Few destinations provide a sense of place like San Antonio. Here, the bell towers of Spanish colonial missions have greeted mornings for almost 300 years. Mexican, European and Western cultures blend into a unique personality.
Much of the city’s unforgettable landscape has grown along the banks of the River Walk where stone paths run aside the San Antonio River connecting hotels, restaurants, shops and the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in the downtown core. The 15-mile River Walk also links Spanish Colonial Missions (a World Heritage Site, along with the Alamo), museums, public art and the Pearl, a former brewery reborn into an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants, and entertainment.
Along Broadway Street, visitors will find many of San Antonio’s significant cultural attractions including the San Antonio Museum of Art, The DoSeum, Brackenridge Park, Witte Museum, San Antonio Zoo, Japanese Tea Gardens, San Antonio Botanical Garden and the McNay Art Museum.
Known as the Culinary Capital of Texas, San Antonio is quickly becoming one of the most celebrated dining destinations in the country. Our restaurants’ culinary traditions blend with new, homegrown talent from the Culinary Institute of America San Antonio. Boasting more than 4,000 restaurants throughout the city, including iconic restaurants as well as hidden gems, there’s something to satiate every palate.
Plus, over 50 golf courses and theme parks like SeaWorld San Antonio and Six Flags Fiesta Texas make the city a wonderful place for fun!
