Travel tip No. 1. If vacationing in winter, make sure your connections are not through blizzard prone areas. I learnt this the hard way when we missed our connecting flight through Denver the week of the big snowstorm. After scrambling around for alternate flights we finally found some tickets on Southwest 2 days later. Of course we did get snowed by the full price fares. Sigh! Anniversary and birthday presents are on indefinite hold now.
San Antonio is such a little known holiday destination among my friends and acquaintances that everyone I told about it assumed we were visiting relatives. But the idea came from some website which assured us that kids would have plenty to keep them entertained. And raising a couple of Gen Z kids with low attention spans and boredom thresholds made that the most important criterion.
