Looking for something to do this weekend to celebrate Memorial Day? I've put together a short list of great ways to celebrate the beginning of summer, including visiting my open house this Saturday.

  1. Visit Morgan's Wonderland. The world's first fully accessible fun park. Developed by Gordon Harman and inspired by his daughter, Morgan, the park is a 25-acre park designed with the needs of children and adults with special needs. Featuring a carousel, a gorgeous lake, a miniature train, play areas and more, the Morgan's Wonderland is an interactive playscape open to all.
  2. Take a trip to SeaWorld. One of my favorite attractions in San Antonio, I try to visit the park at least a couple times each year and take my nephew whenever he visits. Don't miss Shamu or the dolphins!
  3. Tubing on the Comal or Guadalupe. A perenniel favorite, what San Antonian hasn't spent a few hours floating down the river in an innertube. Relaxing and cool, two features everyone is looking for on a hot summer day.
  4. Remember the Alamo! When was the last time you toured the Alamo? If you can't remember or the answer is never, then head on over to learn about the rich history of San Antonio and the fight for liberty in Texas.
  5. Visit an open house. If you've been wondering if now is the right time to buy a home or curious to find out if now is the time to sell your existing home and make an upward move, it is! Come visit me this Sunda, May 26, starting at 2 p.m. at 13751 Bluff Villas Ct in San Antonio to have a tasty (adult) beverage and see a beautiful home in the highly sought-after Villas of Bluffview in Camino Real. This entertainer's dream features an oasis of privacy and a pool just in time to cool off for the summer. You may just find the home of your dreams. Here is a little sneak peak to whet your appetite. Hope to see you there!

And don't forget, take a few moments to remember the reason we celebrate this holiday: to honor the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice in the service of our nation in order to make us free. Hug a soldier tight and let them know how much they mean to us.

Jerry, keeping busy at open house on Memorial Day weekend in this market surely will pay off. Good Luck for full-price (and perhaps multiple) offers.

As of late yesterday evening, this fabulous home is now under contract, in just 12 days! So much for holding an open house today. #goodproblemtohave
