How to Spend 1 Day in San Antonio

How to Spend 1 Day in San Antonio

The story of Texas independence played out in what is today San Antonio, best known for the Alamo and the River Walk. This diverse Texas city has plenty more to offer, and even a single day gives you enough time to enjoy its highlights. Here’s how to make the most of your 24 hours in San Antonio. 

Morning: City Sightseeing

Before diving into San Antonio’s past, get a feel for the modern city with a guided sightseeing tour. Skip the hassle of renting a car and opt for a small-group tour to explore some of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods, including the King William District and the Pearl District. For a more leisurely morning, zip through downtown on a Segway tour, passing landmarks such as HemisFair Park, Tower of the Americas, the Alamodome, and El Mercado. If you’d rather go at your own pace, climb aboard the hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus to tour this Southwestern city at your leisure.  

Afternoon: Remember the Alamo

No trip to San Antonio would be complete without visiting the Alamo, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tour the grounds on your own, or take a guided or audio tour to learn more about the roll this mission played in Texas history. If you want to take a deep dive into the San Antonio missions, consider an afternoon tour of San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, home to four Spanish missions (including Mission San Jose).

Night: The River Walk

Take this evening to enjoy the lively and romantic atmosphere of San Antonio’s River Walk. Cruise along the San Antonio River by boat to learn more about the historic waterway while taking in the sights from a different perspective. The River Walk is lined with bars and restaurants, so be sure to make a reservation for dinner. For a special night out, consider a meal at the Chart House Restaurant, the 360-degree revolving restaurant at the top of the Tower of the Americas.
