Read on to learn what we love most about our beautiful and brilliant city. Whether you’re visiting Alamo City or a fellow San Antonio business owner, you’ll also discover how to find inspiration in some of our favorite spots boasting both beauty and brains.

Escape to the River Walk

Sure, the River Walk is an obvious place to gather inspiration in San Antonio, but how often do you actually enjoy it? Head over to one of your favorite River Walk restaurants during your lunch break to get some fresh air.

Want to surround yourself with nature? Consider exploring the River Walk near the King William and Southtown neighborhoods. Gorgeous trees, babbling brooks and other scenic surroundings await!

Interesting fact: A deadly flood in 1921 prompted city officials to develop flood control measures, including a pedestrian walkway, that eventually led to the River Walk’s construction. The destination is as much a tourist attraction as it is a flood prevention measure, making it gorgeous and effective. It’s the best of both worlds! 

Explore Hemisfair Park

Tower of the Americas in Hemisfair Park


San Antonio’s skyline would be incomplete without the Tower of the Americas. Standing tall at 750 feet, the observation tower and restaurant was built as the main structure of the 1968 World’s Fair (known as HemisFair ‘68). The fair’s theme, “The Confluence of Civilizations in the Americas,” celebrated the city’s heritage and the different people who lived across the region.

Once again, Alamo City blended beauty with something especially important: the recognition and celebration of different cultures. Walk through the park or take in panoramic city views in the tower’s restaurant next time you’re in downtown San Antonio. 

Historic Market Square

By now, you can probably tell that we love culture—and it’s bursting at the seams everywhere you turn in Historic Market Square. Prepare to dance to Ranchera music, witness colorful works of art by local and Mexican artisans, and, of course, devour some of the finest Tex-Mex dishes our city has to offer.
