McAllister Park

While North Central San Antonio continues to grow in both size and population, the McAllister Park remains firmly anchored as a wooded respite among the concrete sprawl. Best known for its hiking and biking trails, the park attracts hundreds of visitors on the weekends. The trails vary in terms of their difficulty levels, and there are trails for bicyclists too. Other visitors enjoy the covered picnic areas, soccer and baseball fields. Camping is allowed with reservations and a permit from the Parks and Recreation department. The park is also home to a few pavilions, playgrounds and picnic spots.

SeaWorld San Antonio

This theme park is a treat for anyone who loves animals, roller coasters and fabulous shows. Not only does SeaWorld San Antonio have Shamu (the performing killer whale), it also has walk-through habitats where you can watch sea lions, sharks, fish, penguins and flamingos do what they would do in the wild. For those who crave being a part of the action, there is an inverted roller coaster (do this on an empty stomach), along with a variety of water rides. Check out the water-skiing shows and the restaurants, too. Be sure to stick around at night for laser shows and seasonal concerts.

Friedrich Wilderness Park

Trek into this park and you will feel like you have wandered far into the hill country. Only a short drive up IH-10 from downtown, Friedrich Wilderness Park offers 5.5 miles of hiking trails, which vary in terms of their difficulty levels. The park also boasts the most improved handicapped trails in the region. The more difficult trails can be a great workout, while the lower levels offer an easy walk in a beautiful setting. If you choose the highest level and find yourself being passed quickly by kindly older men don't despair—they are likely retired military officers from the nearby army base. In addition to its hiking trails, the park hosts a bird population so diverse that it attracts even hard-core bird enthusiasts. Guided interpretive hikes are available. This place is open evryday from 7:30 a.m onwards
