Experience all that San Antonio has to offer in a day? Impossible.
Our city is too big and too diverse for that. Even for longtime residents, finding the perfect way to spend a day in the Alamo City can be overwhelming — forget about it if you're just passing through or new to the area.
But that's what this handy-dandy City Guide is for. No, we haven't tried to capture everything to do, see and eat in San Antonio. Nor is this a step-by-step instruction guide for what we think you should be doing.
Instead, we've assembled a collection of ingredients for what could be the perfect San Antonio day — whatever that means to you. We've broken it down into sections for each part of the day. From dawn to dusk, to dead of night and back again, City Guide has suggestions on where to eat and what to do.
The guide goes beyond killer happy hours and where to find great Thai (though there's plenty of that, too). It's also got the scoop on info you never knew you needed until now: where to sneak in a post-work workout, where to get your beard trimmed, where to grab some early morning hair of the dog (or just keep the night going) where to buy gifts for your deadhead uncle.
Of course, that must-have knowledge is also included. Suggestions on Mexican cuisine, concert venues, hike-and-bike trails and coffee shops all made the cut.
Regardless of when you're in San Antonio (or if you're a resident and need a reminder of what happens when), there's almost always a one-of-a-kind event happening somewhere. We've included details for seasonal events like Fiesta, the San Antonio Cocktail Conference, the Pride Festival and more.
Whether you're a night owl, an early riser or just looking for a new place to grab lunch, this is the book you need. Keep it close day and night, all year 'round.
