will let you in on a secret – they are not at all museums in the way that you think of traditional museums. They are better described as fancy play areas where there are some good educational things that you can learn from as well. This museum costs $8.00 for adults and gives a discount for military personnel and educators with ID.ย  Children younger than 2 are free, and you can get a $1 per person discount by going to the museum website and signing up for e-news information.

When you first walk into the museum there is an awesome looking tree with bridges. The museum has lots of different play areas that our kiddo was looking forward to exploring as soon as she walked in.

While she enjoyed all of the exhibits, I think her favorite had to have been the airplane portion of the museum. There was a plane to play in as well as a control tower. Be aware that your little one will not be the only child in the museum, so be ready to have discussions about sharing and waiting your turn. Those are good lessons for sure, but just be ready to have those discussions in the museum……quite frequently if you have a kinda cranky two year old on your hands. ๐Ÿ˜‰

20120719-144536.jpg

After some fun at the museum (that was thankfully very well air conditioned), we headed back out into the Texas summer to show our kiddo the Alamo. We knew she was far too young to appreciate the history of the Alamo, but I thought she might still think that it was cool to see this type of building. We were right, she did think the building was pretty neat, but given how hot it was outside, we really couldn’t stay and appreciate the Alamo for very long. There is some air conditioning inside, but it isn’t cool – it just isn’t as hot as outside. For adults that isn’t as huge of a deal, but it is something to keep in mind if you are going around town with little ones.

20120719-144556.jpg

After the Alamo we sought refuge in the Hyatt Regency on the Riverwalk for a little bit before we continued on to our journey to the Riverwalk.ย  Thankfully, the Alamo and the Riverwalk are very close to one another and are totally walkable, even with a toddler.ย  Little C very much enjoyed the Riverwalk and seeing all the ducks swimming by.ย  Do keep in mind that there are no fences or rails keeping little ones from falling in the water, so be ready to hold hands and stay attentive.

We joined some folks from both the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and the San Antonio Visitor’s Bureau for dinner on a river barge catered by Boudro’s on the Riverwalk.ย  That was a ridiculously awesome way to ride on the Riverwalk and eat phenomenal food at the same time.ย  Boudro’s has a regular restaurant on the Riverwalk where we met the boat.ย  The restaurant was packed when we arrived as it is clearly a pretty popular spot; I recommend making reservations.ย  The food was some of the best food I have had on the Riverwalk – we killed several bowls of guacamole on the boat!ย  The prickly pear margaritas were also amazing.

One of the neatest parts was cruising by an outdoor performance and truly having front row seats as we floated by! I’m not sure if we will ever have an opportunity to have dinner on a barge on the Riverwalk again, but I recommend jumping at the chance if the opportunity ever presents itself to you and your family. Even if you just eat in the restaurant or on their patio, you will still likely have a good experience. You should be aware that Boudro’s is a bit more upscale than some restaurants on the Riverwalk, so the prices and menu reflect that more upscale flavor. We all loved it, but it is just something to be aware of.

SeaWorld and Aquatica:

The next afternoon we again left the resort to head out and experience SeaWorld!ย  Seaworld is literally just minutes from the Hyatt resort, so that makes it very simple to go from the hotel to the park.ย  I visited SeaWorld once a long time ago, and was excited to show Little C all that the park had to offer.ย  SeaWorld has also recently opened a really neat connected water park called Aquatica.ย  The park has pools, rides, and interactive animal exhibits.ย  The chance to cool off in the water is really great considering how incredibly hot it gets in Texas.ย  Just because you have a ticket to SeaWorld, doesn’t mean you are automatically ticketed to Aquatica as well, so do keep that in mind when choosing which tickets to purchase.ย  They also do hit capacity on some days, so I would recommend going earlier in the day, rather than later.

Once we arrived at SeaWorld, we headed left to the dolphin area.ย  You can purchase some fish to feed to the dolphins.ย  If you do so, then the dolphins will come right up to you and you can take some awesome photos!ย  If you do not purchase food then you are technically not supposed to come up to the dolphins on that side of they tank as they are expecting food.ย  We then headed a little further to a large indoor aquarium with all sorts of fish and sharks (and air conditioning).ย  Our toddler loves aquariums, so that was a big hit. I really wanted to then head to see the penguins, but it was on the far side of the park, and frankly our kiddo was just too tired to make it that far.ย  Instead we headed to Aquatica to check it out and see the sting rays.

20120719-213525.jpg

20120719-213536.jpg

In addition to going when our toddler was tired, we also really were not prepared for the heat…..and we live in Texas!ย  Even the ice cream couldn’t survive.ย  It was partially melted when we bought it.ย  Nothing can withstand the Texas sun.ย  If you go in the summer, just be prepared for that reality. There isn’t a bunch of shade at SeaWorld, so if heat is an issue for your family, then go very early in the morning, take breaks, wear sunscreen, drink water, etc.

20120719-213545.jpg

Getting to pet the sting rays was an awesome experience though, so it was worth braving the 100+ degree weather!

We will absolutely have to return to SeaWorld when we are a little more rested and it isn’t quite as hot. We barely scratched the surface on things to do at that park! Before purchasing a ticket to SeaWorld, do a little poking around their website for discounts. I know that teachers (at least in Texas and Florida) and active duty military families can get in for free.

Other San Antonio Activities:

We just did not have enough time to do everything that we wanted to while in San Antonio.ย  If you have kiddos that are into theme parks, then also check out Fiesta Texas while in San Antonio.ย  We could see some massive roller coasters from far away at that park!ย  We also really wanted to make it to Natural Bridge Caverns, and will certainly head there on a future trip to the San Antonio area.ย  My parents have very much enjoyed visiting the old missions in the San Antonio area on some of their trips, so that is another attraction that Central Texas has to offer.ย  The San Antonio Visitor’s Bureau also has tons of info and links to additional attractions and events in the area.ย  It is an area of Texas with so much history and culture, so I very much recommend adding San Antonio to your list of cities to visit…..just remember it is very hot in the summer.

  1. Oh the things to do! What wouldn’t I try to do?!@. I would venture to the River Walk, explore the Natural Bridge Caverns and the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch, and the Alamo to name a few! To top it off, I would indulge in the many wonderful Mexican food restaurants. This is just the beginning!

  3. I’m going to be in San Antonio at the beginning of August; even if I don’t win, this is a great outline of things to do. I’ve never been to San Antonio, and am excited to see Riverwalk, the Alamo, Natural Bridge Caverns, and more.

  4. I would LOVE to take my kiddos to Seaworld! I absolutely love to go there, although it has been quite a few years since I have been (preikids). So much to don see and enjoy in San Antonio!

  5. My cousin is in the air force and is stationed in San Antonio right now. He just got back from a tour overseas, so I would love to visit him while in San Antonio.

  6. Was in SA once before. Had a great leisurely late lunch at Oro near the Alamo after sightseeing there. Would love to go back to Oro!

  7. I would love to go to San Antonio! Riverwalk (especially dinner on a barge), the Alamo, golf, a Spurs game, great food, Sea World…I would do it all. I would love to win the prize, even if my trip would be pretty similar to yours. It’s such a cool place and I’ve always wanted to go.

  8. I would love to spend an afternoon sitting at one of the restaurants along the Riverwalk, drinking a beer and people watching.

  9. I want to take my daughter to the Children’s Museum! She was too small the last time we went. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Sea World is great with young kids. I do agree you should go when it is a tad cooler, though they do have good shaded areas. The Hyatt is nice for getting there and Wal-Mart is close to both if you forget tennis shoes like we did.

  11. My mom wants to visit San Antonio so would probably give it to my parents. Or maybe I’ll take her and leave my dad at home!

  12. I have heard so much about the Riverwalk and the Alamo. I would LOVE to go. My 22 year old just graduated from college and he and a buddy just took a drive across several southern states doing a video documentary of their route and exploring several cities. Their favorite city by far was San Antonio. I have never been but would love to visit. We have a friend that lives there and my husband has been twice. The pictures he takes are always beautiful. It is on my list of places to see.

  13. I would love to see San Antonio with my grandson (and his parents) – this seems like a great way to get the best of the country and the city.

  14. I want to go! I want to go! The Hyatt Lost Pines was great – it would be great to try this out w/ the family.

  15. It looks great – thanks for the detailed review. The Hyatt is so close to San Antonio that this could be a really great vacation.

  16. The wax museum at Ripley’s… Just kidding. A nice day trip from San Antonio is Fredericksburg and Enchanted Rock

  17. I love to spend all of my time at the Hyatt… it’s the greatest, most peaceful, relaxing place for my family and I. We LOVE it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. A return visit to Sea World would be great and enjoying the resort for the first time would be fantastic!

  19. We have visited San Antonio several times. Just recently we stayed at the Hyatt Hill Country and went to Seaworld. HHC was awesome! The staff is great and my kids really loved the lazy river. We love it so much that we are going back next month and bringing family with us. Seaworld and the new water park was awesome.

  20. While in San Antonio, I would love to stay at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort and float in the Rambling’ River. I would also like to take a trip to Sea World to enjoy their new addition – Aquatica. Finally, I would like to venture downtown to the Riverwalk for a tour of the Alamo and a yummy Mexican dinner at Mi Tierra! ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. For me, San Antonio brings backs so many childhood memories of spending quality time with family. Visiting any place in SA is a treasure but I really enjoy the Riverwalk and the Alamo.

  22. As a native San Antonian, I still enjoy the fun things to do when I am there: Sea Word, Fiesta Texas, and the best seafood anywhere: Sea Island Shrimp House! Yum!

  23. My family has never been to San Antonio. We have been looking at planning a trip there next spring and this list of things to do – as well as the other two posts about the Hyatt is a fabulous resource! Thanks for sharing:)

  24. We stayed at Hill Coountry Hyatt twice several years ago when our children were younger. It was always our favorite hotel. I know what you mean about not wanting to leave the hotel. One day we went to Fiesta Texas and were so hot that we only stayed a couple of hours and went back to the hotel. My husband and I went back a couple of years ago by ourselves and enjoyed the Spa and golf. While there we went to the river walk and I must say the river has always been our favorite spot with the Alamo in San Antonio.

  25. A few summers ago, our family splurged for a few days at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort in San Antonio. Our plan was to go to Sea World and other fun attraction. Once we started playing at the resort, the kids didn’t want to leave. We spent our entire trip at the resort and loved every minute of it. We are on a right budget these days but we hope to go back one day!

  26. I really want to go to Aquatica! I’ve heard great things about it, and I really want to make a visit there.

  27. Lovely! I hope to win the 3 day vacation for my beautiful daughter and her fiancee’s honeymoon. He was just laid off from his job a few weeks before the co. he worked for went out of business. He is working so hard to find a good job quickly.

  28. Thanks so much for these great posts! It’s perfect timing–we are planning an end-of-summer trim to San Antonio. It’s especially helpful to see the photos to get a sense of what will be fun for the kids :-).

  29. My family & I had our summer vacation at the Hyatt Hill Country Resort this month! It is definitely an awesome place for families. Unfortunately, when we went with our three kids ( 2, 10 & 15) my 10 year old was sick the whole trip. It also rained just about everyday we were there, so we weren’t able to enjoy everything we wanted to do either. I would definitely love to go back and get to experience more at the resort and definitely make a trip back to Sea World and Aquatica. I’m glad you posted about teachers getting in free because this was something I was unaware of and I paid for myself on this trip. The waterpark is fun for all ages but due to the rain when we went, the park closed for a long time and because of the heat, we just decided to leave. I would also love to take my 2 year old to the Children’s museum! Sounds awesome & I didn’t know they had that. Thanks for sharing your blog! Great info!!

  30. Great review of the city! I’ve been there many times and I’m surprised about some of the things I didn’t know about. I really want to go to Aquatica now. Thanks for sharing!

  31. We lived in San Antonio for 15 yrs and now love to go back to visit! We love the Hyatt as it has entertainment for all of our kids. And we are dying to visit aquatica at sea world as it wasn’t there when we lived there!! I hope I win the 3 nights!!

  32. Love, love, love the Hyatt Hill Country! We can’t wait to go back and enjoy the pool and lazy river!

  33. My family loves going to San Antonio. Lots of great places to eat too. One of our faves is longhorn cafe. Have done sea world many times. Would love to try natural bridge caverns or the safari.

  34. This sounds like the ultimate in vacation spots right here in our back door. Would love to experience it all. The resort looks awesome and with all the surrounding activities to do in the city…. who could ask for more ! A big thunmbs up !!!!!

  35. Reading this post just flooded back all of my memories of the trips we have taken to San Antonio. We would definitely visit SeaWorld again. I have a 17 year old autistic son and beside loving baseball, SeaWorld is one of the most magical places on earth for him. We have been most every year because he loves it so much. We haven’t been in a while because of family constraints. So thanks for blogging about San Antonio because it took me back to a place of happiness.

  36. I want to check out the new Aquatica! Also haven’t been to the Caverns! The resort sounds wonderful also! So many choices!

  37. Fiesta Texas! Love thrilling roller-coasters. Then Alamo, then Seaworld, then Riverwalk, etc etc!

    By the way, is that Little C hand-palming the “phenomenal food?” ๐Ÿ˜€

  38. SeaWorld and Aquatica! Been to SeaWorld in San Diego and the kids loved it! Aquatica would be super fun on a hot day too!

  39. I have several relatives that lived in San Antonio so this is a town in which I spent many holidays. However, we never did the touristy stuff until my kids were born. I think we’ll follow your suggestions and see the sites next time we go. It’s a great town!

  40. I would like to ride the old route of the river boats. And I LOVE Seaworld. I could stay half the day at the dolphin pool. I’m sure my son would like to check out the new Aquatica.

  41. If I go to San Antonio this summer I will try to go to schlitterbahn, the waterpark about 45 minutes north…

  42. One thing I would love to visit in San Antonio is the zoo. The train ride is a favorite for little ones! And I agree that Aquatica is a lot of fun!

  43. I really enjoy going to seaworld. I also enjoy eaTing at a restaurant called magic time machine. San Antonio is one of my favorite places to get away to.

  44. I’ve been to the Riverwalk a number of times and just love it. If I could visit there again we would go to Seaworld. I’ve never been to the one in San Antonio and my wife is a huge animal lover and has never been to any Seaworld type park. Maybe we’ll get there again in the near future. The Alamo is one of my favorite historical places I’ve ever been. It’s such a special place. Glad to see you all had a good time. Also I’ve stayed at the Hotel Contessa and the Hilton Riverwalk and would stay at those again although Contessa was nicer.

  45. I’ve only been to the resort on business and never had time to enjoy all it has to offer. I would love to bring my family down from Boston to see Sea World and enjoy the resort.

  46. I would love the chance to go back to San Antonio, as it has been many years since I last visited. We would have to visit Sea World, as my wife and kids really like animals. I would also like to show them the Alamo and Riverwalk.

  47. Riverwalk and Sea World for sure! The children’s museum is also nice for kid though it’s kinds of small.

  48. The last time we were in San Antonio was pre both knee replacements. We stayed at the Hyatt Hill Country and it was a special treat for my then 7 and 11 yr old kids, since I wasnt able to move about much and do much with them. I am now finally walking well and would love to return with the boys and see Sea World and the new water park, spend one evening having dinner on the Riverwalk and a river cruise and the rest of the time soaking up everything the Hyatt Hill Country has to offer and really make memories with my boys! They have been troopers thru both surgeries!

  49. I’d like to visit family in Boerne and Fiesta that we haven’t seen since 2005, and that my wife has never met. I did enjoy the Riverwalk last time we were there, and would probably spend the remaining time sampling various Mexican restaurants.

  50. I want to take my toddler places around Texas but fear the less kid-friendly places… this sounds awesome! We haven’t been able to take a family vacation yet and are really looking forward to something like this soon!

  51. We’re planning on staying at the Hyatt 4 nights, 5 days. Day 1-resort all day, dinner at riverwalk. Day 2- aquatica in the morning, resort to rest, sea world afternoon. Day 3- San Antonio downtown, resort to rest, undecided evening. Day 4 resort. Our kids, ages 4, 9 and 16 are looking forward to our family vacation.

  52. I would love to take my children on a boat ride around the riverwalk while having dinner like you recommend! It sounds wonderful!

  53. I’d love to visit Seaworld,experience the Alamo,and take in all the touristy places that I have time for. I’d enjoy the southern hospitality at the Hyatt Resort before and after all that sightseeing!

  54. I’d love to go and walk the river walk with our toddler, who loves water, boats and people (or ride a barge though that sounds like it’s not super-typical).

  55. We would most look forward to taking our kids to a part of the country we have never been and relaxing at a beautiful looking resort.

  56. Boudro’s is an awesome dining experience. They make the guacamole at table side. San Antonio is a great place especially during the spring, fall and winter. Would love to go to the Hyatt HC Resort for the spa and get some golf in with the wife and kiddos.

  57. My wife and I try and get down to the riverwalk every few months. It is always an enjoyable experience and a great “staycation” opportunity for us being that we live less than 45 minutes away.

  58. Definitely the Alamo, huge piece of American history and I’ve never been. Would also love to see a Spurs game!

  59. Go back to Seaworld, one days is not enough especially when you get rained on the first vist so have to leave early.

  60. Again – love this because we come to the Hyatt once a year and try to add something to our San Antonio “to do” list everytime we come to make it interesting AND to justify coming to the same place every year! Although we thoroughly enjoyed the riverwalk when we came for our honeymoon nearly 17 years ago, we thought we would have that much fun with our kids….we attempted it not once but twice, with strollers, and swore we would not do it again until we were past stroller phase. This year, ages 5 & 7, no strollers, so we wanted them to see the Alamo – we took the tour – it was blazing hot – even at the end of May! We walked through some touristy stores to buy fun junk and walked smoothly down to the awesome restaurant with the colorful umbrellas that we could never quite get to with strollers, but yet always wanted to have their much loved mexican food – it was pretty good! It was hot eating hot food outside, but we had a great spot right against the river at the turn pike so we enjoyed the scenery. Last year we experienced the Natural Bridge Taverns-very very very humid in there and had to carry our then 4 year old because he was scared and it was slippery and really alot of walking for little guys and we also visited the Wildlife Park – which is AWESOME – not cheap, but clean, beautiful, and even inexpensive food in their “restaurant”. On our next trip to San Antonio we would definately like to visit the new Aquatica Water Park in Seaworld and ride the tube ride that goes in a clear tunnel with the sealife all around you…we would also like to try Fiesta Texas – but probably not for a couple more years, because that park is for bigger kids. thank you for this opportunity – I would love to surprise our kids for an end of the summer bash and reward my husband for all his extra hard work working for this company – and be rewarded – for almost free! Loved the blog…loved hearing about all the neat things other people do at the same places we have visited.

  61. I’d love to have your dessert. My stomach tends to think for me.

    I also liked the Alamo. I’m a sucker for historical locations.

  62. I would have to take my wife and daughter on an awesome dinner cruise on the beautiful River walk followed by a fabulous day at Sea World!

    Oh, we also like to golf as a family so we may also like to play a round of golf!

    Remember the Alamo!

  63. 3 Hyatt Days (to the tune of 3 blind mice)

    3 Hyatt days, 3 Hyatt days
    See how we chill, see how we chill
    We all swim after our inner tubes
    To float on our backs with a joyous grin
    Did you ever see such a thing in your life
    As 3 Hyatt days:)

  64. I’d love to go take the Boudro’s-catered ride on the Riverwalk! Even the regular (food-free) rides are great, but that’d put it over the top.

  65. I think I’ll copy your trip… Seaworld for the kids, Alamo for the husband and Riverwalk to get a prickly pear margarita for myself! I’m ready to go!

  66. We have been to Sea World but not since they have added the new water park- Aquatica! We would love to go there with our three children and would also take them to the river walk. Thanks for taking the time to blog about this resort! We loved the Hyatt Hill Country and you did an excellent job describing it! Very truthful and informative!

  67. The Alamo is a must for Texas history, and then there is also Fiesta Texas, Sea World, and don’t forget the food in San Antonio. There are great restaurants all over town!!

  68. I visited San Antonio a long time ago and even walk along the Riverwalk but dinner on the barge while crusine sounds fantastic!

  69. The Alamo and San Antonio missions would be very interesting to see – for their history and architecture. Visiting the River Walk at night would be a great time. And a nice, relaxing evening of in-room dining would make it a wonderful trip.

  70. We’d burn our innards to a crisp with some red hot tex-mex habanero chilli and then put out the fire with a dip in Hyatt’s spa.

  71. Great post – hopefully our family will get out there next week. We are impusively planning a mid week get away with the kids and this looks like a great spot. Thanks for the review

    BB

  72. I would definately enjoy going to the Botanical Gardens with my 4,7 and 8 year old. Also the Blue Star Art Complex would be a great place to go also. I like focusing on areas that are not always the most ‘touristy’ places because I want to get to know the people and nature of the area I visit. Since I have never been to Texas I would definately focus on finding small local mom and pop shops and restaurants. I want to immerse myself in the Texan lifestyle!

  73. My first visit to SA was in 1997, a young basketball player had recently added to the Spurs: Tim Duncan.

    I would like to go, 15 years later, to show my kids the best of town, and be able to see a much more mature Tim Duncan playing! GO SPURS!

  74. I would visit the river walk! It is fun and magical at night and I am in need of some good Mexican food ๐Ÿ™‚

  75. Sans kiddoes, I’d hit up the missions and drive to the TX Hill Country – Johnson City and Fredricksburg. Great food, amazing scenery. Maybe we’d rent a convertible!

  76. This has really been an interesting short series for San Antonio and the Hyatt Regency Country Resort. Thanks so much for sharing all of this with us.

    I’d love to have an opportunity to visit there. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  77. I’ve never been to Sea World, so that’s my must do in San Antonio. Since I love the extreme heat, it sounds like a day there is just for me.

  78. Well, if I was able to visit the wonderful city of San Antonio. We would definitely need to experience the restaurants, so that we received some authentic Tex-Mex food. My family hasn’t ever been to a proper Seaworld (not that I can remember) so that would also be on top of out list. It just looks like a wonderful city which would be great to have a good time in.

  79. Thanks to a certain comic book about cowboys, my 4 year old son wants to go to “the Almo” but he doesn’t even know what it is. Help me show the boy (and his sister) the real thing!

  80. My wife and I haven’t had a vacation since our son was born 2 years ago. We’d love to explore San Antonio and take our son to Sea World!

  81. San Antonio is a great place to visit. I would love to get back there! Thanks for runnign such a great contest.

  82. I love how your review is all about the family! Which is why my husband and I got the CSP in the first place. We would def go to Seaworld and then get our eating on!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  83. Most definitely Sea World…I went when I was nine months pregnant, so it was less than enjoyable. I remember that the Shamu show made me cry because of the pregnant lady hormones. I have yet to live that one down.

  84. San Antonio looks so different from Houston, my home. Would love to go to the Riverwalk and experience a different atmosphere!
