2. Big Lou’s Pizza:
If you can’t get enough pizza and have a huge appetite then listen up. This isn’t your normal pizza parlor and it isn’t for the faint of heart. This restaurant offers monstrous pizzas ranging from sizes of 10” to a whopping 42”, including a huge selection of toppings. This is also one of the top things to do in San Antonio when your entire family is hungry. Big Lou’s is family friendly, and from the size of the pizzas, it will likely take a whole family to tackle one of these bad boys. They have long hours and great prices for the size of these elephant-sized pizzas.

3. Pool Day:
Get some sun on that bod and go for a swim at the San Pedro Park Pool. This is a perfect spot to spend an afternoon with the family. It is also one of the top things to do in San Antonio during the summer. If you get a little hot then hop in and cool off and if you get hungry then have a picnic while taking in the fresh air. You get sun-kissed and save moolah! Killing two birds with one stone.

4. Lulu’s Bakery and Café:
Lulu’s is a prime place that you can go for a quick burger and fries or a nice chicken fried steak for lunch or dinner. However, their claim to fame is their giant cinnamon roll, which got some recognition on the show Man vs. Food! This cinnamon roll is 3 pounds of sugary cinnamon goodness and is for those craving some serious sweets early in the morning. It’s open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and has the traditional diner atmosphere to it.

5. Take in Nature:
All around San Antonio are series of bike and hiking trails available for those who want to go out and take in some fresh air. The most famous bike trails are the ones that run along all the missions in San Antonio. Now if you want to spend money, then you can rent a bike, but you can bring your own bikes to save some green. These trails are pretty long so expect to be out there for a majority of the day and be sure to pack some snacks, sunscreen, and water.
