Tucked along the San Antonio River, Hotel Emma is a AAA Five-Diamond hotel housed within a former 19th-century brewhouse. From its perch within the Pearl District, you’ll be walking distance to upscale eateries and some of the city’s best shopping.
Farther out in Texas Hill Country, where the landscape rolls languidly and wineries abound, La Cantera Resort & Spa offers a reprieve from city life. Its spa, perched atop one of the highest points in San Antonio, is a must-try during your stay.
San Antonio’s main thoroughfare isn’t a road—it’s the River Walk, a charming, pedestrian-friendly way to explore the city’s main attractions, including the San Antonio Museum of Art, Tex-Mex restaurants, the open-air Arneson River Theatre, and the 300-year-old Spanish mission known as the Alamo. The famous 1836 battle between Mexican troops and Texan settlers is remembered by thousands of visitors who tour the battlegrounds and peruse museum exhibits free of charge. If you’re looking to escape the bustle of the city, the nearby Texas Hill Country offers tubing on a river in New Braunfels or explore quaint Fredericksburg, known for its German heritage.
Spanish for “little village,” La Villita is San Antonio’s oldest neighborhood, settled nearly 300 years ago. Browse stalls of handmade wool blankets, turquoise jewelry, copper wares, and folk art made by local artisans.
