This Might be the Best Way to Visit San Antonio

San Antonio, Texas, is known for much more than the Alamo or the infamous River Walk. 

The Central-Texas town is full of rich history and entertaining eats beyond tex-mex and Lone Star beer. 

If you’re planning a trip to San Antonio, here are the best ways to spend your time!

Where to Stay:

San Antonio has wide variety of hotel options for all budgets!

Stay in a 4-Star hotel like the Saint Anthony Hotel in downtown San Antonio, where luxury meets historical landmarks. 

This French Empire - inspired accommodation is full of antique furniture and spectacular sculptures and paintings. 

At more affordable options like the River Walk Hotel, you’ll find yourself at the center of all the attractions of San Antonio.

Directly on the infamous river walk, this boutique hotel provides relaxing rooms with a colorful view of both the water and the Alamo. 

Where to Eat:

Begin your weekend with brunch at the Southerleigh Brewing Company, where great cuisine meets historical landmarks in an old brewhouse. 

Always wanted to try chicken & waffles? 

The Southernleigh knocks this classic southern dish out of the park!

If you love Tex-Mex, Rita’s on the River is the place for you.

Home of fajitas and Texas-sized margaritas, Rita’s is a popular lunch-spot along the riverwalk.

Plus, live mariachi music is always playing!

Things to Do:

You can’t visit San Antonio without at least glancing at the Riverwalk!

Walk or ride the water by way of river-taxi and check out the hundreds of shops, restaurants, and entertainment along the infamous walkway.

Take a leisurely stroll through the Japanese Tea Gardens for views of lush greenery, flower beds, a 60-foot waterfall, and of course - koi ponds!

The Tea Gardens are open to the public daily without reservations, though events and photography need to be scheduled well in advance. 

What’s a trip to San Antonio without the Alamo?

This shrine of Texan history has more than 300 years under its belt, complete with Spanish colonial influence and haunted battlegrounds. 

Take an expert guided tour of the facilities with live reenactments and demonstrations.
