Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

San Antonio’s pleasant weather and reputation as a major tourist destination means there’s never a shortage of activity. For Texas history buffs, no visit to San Antonio would be complete without a visit to the Alamo mission, which currently operates a museum and historical tour, receiving millions of visitors each year. Another of the city’s most popular destinations is the San Antonio River Walk. A sunken pedestrian thoroughfare, the River Walk winds through the city along the San Antonio River, and is lined with shops, restaurants, historic missions, and various attractions. The River Walk is a central component of many area celebrations, such as Fiesta San Antonio — a yearly city festival dating back over a century, commemorating the region’s historical battles. Fiesta San Antonio lasts approximately 2 weeks, draws millions of people, and consists of hundreds of events, such as a boat parade of floats travelling the San Antonio River.

San Antonio is also home to what was the first modern art museum in Texas, the McNay Art Museum. Founded in 1954, the McNay Art Museum occupies a 23-acre expanse consisting of founder Marion Koogler McNay’s 1927 mansion, the museum, and a Japanese-style garden. The museum consists of over 20,000 art objects, including works by famed artists such as Georgia O’Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, and Diego Rivera.

Transportation

San Antonio operates a comprehensive public bus system called VIA, which consists of the standard city bus as well as VIAtrans, a system geared toward disabled individuals. VIAtrans trips can be scheduled approximately a day in advance along VIA’s standard bus routes. Eligibility must be determined for approval to utilize VIAtrans services. Seniors age 62 and older can obtain a Reduced Fare ID which reduces the cost of bus fare to only 25 cents from 9am to 3pm on weekdays, and permits free rides on weekends. Buses generally run from around 5am to 10pm, with some downtown buses running later.
