ACMB’s 12 Days of Christmas Scavenger Hunt!

The city that knows how to Fiesta also knows how to get into the holiday spirit!  San Antonio does Christmas up BIG and we love it. To encourage you to get out and enjoy all that the Alamo City has to offer this time of year, we challenge you to a Christmas Scavenger Hunt!


Participating is really easy! 

Choose 12 spots to visit or activities to complete from the list below. We encourage you to aim for one per day! It’s easy: take a picture, post it to Instagram, and tag @alamocitymoms with the hashtag #ACMB12Days.  We don’t want to add any stress to the season, so instead of 12 days to complete your scavenger hunt, you’ll have until December 25.
