And even if you aren't into the country scene, there is still plenty to keep you occupied at the FileMaker DevCon 2014.

Giddy up and yee-haw!

No. 10. Ride the SuperMan: Krypton Coaster and other thrilling rides at Six Flags San Antonio, home to more than 35 rides for thrill-seekers of all ages, entertaining shows and a water park.

No. 9. Meet Shamu face-to-face, along with all of his ocean friends, like dolphins, whales, sharks, sea lions, penguins, and more at Sea World San Antonio. Plus, if you need to cool off from that 100-degree weather, you can always swim with Stingrays at Aquatica, Sea World's Waterpark.

No. 8. See a show at the Majestic Empire Theatre, one of San Antonio's National Historic Landmarks. Built in 1929 with a Spanish Mediterranean style, this theatre is still home to the San Antonio Symphony, the Broadway in San Antonio and other arts performances throughout the year.

No. 7. Taste the finest wine in Texas during a wine trail across the Hill Country. You can enjoy new wines paired with chocolate and cheeses, tour the wineries and meet the owners at over 35 wineries in the area.

No. 6. Take in the scenery of San Antonio on top of the 750-foot tall Tower of the Americas. The observation deck boasts a 360-degree view of the city, and your ticket price also includes access to a 4D Theater Ride, Skies Over Texas.

No. 5. Chow down on the best of Texas at Rudy's Bar-B-Q, rated number one on Yelp. The restaurant is renowned for their flavorful brisket, sausage, turkey, ribs, chicken and pork loin. Plus, they have a country store, so you can take some of the delicious sauce home with you!

No. 4. Burn off that Bar-B-Q meal by line dancing or two-stepping at Cowboy's Dancehall, ranked number one on Yelp for country dancing in San Antonio. On some nights, you might even catch a live professional bull ride.

No. 3. Visit the legendary Enchanted Rock, a huge, pink granite exfoliation dome that the Tonkawa Indians believe to be haunted. This amazing rock rises 1,825 feet above sea level and covers 640 acres, making it one of the largest underground rock formations in the United States.

No. 2. Explore the medieval communities at the San Antonio Missions. The four mission churches, which are still active parishes today, provided a refuge from Apache raids, deadly diseases and drought in the 1700s. Survival was a gift to those who pledged fealty to the Spanish King, while accepting a new religion and way of life.

No. 1. Soak in a little bit of battle history at the Alamo, where the Texians and Tejanos, including famous frontiersman David Crockett, defended their liberty for 13 days against the Santa Anna army during the Texas Revolution in 1836.
