San Antonio is a major city in south-central Texas with a rich colonial heritage. The Alamo, an 18th-century Spanish mission preserved as a museum, marks an infamous 1836 battle for Texan independence from Mexico. Following the San Antonio River, the miles-long River Walk is a landmark pedestrian promenade lined with cafes and shops. HemisFair Park’s 750-ft. Tower of the Americas overlooks the city.
Texas is a hotbed for one of the most eclectic music scenes in the US, with world-class country, blues and Latin acts regularly topping the bill at San Antonio’s bars and clubs. Strictly speaking, the must see Gruene Hall is located in New Braunfels (30-45 minutes from San Antonio), but you can’t visit SA without paying respects to Texas’ oldest dance hall. Built in 1878, the hall specialises in country, conjunto/tejano, and Americana/blues, and it has hosted the likes of Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, George Strait and The Texas Tornados, among a long list of legends. It doesn’t get any more Texan than this. Except…
Few events come close to drawing the amount of people the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo brings to the Alamo City every year, and for good reason. On top of feeling like a big state fair with rides, food and chances to see live rodeo performances as well as some really cute animals, the rodeo also books some wonderful live music.
