With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, sometimes we need to slow down just a bit and enjoy what the season of giving is really about: gathering with loved ones and creating memories that will last a life time. And while many are choosing to forgo the traditional gift exchange to instead opt for travel, let’s face it, airline flights can be pretty pricey especially for those with large families. So why not a road trip headed I-10 west to the beautiful JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort and Spa?
With stunning views of the Hill Country, the 1,002-room resort sprawled amongst the rolling hills, is guaranteed to provide memorable fun for the entire family. And, as if the seven on-site restaurants, a 9-acre water park, spa, and a 36-hole TPC golf course weren’t enough, the resort has been magically transformed into a winter wonderland with themed events for all ages just in time for the holidays!
From an evening outdoor stroll amongst the twinkling lights and cheerful Christmas music, to the gingerbread craft workshop, to the following signature events, this resort is will definitely lighten up your holiday experience!
• Breakfast with Santa & Mrs. Claus Enjoy breakfast with none other than Santa and Mrs. Claus. Saturday and Sunday mornings beginning November 25 thru December 24
• Keep Calm and Plunge On Contest Freezing water + freezing weather = the perfect scenario for a Polar Bear! Or…for those who are brave enough to jump into the one pool we decided not to heat this winter. Prizes will be given for the wackiest plunge and for selfies shared at #JWSanAntonio
• Yule Crack Up Movie Nights Families that laugh together have more fun! So gather the kids, mom and dad too, for some belly laughs while enjoying your favorite holiday comedies. Blankets and hot cocoa will be provided to keep you warm
The resort also offers a “Kids’ Night Out” so that mom and dad can enjoy an evening of fine dining at 18 Oaks for traditional steak-house fare and perhaps even an evening nightcap (we recommend the Balvenie DoubleWood scotch). Or if Bourbon is your preference, then head over to the Crooked Branch; their bourbon selection is quite superb. Oh, and make sure to try their signature popcorn flavored with bacon butter. You won’t regret it! Another “must try” during your stay is George Clooney’s signature tequila, Casamigos Tequila. Served at the resorts Cibolo Moon restaurant, this is probably the smoothest tequila we’ve ever tasted. Take it from us, pairing the tequila with the restaurants signature BBQ Brisket Burnt Ends, makes for an even better experience.
With so much fun to be had, what are you waiting for? Book your stay today and get ready to create those fun holiday memories for you and your family.
