San Antonio or Myrtle Beach

We will be traveling with our three year old in October. He has moderate- severe autism. I know Myrtle Beach is a very autism friendly town. But San Antonio has Morgan's Wonderland (inclusive theme park)and our son loves theme parks as he has already been to both Disney and Legoland on both coasts. Which town is better to spend a few days at? This will be for my 40th birthday, but of course I need to make sure my son has a good time first. Thanks

1. Re: San Antonio or Myrtle Beach

Hello Abbs

October weather is pretty good in either of those cities...

But of course with Myrtle Beach, you're able to access the Ocean, which doesn't exist in San Antonio

If you're looking for beach then San Antonio is not the place to go

But either city has family friendly attractions, so really its about your own personal preference

You can ask about SA on Tripadvisors dedicated San Antonio Forum though to see what the local experts think

And ask about Myrtle Beach on their dedicated Forum too, where local Experts also give travel advice daily

Thanks, I'll post on each of those threads. I'm definitely a beach girl, but I plan trips around what my son likes. If he's happy, I'm happy. But he loves the ocean like mommy (he's already been to San Diego and Daytona Beach). I'm trying to save money which is the reason we are not going to Oahu this time.
