San Antonio Family Vacation Giveaway

We love sharing money saving travel tips on Traveling Mamas and we love it even more when we get a chance to give away a trip, especially to family vacation destinations like San Antonio. I’ve taken my family to San Antonio for a vacation and we loved every minute of our visit. We played hard all day, visiting historic sites and the variety of nearby attractions. At night, we walked along the RiverWalk, watching barges float by while strains of a passing mariachi band played. We enjoyed a wonderful family meal at an outdoor restaurant and basked in the relaxing atmosphere until Little CajunMama fell asleep in my lap.

The San Antonio Convention and Visitors Bureau is offering amazing incentives for visitors. S.A.V.E. San Antonio offers special rates for hotels as well as discounts on attractions and shopping.
