1 – The breathtaking scenery.
From the San Antonio River Walk – a network of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River – to the Brackenridge Park – a 343 acre public park – and the Japanese Tea Garden, there are countless stunning sights to see in San Antonio.
2 – The fascinating history.
San Antonio, founded in 1718, is a city with a rich and colorful history. Much of this history can be discovered at its many museums, galleries, and areas of historical significance.
Visit the Alamo Mission – a UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses exhibits on the Texas Revolution and Texas history – or the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park – a World Heritage Site preserving 4 of the 5 Spanish frontier missions in San Antonio – or perhaps the Cathedral of San Fernando – a Roman Catholic church in downtown San Antonio from 1738.
3 – The abundance of delectable food.
With the Tex-Mex style dishes being some of the most popular around in San Antonio, it’s easy to think that may be all we have to offer – but actually, we have so much more to tempt your tastebuds!
Think food trucks, American fine dining, Belgian seafood, vegan and vegetarian homestyle cooking, Asian cuisine and pho, and so much more! In fact, some of the top restaurants in San Antonio offer Italian, Latin American, seafood, or deli-style cuisine, in addition to Mexican and Tex-Mex joints.
4 – There’s a neighbourhood for everyone.
Although San Antonio is the 7th most populated city in the United States, it is often described as more of a ‘cluster’ of several small towns – and in some cases, it actually is. Think Terrell Hills, Castle Hills, Hill Country Village, and so on – whether you’re exploring another town or traversing the downtown, there is much to be coveted and discovered.
