best spots to visit in san antonio

From June 6 – 7, we’re hosting a short, one-class CME conference in San Antonio. That leaves ample time to explore the city on a quick trip! Below are some spots we recommend you check out while you’re in town.

The River Walk – Of course we’d start out our list with The River Walk. Winding through the heart of downtown, the The River Walk is lined with plenty of restaurant and bar options. At night, thousands of strings of lights illuminate the water, making it a unique and romantic spot to take a date. Plenty of festivals will feature boats floating down the river, and the San Antonio Spurs even celebrated their NBA championships with a floating parade down the water!

The Majestic Theatre – You can catch any kind of show at The Majestic. From comedians to musicals and concerts, the Majestic offers it all in a great location downtown close to restaurants and bars. The venue is small and cozy, making for an intimate and memorable experience, and the building’s 1920s interior has been kept in perfect condition.

San Antonio Missions – The area is home to a collection of beautiful Spanish missions, and the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park includes a walking trail featuring five missions. Learn about some of the earliest Spanish colonization and take in the beautiful architecture of the buildings. The city has more than just The Alamo, so visit them all!

Natural Bridge Caverns – If you love caves and geology, you can’t miss Natural Bridge Caverns. Guided tours last over an hour and give you plenty of time to explore the winding and rocky paths of the caverns. Just be sure to wear good shoes for walking and go into a tour knowing you’ll get hit with a few water droplets from time to time!

San Antonio Botanical Gardens – Spring and summer are perfect times to visit the city’s colorful and vibrant botanical gardens. The layout is easy to follow and the flora represents all sorts of flowers and trees that call Texas home. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a little piece and quiet after a long day.

Six Flags Fiesta Texas – Bring the family out for some fun and adventure at Six Flags Fiesta Texas! There are plenty of rides for young ones, adrenaline junkies, and water park enthusiasts. Grab lunch at one of the parks several restaurants with a variety of domestic and international cuisine, or do a little shopping for Texas souvenirs to take back home!
