Things to Do in San Antonio
The energetic Pearl District neighborhood has some of the city’s best shopping, eating, and biking.
San Antonio Tricentennial
San Antonio’s 300-year history began in May 1718 with the founding of the San Antonio de Béxar Presidio and Mission San Antonio de Valero (now the Alamo), whose inhabitants helped lay the foundation for the eclectic art, diverse culture and stunning innovations that have become signatures of life in San Antonio. The following centuries saw the tiny collective grow to become the seventh-largest city in the country and a major contributor to the advancement of Texas arts, tourism, cuisine and technology. Today, San Antonio is a city that revels in performances, parties and its ever-colorful character. We hope you’ll join us for the dynamic events and special exhibitions of our yearlong Tricentennial celebration and help pay tribute to our past as we look excitedly toward our future.
Established in 1718 as Mission San Antonio de Valero, for over 300 years the former mission now known as the Alamo has been a crossroads of history. Having existed under six flags of independent nations and served as a garrison for five different armies, the Alamo has a rich history and a heritage to inspire Texans and people around the world. Although the Alamo is best known as the site of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo, all 300 years of Alamo history are vital to our story. Visitors can take a guided battlefield tour, rent a self-guided audio tour, walk through the historic Alamo Church and Long Barrack Museum, listen to a history talk given by an Alamo Interpreter, participate in living history demonstrations, watch a documentary on the history of the Alamo, and much more. Admission to the Alamo is free, but there is a charge for guided and audio tours.
Natural Bridge Caverns Underground Walking Tour
While in San Antonio, enjoy a guided walking tour of Texas’ largest commercial cavern—Natural Bridge Caverns. During the 75-minute tour, your experienced guide takes you as far as 180 feet (55 meters) underground to see the caverns up close. Hear about the history of the caverns and the geological forces that shaped their curious rock formations during your tour of the stunning cave chambers.

San Antonio Missions National Historical Park

Japanese Tea Gardens
Originally a rock quarry, part of the tea garden came from a donation by George W. Brackenridge and another section from Emma Koehler. In 1915 Ray Lambert, city parks commissioner, thought it would make a nice location for a lily pond. Ultimately, it grew to become a tea garden. The latest renovations began in 2007 and cost about $1.6 million, compared with the $7,000 Lambert originally spent to open the park. It is a Registered Texas Historic Landmark and on the National Register of Historic Places.
San Antonio Zoo
With more than 8,500 animals on 56 acres, there’s plenty of fun for the whole family. The San Antonio Zoo was first established with a donation from George W. Brackenridg in the 1800s. Two of the first cageless exhibits in the U.S. opened here in 1929 and the bird collection is one of the world’s largest.
