Wet, wild and wonderful times.

Diversity drives the attraction of San Antonio’s Eastside. Landmarks, venues and eateries reflect the city’s rich Black American culture. From St. Paul Square, a bustling dining and entertainment district, to Dignowity Hill, a vintage residential suburb undergoing tremendous revitalization, the Eastside is filled with old treasures and new surprises.

HISTORICAL SIGNIFICANCE

Cattle ranches and dairy farms once occupied all of the land on the northwest side of the city. Things have certainly changed. Today, this neighborhood is home to popular attractions like SeaWorld San Antonio and the bustling residential community of Alamo Ranch.
