Head to the river. The northern reach, that is. Leisurely stroll down the River Walk’s Museum Reach and pit stop at Pearl for local food, entertainment and fun. Explore the San Antonio Botanical Garden and parks along South Broadway, or catch a concert on the banks of the river. The experience is yours for the taking. Come see what’s new.
In 1881, the City Brewery was founded on Pearl grounds. And, by 1916, it was the largest brewery in Texas. What’s more is, under the direction of Chief Executive Officer Emma Koehler, it was the only brewery in San Antonio to survive prohibition.
Walk, hike or bike the 1.3 mile Museum Reach for views of unique public art including an exhibit called “F.I.S.H.” that includes 27 sunfish swimming in the sky under the I-35 overpass near Camden Street. Visit the San Antonio Museum of Art, known for its collection of ancient Mediterranean, Asian, and Latin American art. Grab a light bite at Ocho in Hotel Havana for pan-Latin influences, visit the VFW Post on the riverfront, or wander through the Japanese Tea Garden and eat at the Jingu House Café. Experience the St. Mary’s Strip, a cultural hub of nightlife, food, and entertainment. Make time for a visit to the city’s lodging gem, Hotel Emma, while visiting the eateries, bars, and shops at Pearl. For family fun, consider a morning at San Antonio Zoo, visit the dinosaur exhibits at The Witte Museum, feed the ducks at Brackenridge Park, explore the grounds at the San Antonio Botanical Garden, or stop by to learn something new at The DoSeum. Come explore what’s new.
