San Antonio Holidays

Wake up to the sound of mariachis in cosmopolitan San Antonio. This historic city has a distinct Spanish and Mexican heritage, blending Native American, colonial Spain, the Canary Islands, old Mexico, and Wild West cultures. We love strolling down the picturesque San Antonio River Walk, stopping at the restaurants and shops along the way. Remember to head to El Mercado to watch the elaborate and authentic Mexican dances.

  • The River Walk

    The Alamo is the famous Texan landmark where Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie were killed during the Battle of the Alamo. The curvaceous facade of the building and the legend behind it now represent liberty, heroism, courage, and sacrifice. Its history is rich and diverse, ranging from a Spanish mission in the late 18th century to a military barracks in the 19th century. The old church exhibits William B. Travis' ring, Crockett's buckskin vest, a flintlock rifle used in the battle, and more. There are also gardens, a museum, a film about the Alamo, and a shrine to explore.

  • SeaWorld San Antonio

    The beautiful main artery of San Antonio is its legendary River Walk, a developed part of the San Antonio River that stretches more than 15 miles. In addition to the serpentine downtown portion that winds past some of the city's noted restaurants, shops and lodging, the River Walk now includes the gorgeous Museum Reach to the north of downtown and the placid Mission Reach to the south. The River Walk personifies the community's dedication to experiential opportunities, including hiking the richly manicured paths of the river, taking advantage of the city's B-Cycle program or even kayaking on the southern reach, not far from four of the World Heritage missions.

  • The Pearl Brewery

    Immerse yourself in the wonders of the sea at SeaWorld® San Antonio. Experience up-close sea life interactions and dive into the world beneath the waves. For totally new experiences, head for SeaWorld’s breath-taking coastal-themed bottlenose dolphin habitat, Discovery Point™. Visit our Dolphin Lagoon, where you can observe a playful pod of dolphins from its shores, watch their behaviours from our underwater viewing area, or even reserve one of our limited Signature Dolphin Swims.

  • San Antonio Missions Trail

    The Pearl Brewery has been transformed from historic brewery to iconic cultural gathering place. Set within a limestone structure presided over by a tall, cathedral-like building, the Pearl Brewery is filled with restaurants, shops, studios, and even a culinary institute. Take in a free concert at the riverside amphitheatre or browse the eclectic shops.

  • Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch

    Explore the park's four Spanish frontier missions and their churches, including San José, San Juan, Espada, and Concepción. San Antonio Missions Trail is a place chock full with culture sites and natural areas, such as a dam and aqueduct, a grist mill, and the 270-year-old irrigation system.
