Be part of the hustle and bustle in San Antonio, Texas

The Lone Star State's second-largest city, San Antonio is a thriving Texan destination that attracts more than 28 million visitors each year. This remarkable city is situated at the crossroads of history and is home to diverse cultural influences, which you can explore at the Institute of Texan Cultures. The community boasts an astounding array of historical buildings, museums and amusement parks, as well as great shopping, fine dining and a vibrant nightlife. With the backdrop of the legendary Alamo Mission, San Antonio is referred to as the Cradle of Texas Liberty.

Things to see and do

Casa Navarro State Historic Park

Commemorating the legendary 1836 battle, the remnants of the Alamo are considered hallowed ground. Situated in the heart of Old San Antonio, the Casa Navarro State Historic Park features the original housing complex of Texas patriot and signatory to the Texas Declaration of Independence, Jose Navarro. The San Antonio Missions National Park preserves four of the five late 17th- and early 18th-century Spanish colonial frontier missions.

River Walk

Boasting cypress-lined pathways, lush landscaping and arched stone bridges, the 2.5-mile-long River Walk is a verdant oasis along the shore of the San Antonio River. This popular gathering place is full of shops, restaurants and cultural hubs. Guests can enjoy the view as they stroll along the riverbank, or relax in a boat drifting with the current.

Tour a museum

In operation since 1881, the renowned Buckhorn Saloon and Museum celebrates San Antonio's Wild West past. While the San Antonio Museum of Art displays works by various masters, the interactive exhibits of the Witte Museum document natural history from dinosaurs to mummies. Relax amidst the colorful flora and aromas of the San Antonio Botanical and Japanese Tea Gardens.

Amusement parks

Amazing animal shows, thrilling rides and midway-style games can be found at the SeaWorld and Six Flags amusement parks. Historic rides are available at Kiddie Park, which is America's oldest children's amusement park. Other top attractions include the San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium and the 750-foot-tall Tower of Americas, which features awesome 360-degree panoramic views of the city skyline and surrounding countryside.

Shopping, dining and nightlife

Shopping venues include The North Star Mall and Alamo Quarry Market, with shops and boutiques offering a variety of vintage and trendy clothing as well as local handicrafts and souvenirs. Foodies can experience unique cuisine infused with ingredients from various cultures at street-side cafés or upscale restaurants. When the stars come out, it-s time to head out on the town to a club or live-performance venue highlighting a wide range of musical genres, from classical to jazz and country.

Special events

At the Tejas Rodeo, you will enjoy the excitement of watching bona fide cowboys and cowgirls in action as they compete in events such as barrel racing, calf roping and bull riding. In addition to museum exhibits, the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center sponsors a variety of festivals and celebrations that focus on the contributions of Chicano and Native Americans, such as the San Antonio CineFestival. Other major celebrations and events held throughout the year include the music, dancing, food and exhibits of Fiesta San Antonio, Fiesta Noche del Rio, Juneteenth, Oktoberfest and Dia de los Muertos. In addition to various professional sporting events, San Antonio serves as the host city for the annual college football Alamo Bowl each January.

Best time to visit

With an average daily temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit, November to April is the most comfortable time to visit San Antonio. Guests arriving during the summer, the most popular time to explore the city, should prepare for the legendary south Texas heat and humidity.

Travel information

Served by more than 30 domestic and international air carriers, San Antonio International Airport (SAT) is situated less than 10 miles from downtown, where you will find plenty of San Antonio hotels. The Amtrak station is located downtown near the convention center. An economical way to see the city is the #7 Sightseer Special, a low-cost bus route that connects many of the city's major museums and favorite points of interest.
