👋 Megan here. I savor spring weekends like this last one, when the weather is warm and sunny and all you want to do is be outside before the summer heat kicks in.

  • A walk, run or bike along the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River on the South Side is the perfect way to enjoy it.

Seen above: The river at Padre Park features a small dam and is a natural place to hang out.

  • You can see the blue-green water rushing by, hear kids playing and watch people fish in peace.

Plus, the trails on the South Side connect to a plethora of other great spots.

The bottom line: Get outside while you can.
