Landa Park

Park that features paddleboats and train rides; great for families.

Reviewed By kotam32 - Pearland, Texas

We searched for the top things to do with kids in New Braunfels and Landa Park came up. My kids loved the train which was only $3/rider. My daughter loved it so much she went back for another trip. It weaves through the park, highlighting all the areas. We tried to rent the paddle boats but it was an hour wait. There were three separate playground areas for the kids. Plenty of space for my son to start a pick up soccer game. Although we didn’t use them there were several pavilions to rent with grills. There is an aquatic complex that would be great during the summer. One of the pools is even spring fed. It the perfect place for my two kids to get outside and play after being in the car all day.

Retama Park

Reviewed By Heather9876 - Mathis, Texas

This was a great first experience to watch live horse racing. Their web page and Facebook pages give you some info. Here's what it doesn't say: Live Races friday & saturday during certain months, Free parking (before 5:15pm at least), $2 entrance and may sit Anywhere until 5:30pm because some people pay an additional $20 for reserved seats, $2 seating includes A/C, bars, & outside grandstands, $3 programs, no draft beer or 16 oz bottles on 3rd floor but is available on 2nd floor, 12 oz beer is $4.50, 3rd floor bar has good dining options of tasty hamburger & fries ($7.50), chicken sandwich, fish & chips, salad, & free ice water, etc., Snack Bars on both floors, 16 oz soda $3,12oz soda $1.50, & you may bet 10 cents and up! Ask the people taking your bets about Exacta & Trifecta Box vs no Box; some are knowledgeable and helpful.

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.

McKenna Children's Museum

Reviewed By capitollover - Austin, Texas

I went to this "museum" with my cousin and her grand kids, ages 5 and 3. They both loved it! The 5 year old boy loved the xrays in the clinic, the water activity and climbing activities outside, and the air tubes and soft balls. The 3 year old girl liked the grocery store, the music activities outside, and the clinic.

They played non-stop for 2 hours, which is a pretty good feat for a play space.

I recommend it for kids about 18 mos. to 8 years. Plan to spend at least 2 hours, and possibly up to 4 hours. Bring a change of clothes in case they get wet playing in the water activity. There are a couple of picnic tables for you to enjoy your snacks if you bring some.

The admission is $7.50 for everyone, no senior or military discounts, but you can get coupons online if you plan ahead.

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!)

Water Garden Gems

Reviewed By Susan M - San Antonio, Texas

My husband and I attended a plant meeting in Marion, Texas at a place called Water Garden Gems. To my surprise it was more than just a meeting in the conference room upstairs. When you enter the gate you enter a 3 and 1/2 acre world of fabulous water lily, koi fish and water plant ponds and fountains. This family owned operation offer tours and seminars for those interested in one day building a pond or water structure in your own yard or if you just want to be educated on the plants, lilies and koi fish. They also have a variety of concrete and metal yard art, numerous ponds of a variety of water lilies and plants, a huge assortment of supplies for any size pond that you may want to create and answers to any questions that you may have. I found the tour very educational and walked away understanding what both plants and koi need to survive in the crazy Texas climate. Rest rooms are available, plenty of parking. Browse at your own pace or follow an educational tour on weekends. They are open 7 days a week except major holidays.

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....
