From the Six Flags Fiesta theme park to bronco-busting rodeos, San Antonio offers plenty of spicy family-style fun.
With more than 1.3 million inhabitants, San Antonio is the second-most populous city in Texas and one of the state’s most visited areas. Latino culture is deeply rooted in the history of this city less than 3 hours from the Mexican border. Shop in Mexican markets, sample the Tex-Mex cuisine and wander along plazas inspired by Spanish Colonial architecture.
Strolling the San Antonio River Walk guides you along famous places that represent more than 300 years of history. The old mission called the Alamo, built in the early 1700s, is the most famous of all attractions. This was the scene of a heroic battle during the Texas Revolution, one of the turbulent events in Texas’ fight for independence from Mexico during the mid-1800s. Explore the Institute of Texan Cultures, where you'll see and hear how the mix of cultures influenced the area.
Find beautifully preserved buildings in the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park and learn about life for Native Americans during Spanish colonization. Visit one of the city’s top museums and gaze at huge dinosaur bones, Egyptian mummies or Chinese relics dating back to 1600 B.C.
For a peaceful escape within the city limits, head to the San Antonio Botanical Gardens or the nearby Japanese Tea Gardens. You can see endangered prairie animals from the local area at the nearby San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium.
A bus runs from downtown to many of the city’s major attractions. Hop on and off as you please with a pre-purchased pass. Rent a car and explore the stunning scenery of Texas Hill Country or grab your hiking shoes and head to the Friedrich Wilderness Park. Pack a picnic and spend the afternoon by the lake at Landa Park, enjoy an African safari at the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch or ride some waves at Schlitterbahn Waterpark.
San Antonio is an exciting city to visit any time of year. A warm, semi-arid climate means it’s hot in summer and mild in winter, and most attractions are open year-round.
