Tis the Season to Explore the Wonderful World of San Antonio

San Antonio loves to celebrate, and there's no better time to do so than during the holidays! The month of December is packed full of holiday cheer, with parties around every corner. This list will help get you on the right track for some exciting adventures this season! 

For a special treat, take the elevator to the highest vantage point downtown, The Tower of the Americas. You can enjoy an upscale meal at the revolving restaurant or simply visit the observatory deck, where you can see the Alamo City shine brightly all around you. This is a perfect family outing. 

Of course, it's the time of year to treat your friends and family to a few surprises... and perhaps yourself as well. For some uniquely San Antonio gifts, head to the Market Square, where you'll find an array of Mexican gifts, from clothing to candy. Stop by for lunch at the famous restaurant, Mi Tierra, which has been a staple here for many, many decades. 

If you're in town, take advantage of the wonderful performances at the Tobin Center, such as The Nutcracker and Cirque Dreams Holidaze. Happy Holidays!
