San Antonio is truly a city of endless possibilities. Steeped in tradition yet embracing the future, visitors find themselves immediately drawn to the vibrant culture that is San Antonio. It offers the rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of early Spanish colonial life in the Southwest. As the first civilian settlement in Texas, San Antonio de Béxar was founded in 1718. Many of these early architectural and cultural elements remain, allowing you to see the city’s storied past. Anchoring the city is the River Walk that winds through the city center offering cypress-lined paths, stone bridges and lush landscapes along with easy access to many of the city’s cultural hot spots and historic sites. 18th century missions still stand as does La Villita, San Antonio’s first neighborhood, and the King William Historic District, originally founded by German merchants.
San Antonio boasts a wealth of restaurants and, when the sun sets, visitors can take advantage of live music all year long. From country-western to Tejano’s Latin rhythms to jazz, this city has it all! San Antonio sits in the Texas Hill Country which is chock full of beautiful countryside, mouthwatering food, world famous wine trails, rich German culture and plenty of outdoor activities.
Without a doubt, San Antonio is a destination that will not disappoint!
