Spring Break


When was the last time you went on a “spring break” trip? While the seasonal time off may be synonymous with rowdy college kids, we can all benefit from taking time away from work and daily responsibilities to recharge. This issue will explore some happenings in the city, but here are a few ideas that might inspire a mini getaway:

Nature and history come together at Goliad State Park. The southeast Texas Park is host to historic sites, hike and bike trails, and the San Antonio River. Should you tire of camping, Alamo City is under a 2-hour drive and with plenty of entertainment (and hotels!) along the infamous San Antonio Riverwalk.

If your idea of relaxation involves a body of water, Lake Livingston and Galveston are a short trek outside of the city. A cup of coffee (or glass of wine - it is vacation) tastes better with a waterfront view, right? Make sure to check out the charming rental options available via Airbnb.

Spa treatments, delicious cuisine and room service - yes, please! Indulge in a little lone star luxury at one of the several resorts in the Hill Country. There are details that are unique to each, but you will end up a winner no matter where you choose to stay.

Remember, spring break does not have to mean an extravagant vacation. If leaving the city does not fit your schedule or budget, take time to indulge in the “breaks” life gives us this season. Stop by your favorite coffee shop on the way to work, have that piece of leftover cake for breakfast, enjoy dinner out on your patio - make time for life’s little moments that bring you great joy.

Wishing you a warm and wonderful spring break - no matter how you choose to spend it!
