San Antonio has a surprising abundance of beautiful and inspiring places to sight-see in and around the city, but where to start?!
One of the most interesting things about a city this size - the 7th largest in the country - is the fact that it's so green. You can find all sorts of green spaces throughout the city, including a variety of parks such as Brackenridge Park and Hardberger Park. On the weekends you'll be hard pressed finding a spot to barbecue, but you might get invited to join a party, so don't let that stop you. The kids love to see the ducks and geese. With a playground, bike trails, and even a choo-choo train running through the park, it's an all-day affair!
Nature lovers will want to go even deeper - into the Texas Hill Country. If you're visiting for the first time or the 100th, Enchanted Rock is always a great adventure. Hike to the top of this stunning vista and relax, bird watch and enjoy!
If you'd rather stay inside the city and take a tour of the best neighborhoods on offer, check out King William and Southtown, just south of the downtown area. You can even take a trolley there. Art aficionados and foodies will fall in love with the Blue Star Arts Complex!
