Why San Antonio

Centrally located in the heart of Texas, San Antonio blends the natural beauty of the region with the vibrant charm of its residents, offering experiences unlike any other city. Visitors to San Antonio can enjoy:

History – From the Alamo to La Villita Historic Arts Village, San Antonio offers some of the most compelling sites, artifacts and museums in the country, including our Spanish colonial missions, honored as the first UNESCO World Heritage Site in Texas.

The River Walk – The heart of the city, the River Walk connects downtown hotels, restaurants, boutiques, museums and more by a series of tree-lined, riverside pathways, creating an area perfect for a day of fun, leisure and river cruiser rides.

Food – We may be (rightfully) famous for our Tex-Mex, but the region has become a diverse paradise of cuisine, with food trucks, fine dining establishments, the Culinary Institute of America and more offering an adventurous mix of flavors throughout the city.  

The Outdoors – With 300 days of sunshine a year, odds are, it’s going to be a beautiful day. We’ve got miles of hike and bike trails, huge parks, more than 50 golf courses, caving and more activities to keep everyone active.

Relaxation – Whether it’s a margarita and tableside guacamole at a riverside café or an afternoon at one of our full-service spas, there’s no shortage of ways to relax.

Culture – San Antonio is a host for the performing arts, with live entertainment happening throughout the city. And for a quieter cultural experience, the city includes museums with impressive collections that host stunning traveling exhibitions.

Thrills – Home to multiple theme parks and water parks, including Six Flags Fiesta Texas and SeaWorld San Antonio, San Antonio is an easy place to find a good adrenaline rush, whether it’s riding the Iron Rattler or watching stunning animal feats.

Sports – San Antonio is home to the NBA-champion Spurs, the WNBA Stars, Rampage hockey and more, including special events like the Valero Alamo Bowl, Valero Texas Open and more.

Celebrations – Every night is a celebration in the Alamo City, and you can get in on the action at our great clubs throughout town, but the city really comes to life during our festivals, including Fiesta San Antonio, the city’s oldest and biggest citywide extravaganza.
