Hey! So my family and I are heading down to San Antonio (Universal City area) for a week at Christmas. We were hoping to find some fun, family friendly, holiday themed things to do. We're taking the kids to Sea World and most likely Morgan's Wonderland. But, are there any "must see" things for the area around that time? We'll be there the week leading up to Christmas. The kids are 5 and 10.

Thanks in advance!

The Riverwalk is very nicely lit during the holiday season.

Man I am not even thinking that far ahead. I don't even want to think about Christmas yet but I know the stores will start stocking the shelves in late Oct with Christmas merchandise.

I wonder if Ed Clark's Christmas Light House at 14106 Short Horn drive is still around. I never got to see it and wonder if the lights are still up now that he passed away last year. If it is still in operation, that will be one place to take the kids.

Yes, the Riverwalk is a must-see, especially during the Christmas season. And I might add, and am willing to take a beating for it, Mi Tierra is decorated and then some for Christmas and even though it's a tourist spot, it's fun. Just the bakery case alone should make kids happy to look at. I'm just saying, if you're going to be down there anyway I would at least peek in, even if you don't want to eat there.

Here's a calendar of events for the Riverwalk.

Oh trust me! I understand about not thinking about Christmas yet...however, I did just venture in to Toys R Us for a birthday gift this weekend in Maryland. One side of the aisle had infant Halloween costumes while the other had Christmas ornaments. And the far end of the same section had pool toys on clearance. Ha!

Thanks about the Riverwalk! We'll check it out. Why woudl you take a beating for Mi Tierra? I'm not familiar
But I'll look it up. My boys love Christmas lights!

Because the locals for the most part don't like the food. It's not horrible, it's just that there are better Tex Mex places to choose from. As I said, though, it's a fun place to visit at least once. I hope you enjoy your stay in San Antonio!

The food at Mi Tierra is nothing spectacular, good, but nothing to write home about. However, their bakery is fantastic and worth the trip.
