More About Flights to San Antonio

The city has an infectious spirit, full of interesting people and culture. With historical sites, a large choice of family activities, good dining, and natural views to enjoy, there's something for everyone in San Antonio, including cheap hotels. The St. Anthony Hotel, Riverwalk Plaza, and the Hotel Valencia Riverwalk are a few hotels worth considering for your visit.

San Antonio is Born From Victory

Before Texas declared independence from Mexico, San Antonio was first settled by Payaya Indians and then as a colonial conquest for the Spanish.

The Battle of the Alamo is what cemented the unwavering tenacity of the Texan settlers, for victory over Santa Anna happened quickly at the Battle of San Jacinto on April 21, 1836.

This legend has carried through the generations and given San Antonio a mystical air. Besides the Alamo Plaza, touring the Spanish missions along the San Antonio River is a way to remember the intricately layered history of the city. 

Nature and Architecture Go Hand in Hand in San Antonio

San Antonio is at the southern end of Texas Hill Country, so take advantage of this unique landscape. River life is prominent, and it's not unusual to be seen floating down one or fishing for largemouth bass. Take in the native trees and animals by hiking, biking, or walking on the nature trails. 

If nature doesn't stoke any good vibes, walk around the core and visit San Antonio's ancestry by finding La Villita, a series of historical buildings or seek out the King William District, located south of downtown. Here you will find the legacy of German immigrants who built grand homes in the Greek Revival, Victorian, and Italianate styles. 

For families, a visit to San Antonio Seaworld is a hit. Taking the kids to theme park Six Flags Fiesta Texas will make you parents of the year.

When to Visit San Antonio

The best months to see San Antonio is from November to April. Because of the city's historical value and reputation for family activities, summer is the peak of tourism, so you'll definitely want to avoid high hotel rates and airfares by sticking to autumn or spring.

Visiting from November to April is also the prime months for festivals. To celebrate the city's evolving multiculturalism, February is the Asian Festival, which has performances, fashion, crafts, and food. March is an important month because March 7th to the 9th is Remember the Alamo Weekend, and the biggest, splashiest crowd pleaser is Fiesta San Antonio! With 100 events to choose from, you'll want to set aside April for this lively festival.
