Meet, Learn, and Play in San Antonio: An Introduction to the City from Visit San Antonio
As a top leisure destination in the nation, San Antonio offers an experience that stretches far beyond the conference room. You’ll enjoy a wide array of unforgettable attractions, history, and culture that can’t be found anywhere else. From the historic landmarks to more than 50 area golf courses to theme parks and nightlife, San Antonio has something for everyone. Click the button below for an overview of the city's neighborhoods from the Visit San Antonio organization.
The San Antonio River Walk has been expanded twice in recent years, and each section offers unique experiences. In the heart of downtown, visitors can stroll along cypress-lined paths, dine al fresco or enjoy narrated tours on the city’s new fleet of electric river barges.
To the south of downtown, the Mission Reach links four of San Antonio’s five Spanish colonial missions. Aside from exploring the missions, visitors can hike, bike and kayak this stretch of the river. The missions, including the Alamo, were designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015. UNESCO also recently designated San Antonio a “Creative City of Gastronomy.” San Antonio is only the second city in the U.S. to earn this distinction, and the first in Texas. It’s further proof that no city blends food, culture, tradition and innovation quite like San Antonio.
The Museum Reach offers cultural and culinary immersion with museums, public art installations, and Pearl, an 1800’s-era brewery reincarnated into a contemporary urban district with boutiques, restaurants, a farmers market, Hotel Emma and the rousing Jazz, TX music venue.
Along Broadway Street, visitors will find many of San Antonio’s significant cultural attractions including the San Antonio Museum of Art, The DoSeum, Brackenridge Park, Witte Museum, San Antonio Zoo, Japanese Tea Gardens and the McNay Art Museum.
Visitors may also enjoy the San Antonio’s Botanical Garden’s recently completed eight-acre expansion, which offers dramatic new opportunities for guests to explore and connect with nature. Major additions include a welcome and discovery complex, culinary garden and outdoor kitchen, family adventure garden and more.
Thrill seekers can enjoy exciting new rides at Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Sea World & Aquatica San Antonio.
