Things to Do, See, & Explore

  • Start your day by getting up – and getting active! – at Hemisfair & Yanaguana Garden in the heart of downtown. Hemisfair is more than just a park. It’s a place where San Antonio plays, meets, and eats. Explore the park’s inclusive playscapes, grab a coffee and treat at nearby Commonwealth Coffee, and pack your swimsuits and water shoes for splashing and water fun throughout Yanaguana Gardens’ inviting lush lawns and splash pads.
  • Then, explore new heights at the Tower of the Americas. A 750-foot-tall tower, this attraction gives visitors spectacular 360 views of the city! Enjoy a panorama view from the revolving Chart House Restaurant or take in sky-high views from the observation deck. On the ground level, experience a 4D theater ride and don’t forget to visit the Wings of Mexico sculpture at the base of the tower for your next great Instagram photo.
  • When hunger strikes, you won’t have to travel far for authentic Neapolitan pizza from Dough Pizzeria’s Hemisfair location. Deep in the heart of San Antonio, Dough makes their pizza with local, farm-fresh ingredients and true Neapolitan techniques. At the heart of the pizzeria, the wood-burning ovens cook pizzas to perfection in 90 seconds at over 800 degrees – delizioso!
  • For more outdoor exploring, visit San Pedro Creek Culture Park, where purpose meets beauty. Located on the western edge of the city, this world-class linear park combines public art, architectural design, local craft, and historic preservation with engineering, ecosystem restoration, and native landscaping.
