Outdoor Adventure Awaits in San Antonio this Spring Break

San Antonio, TX (March 7, 2017) – Outdoor fun, theme park thrills and adrenaline-pumping excursions await in San Antonio this Spring Break. It’s not your average town and not your average adventure. Around every street corner and bend of the river there’s history to be made.

Here are just a few ways to live up the great outdoors in and around San Antonio:

1. Kayak the San Antonio River Walk’s Mission Reach
Explore one of the most notable sites in the world by kayak. San Antonio’s Mission Reach is the southern stretch of the famous River Walk. This wildflower-lined section connects four of the city’s five Spanish colonial missions which have recently been designated a World Heritage Site.

2. Spelunk at Natural Bridge Caverns
Explore natural beauty in the recesses of the earth at Natural Bridge Caverns. For first-timers and avid cavers alike, this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience hard to forget. Choose from a cave walking tour or opt for the ultimate underground adventure tour where guests climb, hike, rappel and explore caverns that are thousands of years in the making. Towering stone monuments, glistening soda straws and waves of colorful cave ribbons await.

3. Combine views and an adrenaline rush at Skydive San Marcos
The best Texas Hill Country views just might be 12,000 feet in the air. Take in the scenery aboard a turbine-powered aircraft before diving in with experts from Skydive San Marcos, just north of San Antonio.

4. San Antonio by Trail
Explore San Antonio’s more than 50 miles of hiking and bike trails that run through neighborhoods and downtown – connecting parks, hotels and noteworthy spots including Pearl and the San Antonio museum district. Trail stewards are on site to help with questions and directions.
