There are lots of amazing places to road trip throughout Texas, but San Antonio is one of our absolute favorites! There’s something to do for everyone in San Antonio, amazing stops for kids, rich history and fun outings for adults as well.
We live in Houston, so San Antonio is a relatively shorter road trip. If we were to venture over to El Paso we could be driving for over 10 hours. Fun Texas fact? El Paso is actually closer to California than it is to Houston.
We live in a big state.
If you are getting ready to road trip to San Antonio (or anywhere else) you need to make sure you are road trip ready!
To do this, we like to head over to Walmart. You can visit their Auto Care Center to get your car ready, while you shop for all of your must-have snacks and activities for the car ride!
I love that I can do everything in one place. This is so helpful, especially if you are road tripping with kids! Getting everything ready for vacation can be exhausting, but it’s important to make sure your car has a recent oil change and is in tip-top shape before going!
You can find the closest Walmart Auto Care Center near you here.
I also appreciate that they use Pennzoil® High Mileage Vehicle® on cars with over 75,000 miles. I’ll be honest, I had to have this one explained to me, but it makes so much sense now that I know!
Basically, Pennzoil High mileage vehicle cleans out sludge left behind by lesser oils. It also helps to reduce leaks and oil consumption, to keep your engine going strong.
You can see how this would be super helpful before a road trip! You can save so much time and money getting everything in one place at Walmart! AND from June 15- September 28 High Mileage is on rollback (it’s regularly $39.88 on Rollback to $35.88)!
After you get your car all ready for the big trip, load up on snacks and games while your car is getting pampered at the walmart auto care center, it’s time to hit the road!
San Antonio Road Trip Ideas
San Antonio is one of the Big Texas cities that everyone knows a little bit about, of course there’s the Alamo.
Then there’s the iconic riverwalk. It’s a romantic spot to walk with your significant other, a fun place to walk with friends and even entertaining and fun for the kids! It kept my little ones busy for a full morning and they kept asking to go back!
You can also purchase riverboat rides. It was super fun and a good long ride!
There’s also a fire station museum that’s great for adults to see different models and learn about history, while also being very hands on, if you have kids with you!
Of course, there’s also Sea World in San Antonio, but I’ve never been. Next San Antonio road trip, it’s totally on my list. My in-laws took my kids last year and they still talk about it!
There are too many wonderful places in San Antonio to mention here, but if your car is road trip ready, you can hit up a bunch of them yourself before the Summer is done!
