San Antonio:  a city bursting with Texas history and Hispanic culture, as well as good ole, rip-roarin’ Lone Star fun.

We are thrilled to make our return to Premier Club exploring this unique and lively American City.  We’ll experience it all from the luxurious base of the St. Anthony Hotel – a gorgeous setting to celebrate our participants, offering easy access to all the attractions San Antonio offers.

The blend of Mexican, European and Western cultures provides an interesting setting and experience.  Much of the city’s unforgettable landscape has grown along the banks of the 15-mile River Walk where stone paths run aside the San Antonio River connecting hotels, restaurants, and shops in the downtown core; it also links Spanish Colonial Missions, museums, public art and the Pearl, a former brewery reborn into an eclectic mix of shops, restaurants and entertainment.  The River Walk is perfect for exploring on foot or river barge.

Famed for Tex-Mex, San Antonio is gaining attention as the nation’s next big culinary destination. From notable restaurants to the Culinary Institute of America, there’s something to excite every palate. In addition, the city boasts over 50 golf courses and theme parks like SeaWorld San Antonio and Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Spanish colonial architecture, along with numerous parks and plazas make it one of America’s most picturesque cities.

A few of the must-do’s:

Remember the Alamo! Visit this historic site and learn about Texas’ struggle for independence from Mexico.

Dine at a Mexican restaurant on the River Walk.  Salud!

Take a ghost walking tour – supposedly it’s one of the most haunted cities in America.

Ride a roller coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

Discover the Natural Bridge Caverns.

Stroll through the Historic Pearl Brewery district, and grab a drink at the stunning Hotel Emma.

Hike or Bike the Missions – follow a trail along the river that connects five preserved Spanish missions from the 1700s.

And of course there’s a lot more.  For information about San Antonio check out www.visitsanantonio.com.

We look forward to enjoying San Antonio, Texas with our Premier Club guests in 2022!
