Known for its scenic skyline, championship NBA team and diverse cultural influences, San Antonio is one of the most vibrant cities in the country. From its historic missions to the bustling River Walk to some of the finest Mexican restaurants on this side of the Rio Grande, Alamo City’s myriad attractions are nothing short of spectacular.

Enjoy hours of family-friendly fun at sprawling theme parks, indulge your artistic side at world-class galleries, or simply dance the night away at any number of trendy nightclubs. Whether you’re signing a lease at Encore 281, Dalian Monterrey Village, Agave, The Residences at La Cantera or any other Greystar apartment community in San Antonio, enjoy this lively metropolis deep in the heart of Texas.

One-of-a-kind cultural destinations

No matter what you’re passionate about, it’s easy to get inspired in San Antonio. Explore the charming shops and cafés lining the renowned River Walk, or grab your reusable shopping bags and head to Market Square, the largest Mexican market in the United States. Spend an afternoon strolling through the statuesque Alamo, and see for yourself why this former Spanish mission is the most popular tourist attraction in the Lone Star State.

Modern art enthusiasts can marvel at American and European masterpieces at the celebrated McNay Art Museum, while more nostalgic connoisseurs can take a tour of the San Antonio Museum of Art, known for its collection of ancient Mediterranean and Asian pieces. If you prefer performance art to paintings and sculptures, look no further than the stunning Majestic Theatre, which hosts a variety of orchestral performances, dance shows, concerts and plays throughout the year.

Endless recreation for the whole family

San Antonians of all ages will enjoy a Saturday at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, famous for its towering thrill rides and exciting live shows, and animal lovers will jump at the chance to visit SeaWorld San Antonio or the sprawling San Antonio Zoo and Aquarium. During the warm summer months, get your adrenaline pumping at the state-of-the-art Schlitterbahn water park in New Braunfels, just a 40-minute drive away. Rather spend your free time in a stadium seat than strapped into a roller coaster? Cheer on the Spurs at AT&T Center, the Silver Stars at Freeman Coliseum and the Scorpions at Toyota Field.

For a more serene entertainment experience, explore the winding paths and picturesque pavilions of beautiful Brackenridge Park, or visit the San Antonio Botanical Garden, home to an array of gorgeous plants and bubbling fountains.

Enticing dining, exhilarating nightlife

Treat yourself to decadent Southern fare with a south-of-the-border twist at Good Time Charlie’s, or indulge in modern American fare at Feast, known for its chic ambiance and artisanal cocktails. Grab a table at Mi Tierra for authentic Mexican dishes and freshly baked pastries, and stop by Pico de Gallo for live mariachi music and dangerously delicious margaritas. If you’ve never tried Texas barbecue, Texas Pride is the perfect place to see what all of the fuss is about.

Texas two-steppers are encouraged to check out Cowboy’s Dancehall, which offers live country music and dance lessons every Wednesday and Thursday, and beer aficionados will be in heaven at the Friendly Spot, which boasts an enormous selection of ice-cold brews on tap. For creative libations and a trendy vibe, swing by Paramour or Blue Box Bar, two of the city’s hottest cocktail lounges.
