Make This Spring Break in San Antonio One to Remember!

We may be a little biased, but our favorite place to celebrate Spring Break in Texas is Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo. During our upcoming Spring Break celebration, we will return to offering informative animal shows every half hour, and will be unveiling several brand new animal encounter experiences! Guests who adore our fuzzier animals will rejoice to hear that they can now book encounters with our laid-back capybaras and cute bat-eared foxes! Discover just how adorable these fuzzy little guys are in person during your very own animal encounter with them. Here are a few photos to hold you over until you can meet these amazing animals in person!

Since many of our guests make considerable treks to visit us in New Braunfels, we would also like to share a few additional ways you can celebrate Spring Break in San Antonio! Another great event for families to attend this Spring Break is Lighthouse ArtSpace San Antonio’s very own Disney Animation: Immersive Experience. This event promises to immerse families in some of Disney’s greatest films, from their earliest releases to their most recent hits! Whether you grew up watching films like The Aristocats in the ‘70s or The Lion King in the ‘90s, there is sure to be a unique Disney experience for you at this immersive, decades-spanning event. Nourish your inner child while making memories with the whole family at this local entertainment venue!

Fun Enrichment Activities & Places to Celebrate this Spring Break in Style

Now that we have shared some amazing, animal-centric activities that you can look forward to this Spring Break, it’s time to share even more Spring Break in Texas ideas that are guaranteed to be fun for the whole family! Another great way that families with young children can commemorate Spring Break San Antonio 2023 is by swinging by the DoSeum’s Very Eric Carle: A Very Hungry, Quiet, Lonely, Clumsy, Busy Exhibit. As its name implies, this exclusive, interactive exhibit will take guests inside the world of Eric Carle’s imaginative Very picture book series. Since each picture book in the Very series follows a special insect as they embark on a journey of self-discovery, this exhibit is sure to be the perfect way for kiddos to see these themes come to life! To make this event even better, exhibits like this one double as unforgettable, immersive enrichment activities for children who grew up with Eric Carle’s picture books!

Another fun-packed event that is sure to be an entertaining night of fun for families as Spring Break in Texas comes to a close is the Christian Youth Theater’s performance of The Addams Family School Edition. Since this show will be held at New Braunfels’ own Brauntex Performing Arts Theatre, families can support the arts after celebrating with our zoo’s phenomenal animals all day long! During this performance, families can become acquainted— or refamiliarise themselves— with the delightfully macabre Addams family as they enjoy an evening at the theater! The show will be held from Thursday, March 16th to Sunday, March 19th. We hope these two suggestions are helpful as you decide what events you will be attending this Spring Break in San Antonio!
