We go on Sunday when they have their specials and it is loads of fun for kids and kids at heart. Best age would be 6 and up. Large area for tag and running around. Has games outside to play and limited menu for snacks.

Crescent Bend Nature Park

Reviewed By Joseph R - Converse

Crescent Bend will never be mistaken for McAllister Park, but if all you want to do is take a walk among nature, Crescent Bend does just fine. The trails are decent enough for the occasional walker. Serious hikers won't be impressed though. My wife likes the park during the week for visiting the two bird blinds and the nice variety of birds that can be seen there. For folks living in the Converse, Universal City, Live Oak areas it's still pretty handy for the last minute plan.

Bussey's Flea Market

Reviewed By TortolaLvr2009 - Osage Beach

I brought my family to Bussey's as a fun weekend activity to see if we could find any buried treasure. We found a little bit of everything. Thrift store like items, antiques, brand new items, handmade and crafty booths.....there was something for everyone in our family. I enjoy the size-we were there for two hours and the girls only made it to half of the booths. Good weather will equal a busy parking lot so it is better to show early. Great little attraction!

Live Oak Main City Park

Reviewed By Stephanlee1 - San Antonio, Texas

Growing up this park filled a great deal of my leisure time particularly the fishing at the pond and lake. There was really not much to this place when I first started coming as a child. By the time I left high school it had been improved significantly and over the years the city has done an amazing job making this place extremely nice for everyone to enjoy a multitude of things.

Situated on 75 acres this park boasts:
A football field, basketball court, three baseball fields, multiple playgrounds, two restroom facilities, a lake, a pond, picnic areas, bbq pit, gazebo, and a large covered open air pavilion. This park is also handicapped accessible.

Adjacent to the park and essentially considered an extension of the park is one of the best "frisbee golf" courses I have ever seen which extends through the forested areas for what I would guess to be well over a mile if not more.

Some extra special bonus's at this park. If you are off to the side of the park near the frisbee golf area during the right hours you may spot families of deer that do not spook all that easy. The other bonus is that on the backside of the earthen dam you can slide down on pieces of cardboard like a huge slide.

Historic Texas Tours - Day Tours

Historic Texas Tours offers guests a variety of tours. We specialize in guided tours of all 4 San Antonio Missions and restaurant tasting tours (aka Foodie Tours).

Reviewed By Linenminnesota - Minneapolis, Minnesota

This is the only tour of the missions that you should consider. After carefully looking at all the missions tours available, I picked this one for our first trip to the San Antonio area. We wanted to learn about history of the missions and be able to see as much as possible. We booked it with Shelly and she made sure that we had our tour, on time, picking us up at our hotel, giving us the details of the history of the missions, along with updated interesting details about the missions since their beginning. At each stop we were in awe to be walking along these pathways. Shelly's professionalism and knowledge made this historic tour of the missions one we will never forget. She was also able to drop us off at our next planned stop and give us some advice for a lunch stop. (Which was excellent!)

Regal Cinemas Live Oak 18 & RPX

Reviewed By Traveltheorient - San Antonio, Texas

Initially I was disappointed because contrary to what they advertised, they didn't have any hearing assistive devices for me. (I was told none of the worked). After I complained to the manager, it turned out they DID work but the person checking them didn't know what he was doing... I was given a couple of passes and the manager handled the situation in a very professional manner... BTW, I took my grandkids to see "The Lion" and it was an excellent movie....

Woodcrest Park

Reviewed By Heather F - San Antonio, Texas

This park is definitely a hidden gem! I just learned about it after living in the area for 3 years and it is our new favorite playground (and we have visited a TON). I love that the play area is not right by the parking lot and since it is covered in artificial turf, everything looks so pretty and green (and I don't have to worry about my toddlers throwing mulch or getting it stuck in their sandals...big plus!). The play area is huge, with shade and even a shaded area with fitness equipment for the adults. There is a playscape for younger kids and one for bigger kids, so it's perfect for my 2 and 3 year old. There are nice bathrooms, walking trails with lots of trees and picnic tables. It's really a lovely and peaceful area for everyone to enjoy- I highly recommend it!

Morgan's Wonderland

Reviewed By Ellen F - New York City, New York

Morgan's is one of the best ideas and parks I've experienced. The planning and care is so detailed and fun. It's like walking through a wonderful story. The Monarch School is very impressive too. I wish they had parks like this in every state.
