Located about 17 miles northwest of downtown San Antonio, Six Flags Fiesta Texas is a year-round destination for families and adrenalin seeking travelers. The park's more than 50 attractions run the gamut from coasters to slides to pools to go-karts. With shopping options and an assortment of restaurants to boot, it's not hard to spend an entire day (or three) at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

Past visitors particularly appreciated the water park at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, which provides relief on scorching summer days. But, a handful of reviewers note with disappointment that the water park was closed during their visit, so be sure to check beforehand.

The hours at Six Flags Fiesta Texas can change based on day and season. During the summer months, the park is open from daily at 10:30 a.m. with varying closing hours. As the weather gets colder, Six Flags Fiesta Texas closes except on and around weekends. Similarly, the water park opens from late April to early September and is operational from noon to 7 p.m. Single-day tickets start at $62.99 if they're purchased online, while the price at the park's gate starts at $82.99.

#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 Garden and San Antonio Botanical Garden beckon to botanists. Dress casual so you can take advantage of Brackenridge's jogging trails, golf course and athletic fields. 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.

Past visitors appreciated the park's train, which runs through the zoo and offers an excellent opportunity to get around the large area. They also recommend bringing some bird seed to feed the ducks that float down the San Antonio River.
