Was there a post that was posted a while ago where someone had listed awhole bunch of things to do and places to see while down there for their graduation weekend? Maybe even hotels to stay at? If not, can anyone provide a link that they know of? I'm trying to help out Shane's parents and give them some information about what there is to do. Thank youuuu :)

Well, I know they have sea world, 6 flags, the Alamo, they have a BEAUTIFUL River Walk, and much more!
We only really went to the River Walk and that was about it. We ate a lot (at Nick's request, lol) and mostly just went to the hotel to relax because honestly, Nick was EXHAUSTED. He said that on Thursday for the coin ceremony and Friday for graduation, his TI made them get up at 2:30 AM to start getting everything ready.
So make sure you have some time set aside where he can go to the hotel and relax for a while!

There's quite a few things to do on base too. They have two mini malls on Lackland, a bowling alley, and a BX (which is like a walmart, pretty much, but with a huge food court and some shops inside). I think they also have a movie theater.

As for the hotels, we stayed as close to the base as we could. Our hotel was on Military Dr., right outside the base. They also have a bunch of hotels in the city. I've heard they are pretty nice!!
Just make sure you and Shane's parents know where Lackland is BEFORE Thursday morning. Nick's mom and I had trouble actually finding it Wednesday night when we got there, and I'm glad we tried looking for it before Thursday morning because we definitely would not had made it on time.

This link has lists of stuff to do in SA, hotels, and places to eat.

Basketball and Hockey games are usually a hit, I didn't get to go to graduation due to my sister passing away the week before & I was super sick. But Jake went to a Hockey game! I enjoyed the mall at the Riverwalk.

For hotels I suggest the TLF, it's probably the easiest. Oh & cheapest. :)

^^They both covered it I think haha
I did SeaWorld, 6 Flags, The Alamo AND The Riverwalk! We had extra time cause Nick was Honor Grad but if you can I recommend trying to do it all!!
Although because we did it all we didnt have a ton of time at each of them, but I think we did a good job dividing up hotel relaxation Sex time and eating and fun activities, plus all the AF grad stuff. So it is do-able!

I stayed at the Best Western Atrea, like 4 minutes from base. It was probably the nicest hotel I've ever stayed at, at least that I can remember. I think it was $400 or $500 for four nights, Nick payed though :)
