Top city spots in San Antonio, USA

San Antonio is the best-kept secret in Texas. Rich in Colonial history, it’s a booming city with a small-town feel. Also, as the gateway to Texas Hill Country, this atmospheric city offers some of the best scenery in the state. Remember the Alamo! You won’t forget San Antonio!

Located 75 miles southwest of Austin in a corner of the Texas Triangle you cannot visit San Antonio without experiencing its historical past. The Alamo stands as a symbol of the spirit of the state, where Texans fought Mexicans in an ill-fated last stand that defined the soul of the ‘Lone Star State’. Located in the UNESCO San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, admission to the Alamo is free, but there is a charge for guided and audio tours. As one of the oldest cathedrals in the US, the San Fernando Cathedral is also a must-see historical landmark. The visiting experience is especially moving in the evening when a stunning light show illuminates its exterior. The River Walk, also known as Paseo del Rio, follows a network of waterways that wind around the city. This is a great way to view the city and discover shops, boutiques, bars, cafes, and restaurants. Looking for some tranquility? Then relax in the beautiful Botanical Gardens and Japanese Tea Gardens. Alternatively, head thirty minutes out of town for the Natural Bridge Caverns, and explore some of the largest natural caves in all the state. As you would expect Tex-Mex food is a staple of the area and there is no better place to taste this than Market Square. This iconic venue hosts the biggest Mexican market in the US and is liberally littered with shops and cafes, and is a souvenir-lovers ideal location. At the end of the day, head back to the San Antonio River, the cultural epicentre of the city. Here you can mix with the locals in a variety of bars and restaurants, enjoy a friendly atmosphere and watch Downtown’s glittering lights dance across the water.
