Singles Awareness Day

Valentine’s Day might be over but today we celebrate those who don’t have a valentine to celebrate with. It’s Singles Awareness Day (Sorry to make you aware of it). Whether you’re single or one half of a couple everyone can appreciate a little time alone. There are plenty of outings that are great to do with other people but doing them alone is sometimes just much more satisfying. Doing things at your own pace, zoning out, doing whatever you please; it’s a great experience. We’ve rounded up a few of the best things to do in San Antonio all by your lonesome.

Sure, museums are a great place to spend time with a loved one. You can walk hand in hand through the museum, marveling at the ancient artifacts together and comparing knowledge. OR you can head in alone and take as much time as you’d like wandering through the exhibits, taking your time at each fascinating thing you find along the way. You won’t have to be dragged ahead to some other exhibit or room your partner finds more interesting. You have all the time in the world to do as you please! Some of the best museums for doing that are right around us. The Institute of Texan Cultures, The Alamo and The San Antonio Museum of Art are all within a 25 minute drive of the Residences at La Cantera.

You might think that dinner and the movies is the quintessential date night idea but imagine this: walking into the movie theater and purchasing ONE ticket, hitting the concession stand and buying popcorn, ONE drink and ONE box of candy, then heading into the theater to choose any seat anywhere without worrying if there are two seats next to each other. Sounds less stressful doesn’t it? Silverado 16 is dinner and a movie all wrapped into one. Grab yourself some pizza, a burger, or a sandwich before heading into the movie of your choice. The best part of going to the movies alone is you don’t have to argue about what movie you should see! See the menu and check the movie times for Silverado 16 here on their website.

Just because you’re in a relationship doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy time alone and just because you’re single doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time by yourself. Being alone doesn’t mean you’re lonely!
