Olmos Basin Greenway
sanantonio.gov
The Olmos Basin Greenway Trail runs between Jones-Maltsberger Road and Devine Road and is about a mile or so long. Because of the mature trees in Olmos Basin Park, the greenway trails are almost entirely shaded, offering relief from the hot Texas sun on sweltering days. If you decide to go during the summer, or let’s be real, any other season in Texas, the shade doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll be cool. Luckily, it runs along Olmos Creek.

Sweet Berry Farm
1801 FM 1980, ​Marble Falls, Texas, (830) 798-1462, sweetberryfarm.com
For those willing to drive out to Marble Falls, the 60-acre Sweet Berry Farm is worth a visit. The crown jewel is a massive, Texas-shaped corn maze, but the farm also features a pumpkin patch, scarecrow stuffing, flower picking, hay rides and other fall-themed activities, open every day of the week except Wednesdays. Admission is free, but each activity is ticketed, so the money can add up if you're not careful.

See an Outdoor Movie
Seeing a flick through the windshield of your car or in a socially distanced outdoor space is a great way to lose yourself for a couple of hours. Look for the offerings at Fiesta Texas and those from Slab Cinema, or work a road trip into the deal and head to the Stars & Stripes Drive-In in New Braunfels.

Eisenhauer Road Flea Market
3903 Eisenhauer Road, (210) 653-7592, eisenhauerfleamarketsa.net
From gifts and collectibles to apparel and fresh goods, there’s a lot to purchase at this market. Don’t go too crazy your first time, or at least pace yourself as you make your way through this indoor market (yup, no sweating from the hot sun here). While you’re there, feel free to get a palm reading done if you’re into that sort of thing.

Mission Reach
thesanantonioriverwalk.com
Mission Reach is a popular destination for kayakers, pedestrians and bikers alike. Because a lot of the trail is located a fair distance from the road, it’s a good place for people who aren’t experienced with riding near or on the street. The route is more scenic than challenging anyway, so if you’re into rough and tough terrain and heart-pumping inclines on an isolated path in nature, Mission Reach probably isn’t for you. If you’re into paved paths and mostly gentle slopes with a beautiful view of the historic missions, you’ll love Mission Reach.

RD Speakeasy
8400 N New Braunfels Ave, (210) 605-2292
San Antonio (unfortunately) isn’t home to a lot of speakeasies, but a recent addition has yet to gain too much attention. Anyone who wants to feel really badass should make arrangements to visit the RD Speakeasy. Here’s what you gotta do: text RD at the number above with your party size and expected arrival time. Once you get the green light, you’ll need to whisper the password through a peephole where you see a green light at The Barn Door — the speakeasy is found in a former party room of the restaurant.
