SAVE on an Awesome Anniversary with a San Antonio Vacation

In addition to our staycation ideas, Hubby and I have been thinking about plans for our FIFTH wedding anniversary and are totally considering a San Antonio vacation. I reminded him that I have been playing around online with SAVE – San Antonio Vacation Experience and we should plan something fun, yet inexpensive!!


Hubby was raised in Michigan so he is not as familiar with Texas and he just doesn’t understand the romance that the Riverwalk can provide for us. I’m hoping to talk him into it and show him!!


We could also throw a little history in there and visit the Alamo. :)

The SAVE program offers over $600 in savings and includes theme parks, animal adventures, shopping, and fabulous hotel deals! Check out some of these great deals and ideas for our anniversary vacation!!

Theme Park Thrills

Brimming with adventure, San Antonio is home to theme parks SeaWorld San Antonio, Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Morgan’s Wonderland. This season, SeaWorld is debuting “Aquatica,” an 18-acre aquatic park with up-close animal experiences, high-speed thrills and relaxing, sandy beaches. SAVE discounts include deals on family-four packs, second day free, $10 off admission and more.
Just down the road, Six Flags Fiesta Texas features over 50 rides and attractions, including eight roller coasters. New at Fiesta Texas is the SkyScreamer swing ride that provides aerial views that surpass the park’s quarry walls. SAVE discounts include adults pay kids price, buy an adult ticket and get a child’s free, next day free and more.

Our anniversary trip

I thought it might be fun to look at what Hubby and I might do if we were planning the trip. Maybe if I plan it out here, then I can convince him by October!

  1. The Drury Inn on the Riverwalk looks so beautiful and we could get a suite with SAVE starting at $99.99!
  2. Just to get Hubby some of the San Antonio experience, we could go on a Grand Trolley Tour and get $3 off per person with SAVE!
  3. We absolutely have to head down to Market Square and get discounts on purchases with SAVE {then I can get my margarita at La Margarita with the money we save!}
  4. Hubby would probably want to go to Ripley’s Believe it or Not – and we could get $1 off with SAVE!
  5. I would love to go to the Botanical Gardens where we can also get $1 off with SAVE!
  6. Since we won’t have The Boy with us, we might as well head over to San Antonio Fiesta Texas – lots of discounts through SAVE!
