When visiting San Antonio in winter, there are a few things to plan. First, be sure to check the weather before you go and call the hotel to see if their swimming pool is opened. No, you should. Here’s a list of a few things to do in San Antonio in February. Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld Westover Hills hosted my son and me while we attended the Google Safer Internet Day Event. All thoughts are indeed my own!
There are tons of things to do in San Antonio in winter!
I didn’t even think the pool would be opened in February. It never even crossed my mind that my son could go swimming. Even though San Antonio is down south, it’s not usually warm to swim well, anywhere in Texas for that matter. But, when we arrived, we saw kids swimming in the pool. Yes, it was heated. I will say, however, that the weather was in the ’70s, and since the pool was heating, Brody and I made a mad dash to Target to buy him a swimsuit. Eighty-plus dollars later, he had a swimsuit and swim shirt, flip flops, and a google & snorkel set. I told him he had to pay for the goggles.

I don’t usually buy swimming gear this early in the year and certainly not at total price, but I made an exception, and I had a happy boy! My bad for not calling ahead. Save some money and call the hotel to see if their pool is opened. Chances are, if you stay at the Courtyard by Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld Westover Hills, you’ll have full access to their gorgeous pool.

Visiting San Antonio In The Wintertime
Two years ago this very month, my mom and I stayed at the same Courtyard by Marriott. The pool was not opened then, so maybe that’s why I didn’t think twice about it this time. Our San Antonio trip was for a family matter, but mom and I could catch a half-day of the River Walk, including the riverboat ride. Though the River Walk was in full swing, it was cold and dreary. We bundled up next to each other on the riverboat ride, and I couldn’t ask for a better day to spend with my mom.
When you visit San Antonio in February or any other month, you have to walk the River Walk.
I’m sure there are many more things to do in San Antonio in February, but the highlight of our trip was my son being able to swim at the Courtyard Marriott. Below is the pool at the Courtyard by Marriott San Antonio SeaWorld – IN FEBRUARY!! AND…it’s heated! So, don’t forget your swimsuits!

This hotel is a modern, up-to-date, business hotel and family hotel all rolled up in one. The Bistro has terrific healthy food choices and is a perfect place to have dinner when you don’t want to get out. My son and I ate dinner there both nights. The atmosphere was enjoyable and warm.
