The Go Rio San Antonio Riverwalk Cruises are a great way to see the city of San Antonio. They run every 15 minutes from 9 am to 10 pm, making it easy to fit into your schedule. The best time of year to go on a riverboat cruise is in May when temperatures are perfect and the flowers are in bloom. Visitors are sure to get stunning views of the cityscape and plenty of chances for photos – not to mention an enjoyable way to spend an hour or so while visiting this beautiful town. Nothing spoils a relaxing cruise like gas-powered boats polluting the water, so they only use quiet electric boats steered by friendly captains who know how to keep everyone entertained with stories about the city's history and fun facts. Additionally, each boat can cruise up to 40 passengers at a time, making it ideal for families or groups of friends who want to explore together but don't want anything too fancy or formal.

SeaWorld San Antonio
Schedule
Sea World is the best way to get up close and personal with sea life and May is the best time to be here to enjoy spring weather without summer crowds. At Sea World, watching the exhibit of Atlantic Bottlenose dolphins is a blast. There’s even an opportunity to feed one during our visit! There’s also a penguin exhibit with more than 100 kinds of penguins with room for swimming and playing. And who knew that swimming with some of the marine life was an option? There’s not just exhibits to view, but also roller coasters to ride and shows for kids of any age to watch. The Great White is a wild roller coaster that got going up to 50mph and the entire family loves the kids’ animal show. Plus, don’t get me started on the food. Fantastic! Without a doubt, Sea World in May is the way to go for a great vacation.

San Antonio Haunted History Ghost Tour
Schedule
San Antonio is one of my favorite places to visit in the great state of Texas. Known famously for the historical Battle of The Alamo, this city’s rich history will entice all history buffs searching for new adventures. One of which is the spooky San Antonio Haunted History Ghost Tour, a narrated walking tour filled with all the paranormal folklores that plague the city. With its reputation for being one of the most haunted places in America, this ghost tour will unveil gruesome stories, while walking through historical sites. They include the Spanish Governor's Palace and Menger Bar, which are known for elevated levels of paranormal activities, and The Alamo, home of the most notorious and bloody battle in US history. I am traveling back to San Antonio this May, and I can’t wait to immerse myself in this ghostly adventure. May is the best month for this tour as it’s the cusp of the Summer, where the city comes alive buzzing with concert-goers looking to have a good time, and this tour will offer a perfect escape into the realm of the supernatural.
