Beat the Texas heat and take the kids to SeaWorld San Antonio, a massive marine-themed amusement park. Get up close and personal with penguins, dolphins, sharks and sea lions in the walk-through habitats or cool down in the park's pools and water slides. And let's not forget Shamu, everyone's favorite killer whale who never fails to put on a great show. When you notice your fingers are beginning to prune, dry off on one of SeaWorld's many non-aquatic rides (such as the Steel Eel "hypercoaster" or The Great White inverted roller coaster) or grab a bite to eat at one of the dozen concession stands located throughout the park.

SeaWorld San Antonio is located approximately 20 miles northwest of the center city — you'll have to drive to get there. The park's hours of operation fluctuate depending on the season, and day passes cost around $65 for adults and $55 for children ages 3 to 9. You can save some money by purchasing your tickets in advance on the SeaWorld website. For more detailed schedules, exhibit information and more deals, visit SeaWorld San Antonio's website.

#1 Brackenridge Park

When the River Walk seems too busy, seek refuge from the heat and the swarms of tourists in Brackenridge Park. Its 343 acres offer much in the way of relaxation: rustic stone bridges and shaded walkways are perfect for strolling, and the Japanese Tea Gardens and San Antonio Botanical Gardens beckon to botanists. Dress casual so you can take advantage of Brackenridge's jogging trails, golf course and athletic fields, or let your kids take a spin on the carousel and the miniature train. The park also hosts outdoor concerts in the natural Sunken Garden Theater. In and around the park, you'll also find popular attractions like the San Antonio Zoo and the Witte Museum.
