Welcome to San Antonio, TX

Wake up in the Alamo City with the scent of huevos rancheros in the air, the sound of mariachis, and the sight of barges winding down the San Antonio River, and you know you're some place special. - Copyright © 2014 by Fodor’s Travel, a division of Random House, LLC. All rights reserved. Explore

Things You Can’t Miss

1/9
Samantha's Pick San Antonio Zoo in the Twilight

The San Antonio Zoo has a Twilight tour that’s refreshingly devoid of crowds, as well as the Texas sun. Plus, the animals are a lot more, well, animated.

Samantha's Pick El Mercado for Great Street Food

I still dream of Elote en Vaso or corn in a cup. Cut from the cob and mixed with cream, paprika, a dash of chili powder and a squeeze of lime. YUM!

Samantha's Pick Beyond the River Walk

Choose hotels close to the convention center. When there’s no convention in town, the rates are excellent and you’re still close to the popular River Walk.

Put a Place to the Name at the Alamo

You may be surprised to see just how small the Alamo actually is. The fortress compound was where the last stand for Texas independence took place in 1836.

See All the San Antonio Missions

Though the Alamo is the most famous, there are five separate missions that stretch along the San Antonio River. If you have time, they’re all worth a look.

Go Tasting at the Texas Hill Country Wineries

Head about 45 minutes north of downtown San Antonio to find the first of 35 wineries that stretch all the way to Austin. You might have to pace yourself.

Get Some Perspective at the Tower of the Americas

Enjoy dinner, drinks, and panoramic views with a reservation at the revolving restaurant in the Tower of the Americas. The observation deck is just as good.
