SAN ANTONIO – As families from around the state flock to San Antonio for spring break, local attractions are seeing good-sized crowds.

A line of visitors waited to get into the DoSeum on Wednesday, and traffic near the San Antonio Zoo backed up cars around Brackenridge Park.

Some were locals, and — as is the case every year — many came from out of town. Statistics from the previous two years provided by Visit San Antonio show a spike in the average occupancy rate in downtown hotels during spring break.


  • Week before spring break: 80.5 percent

  • Spring break: 96.2 percent

  • Week after spring break: 80.3 percent


  • Week before spring break: 78.7 percent

  • Spring break: 90.7 percent

  • Week after spring break: 72.2 percent
