Overview

Need a day away to relax, refresh, renew? Just get in your car and go! Day Trips from San Antonio is your guide to hundreds of exciting things to do, see, and discover right in your own backyard. Explore places you never even knew existed—many free of charge and most within a two-hour drive of the Alamo City.

Do something Old World: Grab your lederhosen and head to New Braunfels in November for the town’s famous Wurstfest—one of the country’s largest German celebrations.
Do something batty: Watch the nightly migration of millions of Mexican free-tailed bats as they leave their roost under Austin’s Congress Avenue Bridge.
Do something educational: Relive Texas frontier days with a visit to Presidio La Bahia—the oldest fort in the West, the only fully restored Spanish presidio, and the only Texas Revolution site with its original appearance intact.

With full trip-planning information, you can make the most of your time off and rediscover the simple pleasures of a day trip.
