Im fairly new to texas and im starting to lose hope on a good job and things to do in san antonio. Me and my husband have gone to lots of movies, resturants, river walk, AUSTIN, ect. but what else is their to do here???? Were in our late 20's early 30's so were not club party people.

There are plenty of nice bars to go to.

The NBA playoffs start soon so head out to a bar and watch the Spurs play and have a few beers.

Also, Fiesta is nearing so that will be a week strait of partying and drinking beer.

Do you have children? If not, the hubby and I are in the same boat!
We don't watch any type of sports or go to Fiesta events or pool or sports bars but we keep ourselves busy with other activities that catch our eye.
We filled our days with doggie related activities and also continuing education (he is studying for a computer certification and I'm taking accounting classes).
Many cool groups on Meetup.com on whatever your interests are. I'm in Amigas in the City and San Antonio Professionals and the Arts plus I have a small dog group on Facebook. The Amigas are always coming up with new and unique events to go out to.
If you can't find it, make it! (That's what I did with a small dog meetup group!)

The zoo, the many parks, go shopping and eat in Fredericksburg, check out local musicals/plays at San Pedro Playhouse, Josephine St. Theatre. Get the kid's involved in music or dance lessons. Go to the coast for the day, eat some seafood. There are family friendly fiesta events, there are over 100 fiesta events. Get involved in service projects. Volunteer at The Humane Society.

My husband and I enjoy walking done the "new" part of the riverwalk by Pearl. Every Sunday they have a band and various food vendors.

There is stuff out there.

if you are bored in TX --especially San Antonio--you must not know how to GOOGLE--there is always something to do in SA

and I would think that finding a job would take up lot of your time--

Go to sacurrent.com and click on the "calendar" day during which you have some free time. Dozens and dozens of events will pop up (especially on weekends), from theater, to live music, to lectures, to nature hikes, to gallery openings, to special film screenings, etc. etc. etc.

There's so much to do in this city. (I always tell people that I only do 10% of what San Antonio has to offer--so why would I want to do only 5% of what Austin has to offer, or .1% of what NYC has to offer!)

Colin Powell just gave a free lecture last week at Trinity, right down my street, and I didn't even know. I caught one free lecture at UTSA last week and missed three or four others. Check it out!
