San Antonio is central to Texas’ rich history and draws in millions of visitors from around the world who want to see and experience the River Walk, Alamo and all the food, culture, music and art that the city has to offer.
Spanish missionaries settled the land in 1691, establishing the historic landmarks that tourists visit today, including what is now known as The Alamo. The 1836 battle here made the mission famous, and there are ongoing preservation efforts and updated exhibits to keep visitors passing through the historic site.
The Riverwalk serves as the main hot spot for tourists, with shopping at the Rivercenter Mall and many small boutiques, as well as bars, restaurants and live music venues. HemisFair Park is home to many small shops as well as the Tower of the Americas, where guests can get panoramic views of the city. And Sea World and Fiesta Texas are big attractions, especially during the summer when tourists want to cool off, see a show and ride thrilling rollercoasters.
And just north of the city lies New Braunfels, where visitors can experience rich German culture and slow down for a relaxing ride down the Guadalupe or Comal rivers, browsing antique shops and ending the day with live music at historic Gruene Hall.
