Downtown San Antonio

Essentials for the San Antonio Experience

With centuries-old history rooted deep in Spanish influence and Southwest traditions, San Antonio is sure to spice up your next vacation. Here are a few of your best bets for the perfect stay in the Alamo City.

Get some culture.

Of course, The Alamo should be number one on the itinerary of any first-time visitor to San Antonio. Site of the Battle of the Alamo, a pivotal event in the Texas Revolution, the originally named Misión San Antonio de Valero was built in 1744 and has since been named an official state shrine and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The nearby San Antonio Missions National Historical Park is also home to the Mision Nuestra Senora de la Purisima Concepcion de Acuna, also known as Mission Concepcion, Mission Espada, Mission San Jose and Mission San Juan Capistrano.

And it doesn't stop there – there's much to learn at focal points like La Villita Historic Arts Village and the Institute of Texan Cultures.

San Antonio Texas Attractions

The Alamo

Stroll the River Walk.

After originating as a modest botanic garden along the San Antonio River, the San Antonio River Walk has grown to become one of the city's top tourist attractions. Take a stroll and stop off at a number of attractions along the way –  the River Walk is home to Rivercenter Mall, the San Antonio Museum of Art, Arneson River Theatre, and Pearl Brewery, among countless other shops, eateries, and watering holes.

Get a thrill, and maybe a chill.

Visitors of any age are sure to get a kick out of Six Flags Fiesta Texas. And as the summer months roll around, the park's White Water Bay is there to cool you down with  water slides, water funnels, and one of the largest wave pools in America.

Another local favorite is Morgan's Wonderland Park, where families can enjoy a number of uniquely themed rides, as well as special attractions like the Pirate Island Playground & Garden.

Catch a game.

Sports fans in the area are no stranger to success, thanks to the perennial champion contender San Antonio Spurs, who host high-flying NBA action at the AT&T Center, not far from downtown San Antonio.

Each spring and summer, baseball fans can enjoy a day at Nelson W. Wolff Municipal Stadium with the San Antonio Missions. Double-A affiliates of the San Diego Padres, the future big-leaguers of the Missions invite you to enjoy America's Favorite Pastime in a more intimate setting. Check the schedule to catch a game during your visit.

San Antonio Texas Attractions

The San Antonio River Walk

Get up close to some animals.

Inspire the aspiring marine biologist in your family at SeaWorld San Antonio, where animal exhibits, shows, and tours – not to mention adventure rides like the Steel Eel roller coaster and the Rio Loco river ride – mean wet and wild fun for the whole family.

Closer to downtown, creatures of land and sea are represented at San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium. There families will find a collection of over 3,500 animals representing 750 species. Embark on a San Antonio Zoo Eagle train ride to get a glimpse at the entire 35-acre park while giving your own dogs a rest.

Hit the links.

The weather's right for golf almost year round, and San Antonio visitors won't have trouble finding a place to sneak in a round or two. The Republic Golf Club offers 18 holes of championship-style play across 7,007 yards on the southeast side of San Antonio, and south of the Loop 410, the Mission Del Lago Golf Course is part of the popular Alamo City Golf Trail.

Quench your thirst.

Sip some suds during your stay – San Antonio lays claim to countless watering holes, and local purveyors are eager to show off their work. Ranger Creek Brewing & Distilling is a go-to for beer lovers on the hunt for hops, and visitors to Rebecca Creek Distillery are always in high spirits after sampling the Enchanted Rock Vodka and the Rebecca Creek Fine Texas Spirit Whiskey. The facility also hosts free public tours.
