San Antonio Things to Do

San Antonio is a city packed full of adventure, education, art, music, and fun. There are an endless number of things to do every day, for both locals and visitors to the city. Regardless of what interests you most, you will be sure to find something that will entertain you while in the city. Here are just a few of the many great things to do while in San Antonio.

Check out the famous Tower of the Americas! The Tower of the Americas was built in 1968 for the World’s Fair and has been standing in the city ever since. The tower stands 750 feet tall and offers a view of the city that is irreplaceable. The tower has delicious food in the Charter House Restaurant, a Skies Over Texas amusement ride, and a surprisingly great happy hour. The Tower of the Americas offers history, entertainment, fine dining, and a memorable experience for all.

At First Friday, enjoy art, live music, drinks and other refreshments, all while mingling with the great San Antonio community. First Fridays are, as the name applies, the first Friday of each month in which the community gets together to celebrate each other’s art, music, and other entertainment forms. First Fridays are a great way to experience the inner workings of the city.

One of San Antonio’s most well known venues is Marriage Island. The venue is in the middle of the San Antonio River (another great thing to do in the city!) and is one of the most popular places for weddings in the whole country. Marriage Island is often said to be good luck for new marriages, largely because the land is shaped like a heart. Even if you are not planning a wedding, it is a great little location to check out!
