San Antonio captures the spirit of Texas. Now the ninth largest city in the United States, San Antonio has retained its sense of history and tradition, while carefully blending in cosmopolitan progress. The city has always been a crossroads and a meeting place. Sounds and flavors of Native Americans, Old Mexico, Germans, the Wild West, African-Americans, and the Deep South mingle and merge. Close to seven million visitors a year delight in the discovery of San Antonio's charms.
Here are some highlights that the area has to offer:
Sequestered 20 feet below street level, in the busy metropolitan downtown area, lies one of San Antonio's jewels the Paseo del Rio. Better known as the "River Walk." These cobblestone and flagstone paths border both sides of the San Antonio River as it winds its way through the middle of the business district.
Yanaguana Cruises, the river's floating transportation system, provides a novel method of sightseeing and people-watching in downtown San Antonio. Groups can also dine aboard open-air, candle-lit cruisers as they wind their way along the scenic waterway. River taxis deliver visitors to the Rivercenter, a dazzling three-level glass shopping, dining, and entertainment complex, and to the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
With over 300 days of sunshine annually and an average temperature of 68.8 degrees Fahrenheit, visitors to San Antonio will find an abundance of outdoor sports and recreation to challenge them. The first public golf course in Texas was built in San Antonio in 1916, and today their are more than 25 courses within a thirty minute drive of downtown. San Antonio also offers a wide variety of spectator sports the San Antonio Spurs of the NBA, San Antonio Dragons of the International Hockey League, and the San Antonio Missions minor league baseball team.
