San Antonio / Dallas vacation

In December we are taking our 3 kids (5, 3, and 11 months) to DAllas for Christmas to visit family. We plan on driving the 6 or so hours to San Antonio to go to Sea World. We were thinking of trying to find a hotel on the RiverWalk -- I can't find too much info about it though. Is it a safe, family friendly place? I can't even really find pictures, just short descriptions. Is San Antonio in general safe?? Any other tourist-y things we should do while we're there??

  • Not sure about the hotel spot. But when I visit family there we always go to to cooper's bar-b-que. It's awesome!

  • Depends on what part of town you are in. Just do not leave things in your car like your purse or bags that can be seen. Hide electronics..stuff like that. Riverwalk is nice and any hotel on the Riverwalk is going to be nice. Go to like, look up your hotel and check out the virtual pictures and read the guest comments. there are nice places to eat on the riverwalk and a nice mall. I remember it being more of a grown up place. You can also see the Alamo, there is Fiesta TX that may be open for Christmas with lights and things. Go into the Hill Country near San Antonio and go through the little touristy towns for shopping...Boerne..or Medina has an apple festival and all kinds of things apple..not sure when it is. San Antonio is a beautiful area. Have fun..just use common sense when it comes to lock the doors and go to the bathroom with your kids...most ppl in TX are pretty friendly

  • San Antonio is gorgeous at Christmas. We stayed at the Sheraton on the River Walk. Very nice and convenient. So much to do on the River Walk, wonderful restaurants, shopping, boat rides and people watching. We spent most of our time on the River Walk so felt pretty safe, just be cautious. The River Walk is decorated so beautiful. Have fun

  • We lived in San Antonio for many years and yes the River Walk is awesome at Christmas time. We have stayed at the Holiday Inn on the River Walk and it was very nice. Sea World is close by and they have a water park. I don't remember when Fiesta Texas is but that is fun. The Alamo is a good place to go. You'll have a good time.
