A trip to San Antonio is not complete without getting a taste of our vast culinary offerings. Explore all that the Alamo City has to offer – all while making plans to taste the flavors that helped us earn the title of one of only two UNESCO Creative Cities of Gastronomy in the United States.
– Today will be a culinary explosion as we begin at Schilo’s, one of the oldest restaurants in San Antonio that has been serving up German-Texan fare since 1917.
– Next, check out San Antonio in style! Download the B-Cycle app and head over to the nearest San Antonio Bike Station where you can rent out a bike for the day. Take the Museum Reach paved trail up to Pearl but along the way be sure to let the San Antonio Public Art Map, created by the San Antonio Department of Arts & Culture, guide you to magnificent pieces of art.
– You have arrived at Pearl, and Saturdays at the Pearl are dedicated to our local farmers and ranchers. Find fresh produce and meats at the Pearls local farmer’s market.
– After the market, continue to shop at the many quaint boutique shops inside Pearl, and be sure to stop in at Local Coffee and grab a brewed cup of java or a delicious pastry.
– Afterward, take a ride to the Main Avenue strip for a bite to eat at Luther’s Café. They have everything for everyone on their Texas-sized menu.
– Keep your bikes parked and enjoy the rest of the mile-long avenue that is filled with local LGBTQ+ bars and fun.
– Ride back to your hotel to rest and freshen up and let one of our GO RIO River Cruise barges peacefully wind you up and down the River Walk on one of their narrated tours.
– Infused with the influence of many cultures, San Antonio has been designated an UNESCO City of Gastronomy. Our last stop will be for a late-night grab for dinner and drinks at Maverick, a Texas Brasserie – a neighborhood hangout and food lover’s favorite.
