Explore the rare outdoor exhibits, one-of-a-kind public art pieces, delicious cuisine, and hidden gems our city has to offer as we continue onto day two of our weekend getaway in the Alamo City.
– Fuel up for the day with some German-Texan fare at Schilo’s, established in 1917, it’s one of the oldest restaurants in San Antonio.
– After breakfast, enjoy the outdoors and celebrate legendary artist Frida Kahlo at San Antonio Botanical Garden’s special exhibition “Frida Kahlo Oasis.” Surround yourself with the Mexican native vegetation that inspired so many of the artist’s works and view a rendition of Casa Azul, Kahlo’s iconic all-blue Mexico home.
– Just two miles away, you’ll want to visit the Witte Museum to view children’s exhibits, traveling exhibits, and a renowned collection of early Texas art.
– Next stop is lunch, and that’s at Cheesy Jane’s which includes burgers, hot dogs and fried shrimp baskets.
– Just down the road from this bustling cultural corridor, do some shopping at The Shops at Broadway News, home to a collection of micro-retail businesses, many located inside renovated Airstream Travel Trailers. Here local makers and entrepreneurs sell wares such as handcrafted leather goods, vibrant house plants, vintage clothing, and freshly baked cookies.
– Once you’re done there, stay on the road to discover great pieces of public art. The City of San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture has created a robust public art map identifying pieces of public art you can find throughout the city.
– Next, take a visit to Hopscotch. Here you’ll be engulfed in interactive and immersive galleries designed by local artists whose aim is to elicit joy and wonder in the spaces they create.
– Lastly, enjoy dinner at Chart House Restaurant located in the Tower of Americas where you’ll take in sky-high views from the observation deck.
