You don't need Green to Explore the Beautiful City of San Antonio



San Antonio is a treasure trove of beautiful and fun places to explore. Nature lovers will delight at what's in store for them!

Not far from town is one of the most popular outdoor destinations known as Enchanted Rock. You can go hiking, camping and rock climbing at this stunning state park. There's a reason why people have been coming here for thousands of years!

Phil Hardberger Park, located within San Antonio, is a great place to go to get your nature fix in the city. With lots of woodsy, bike friendly, trails, art sculptures and a playground for the kiddos, you can't help but enjoy this gorgeous park. Afterwards, you might want to grab some barbecue at the nearby Two Bros. Barbecue, run by one of San Antonio's celebrity chefs, Jason Dady. 

For a free evening out, head to Blue Star Arts Complex. Every first Thursday and Friday of the month is the best time to see the new art exhibits, enjoy a little wine and mingle with the local arts crowd.
