5 Fun Birthday Ideas for Adults in San Antonio

Plan the Ultimate Grown Up Birthday Party in San Antonio!

When we’re kids, birthday parties are pretty standard. Sugar-filled cake, candles, a bounce house and maybe a piñata to keep a dozen or so children entertained. Really, it was whatever your folks planned. Now that you’re an adult, your special day can be celebrated any way you want. 

In San Antonio birthday ideas for adults are all over the place because there’s so much to do in the city. Whatever your happy place is you’re sure to find it in San Antonio - and can throw an awesome shindig there. Here are some of our favorite adult birthday party ideas that may be hard to top next year.

Note: If your special day is in the summer you may want to consider indoor birthday party places in San Antonio unless you can handle the heat. 

Throw a Few Axes

If you are okay with handling sharp objects, axe throwing is a big trend that’s reached San Antonio. You and your friends will learn how to toss an axe before seeing who can hit the target. It’s like an extreme form of darts. At Class Axe Throwing you can have beers while you throw, but it may not be the best idea while wielding a weapon.

Paddle Your Way to the Party

Why take an Uber when you can paddleboard to the RiverWalk? Paddle boarding may seem like a solitary activity, but it’s actually a really fun way for a small group to commemorate a friend’s birthday. 

Hill Country Paddle Sports or SUP SATX can set you up with group SUP rentals that last as little as an hour or all day. You can paddle through the King William District on your way to downtown attractions or have a low-key birthday floating on Boerne Lake. 

Tee Up to Celebrate

If tee time is your favorite time of day, then TopGolf has your birthday covered. It’s a regular destination for golfers, but all your guests can take part in private room programs and buffet fare. TopGolf can accommodate parties as small as 12 people or as large as 250 if you’re the type that goes all out on your birthday.

Dinner at the Buckhorn Museum and Saloon

This is the birthday dinner venue for Texas history lovers. The Buckhorn Museum and Saloon is brimming with Texas artifacts and decor. After dinner you can visit the Texas Ranger Museum next door to get a taste of cowboy life out on the frontier.

Experience Something New at a San Antonio Escape Room
