San Antonio has no shortage of natural beauty. Grab a seat on the San Antonio River Walk Tour and experience the city’s antiquity and popular sights while coasting steadily along the river’s rippling waters. The restaurants along its pedestrian-only banks are conveniently placed to grab a quick bite to eat and most feature an outdoor patio area – ideal if you’re not quite ready to surrender the views just yet. Or for a river walk with a difference, join the Natural Bridge Caverns Discovery Tour and take in the unique sight of an underground ‘river’ within one of the largest caverns within the Texan states. The Hidden Passages and Discovery Adventure tours also allow its most intrepid visitors to scale its walls and explore every concealed crevice. A day out that the kids will love can be found aboard the San Antonio Zoo Eagle Train with spectacular views to relax and entertain adult chaperones.
The best shopping can be found in La Cantera featuring popular shops such as Apple, Nordstrom and Barnes & Noble within its walls. Or for independent designers and culinary finds, head back down to the River Walk and have a look at the local produce available for sale at the farmer’s market and grab boutique finds in stores like Angelita close by. San Antonio is a place of history, where the old worlds of Old Mexico and Native America coalesce with the vibrancy of its predominantly Hispanic population. For a culturally authentic shopping experience is guaranteed in the biggest Mexican market outside of Mexico, located in Market Square.
When it comes to dining, San Antonio is all about grass roots produce. O’livia at Plaza de Armas champions the farm-to-table process by sourcing local produce and employing the imaginations of local chefs to create Latin & New American cuisine. Expect specially produced dipping oils flavoured with Meyer lemon and garlic and healthy and flavourful dishes such as pan seared falafels and the local favourite of a lamb burger served with a sunny egg. Mixtli located in Olmos Park creates progressive Mexican cuisine that draws upon pre-Hispanic culinary techniques to deliver dishes that are as artfully crafted as they are delicious. From foie gras macarons to charred octopus served on a bed of heirloom corn masa, this restaurant satisfies as much with every look as it does with every taste.
The city is not without an abundance of historical luxury hotels, such as The St. Anthony Hotel located on the River Walk, which was built in 1909. Cool marble offset by bronze works and tall ceilings speak of expansive decadence, while modern amenities such as a rooftop pool allow you to wind down style. Mokara Hotel & Spa, also located in River Walk, has the acclaim of being San Antonio’s only Forbes four-star hotel. From rooms overlooking the river to spa rooms that feature a Jacuzzi soaking tub, Mokara Hotel & Spa ensures a stay that showcases the very best side of San Antonio hospitality, with a focus on replenishing its guests from the inside out.
