Whether you’re a first-time visitor looking for places to explore, a local looking for some weekend inspiration, or you’re considering relocating to San Antonio and researching into local attractions – there is no doubt this list will leave you feeling inspired to get out and explore this beautiful city.
1. The Pearl District
Having only opened in 2015, The Pearl District is a fairly new attraction in San Antonio. The 22-acre picturesque site is dog-friendly, kid-friendly and filled with locally-owned boutiques, restaurants, cafes, a brewery and more. Be sure to visit the farmers market on a Saturday or Sunday morning – it features almost 20 different vendors.
2. King William Historic District
Wealthy German immigrants settled in this area in the mid-1800s, creating a suburb of historic mansions and beautiful landscaping. In July 2011, the Texas Commission on the Arts named the King William District as a ‘Cultural Arts District’. Take a stroll around the neighborhood and be sure to enjoy a sandwich at Station Cafe or a three-course meal at Maverick restaurant.
3. La Cantera Resort & Spa
Enjoy Hill Country views from La Cantera, a 2500sq.ft luxury resort featuring a spa, infinity pools, golf courses, and a variety of dining options. Inspired by the world-famous King Ranch in South Texas, the rustic décor feels warm, cozy and inviting. We’ll warn you now – you won’t ever want to leave!
4. Japanese Tea Garden
Formerly the site of a rock quarry, the Japanese Tea Garden is one of the lesser-known tourist attractions in San Antonio, but it is one of the most beautiful. Featuring a lily pond, a waterfall, and a tea garden, the site recently went under a $1.6million renovation and is now a Registered Texas Historic Landmark.
5. McNay Art Museum
Just North of Downtown tucked away behind beautiful trees, you’ll find the hidden gem that is the McNay Art Museum. Set on 23 acres, the museum’s exterior and grounds are just as beautiful as the artwork that’s inside. The facility houses more than 20,000 works ranging from the legendary Van Gogh to contemporary artists such as Yayoi Kusama.
