San Antonio, Texas, now the 7th largest city in the US, is filled with beauty, history, and culture. Skip the crowded tourist hot spots, these are the places to check out while you're in town.
Rent a Bike
Biking the mission trail is a fun way to explore San Antonio's rich history while staying active. Rent a bike through BCycle for just $10. But remember your helmet, because they aren't provided. In the King William Historic District, you can see the many beautiful and opulent houses built by German settlers in the 19th century. This area encompasses 25 blocks, and was once commonly known as Sauerkraut bend. Just blocks away in nearby South town is the Blue Star Arts Complex.
Brewery on San Antonio river
It's home to cute little coffee shops and bars, art galleries and artist workspaces, as well as the Blue Star Brewery. South town is also the best place to check out the river. The Johnson Street foot bridge was moved here from Commerce Street in 1914. This is the perfect area to explore the San Antonio river, without all the crowds. Formerly a pharmacy, the Olmos Bharmacy is an old school diner and soda shop, with live music every night Their specialty drinks are Italian sodas and milkshakes. That is delicious! The Point Park & Eats is a family friendly mobile food truck park and open air bar near Leon Springs. There are many food trucks to choose from, as well as craft beer for the adults, and a playground for the kids. The Pearl Brewery district is one of my favorite places to explore in the city.
Pearl Farmer's market
Right on the serene part of the river, it's a really hip place with lots of shops and restaurants. Another really cool thing about the Pearl Brewery district is that every Saturday and Sunday, the Pearl hosts a huge Farmer's market with over 40 local vendors. During the farmer's market, you may even be able to join in on a session of acro-yoga, or the activity combining yoga and acrobatics for physical and mental benefits. Enjoy your time in Alamo city.
