San Antonio, Texas Holidays

San Antonio is a major city in south-central Texas with a rich colonial heritage. The Alamo, an 18th-century Spanish mission preserved as a museum, marks an infamous 1836 battle for Texan independence from Mexico. Following the San Antonio River, the 15 miles-long River Walk is a landmark pedestrian promenade lined with cafes and shops. HemisFair Park’s 750-ft. Tower of the Americas overlooks the city.

Be adventurous and visit San Antonio. A city rich in history, bursting with culture, and booming with modern attractions, San Antonio invites visitors to discover what’s old and explore what’s new. From the spectacular parks and green spaces, to festive seasonal events, to local shopping, dining and drinking.

San Antonio is conveniently perched on the southern edge of the Texas Hill Country, offering visitors the opportunity to visit the best of both city and country life. Settled by Germans and Eastern Europeans, the Texas Hill Country has a culture all its own. Storybook farms and ranches dot the countryside, and you may even still hear folks speaking German in Fredericksburg, Boerne and New Braunfels. Picturesque small towns and a variety of outdoor adventures are just a short distance away – think boutique shopping down Main Street, hiking and biking through rolling, scenic terrain, and vineyard tours galore Seriously, it’s just a 90-minute drive. And the destination is well worth the drive. Experience the Hill Country culture, taste your way through local area restaurants and bars, browse shops and art galleries, and create unexpected memories that will last a lifetime.
