The hair is big, but the steaks are bigger. Yep, you’re in Texas now, partner, and not just any two-bit town. This big city is steeped in history and local pride.
San Antonio will forever be linked with the famous Battle of the Alamo, where a small group of brave Texans held their ground. They paid with their lives but inspired a nation in the process, and gave San Antonio residents eternal bragging rights. This large city is about as red-blooded as they come, but it also embraces the diversity of its citizenry. Though proudly American, it holds onto the flavor of its Mexican heritage and is also pleased to show off its “Texan Pride” as well.
The city offers many different forms of entertainment and pleasure, so what to do in San Antonio will depend on how you want to build your trip. You can find plenty of museums and historic missions, including The Alamo, to explore. Taking in culture is one of the best things to do in San Antonito to beat the high summer heat. If your boots were made for walking, however, then take a long stroll down the River Walk. It’s cooler by the water, and you’ll get to try out some of the best restaurants in the city. When you’re done filling up, poke your head into some of the cool boutique stores.
If you want to go full-on Texas, then buy yourself a cowboy hat and hit the rodeo. Bet you’ve never seen a calf hogtied so fast in your life! If you happen to stroll into town in April, you’ll be in for a special treat: Fiesta Week brings San Antonio’s Latin roots out in full force. The entire town gets in on the celebration, with over 100 events and so much food you’ll need to rent a horse just to make it back to your hotel!
If you want to cut yourself a big piece of steak and a big piece of Texas, San Antonio is your destination. Lasso yourself one of our San Antonito vacation packages before they go galloping away!
