Sights to See
The Pearl Brewery
From the Pearl Brewery website:
"Pearl is a neighborhood and like all great neighborhoods it has a rich history that is added to and upheld by the many people who have ties to the place - the buildings, the river, the brewery since it was founded in 1881. Pearl is also a place where we like to get together – to share meals, to learn, to work, to live. With 324 apartments, fifteen restaurants and cafes, thirteen retailers and eighteen resident businesses as well as a twice weekly Farmers Market, this neighborhood is always full of life and activity.We invite friends, neighbors and visitors to join us in our plaza, in our park spaces and at our year round series of music, food and cultural events and enjoy our position on the beautiful Northern reach of the San Antonio River steps from the San Antonio Museum of Art, The Do Seum and Brackenridge Park."
From the Riverwalk website:
"The San Antonio River Walk is a public park, open 365 days a year. It is a network of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River, one story beneath approximately 5 miles of downtown San Antonio. Lined by bars, shops and restaurants, the River Walk is an important part of the city's urban fabric and a tourist attraction in its own right.
The River Walk winds and loops under bridges as two parallel sidewalks, lined with restaurants, shops, hotels and more. It connects the major tourist draws from the Alamo to Rivercenter Mall, Arneson River Theatre and La Villita, the San Antonio Museum of Art, and the Pearl Brewery."
From USA's 10 Best Website:
"Southtown, known as the arts district, is one of the best neighborhoods to visit in San Antonio - it's appealing to locals, travelers and hipsters alike for the great food, entertainment, shopping and so much more. This little community nestled within the 7th largest city in the country is beyond charming!
If you're lucky enough to be in San Antonio on the first Friday of any given month, be sure to head to Southtown, along South Alamo Street to take advantage of their thriving arts scene and arts walk. The event centers around the Blue Star Arts Complex. Other great attractions include the historic homes and the fantastic views of the residential part of the riverwalk."
From the Wild Texas website:
"Located adjacent to the San Antonio Zoo, 343.7-acre Brackenridge Park is a focal point for outdoor family activities. The picturesque San Antonio River, which originates from artesian springs north of the park, meanders by paved, tree-lined paths suitable for bicycling and walking. Additional recreational opportunities include picnicking, pedal boating, fishing, birding and nature study.
The park's primary tourist attraction is the San Antonio Zoo, home to the third largest animal collection in North America, including several endangered whooping cranes. The Zoo is open 7 days a week year-round. There is an admission fee.
Another popular attraction are the Japanese Tea Gardens -- a lush year-round garden and floral display featuring shaded walkways, stone bridges, 60-foot waterfall and attractive ponds. The gardens mesmerize and delight visitors to this natural oasis in Brackenridge Park. The Gardens are open 7 days a week from 8 AM until dusk. There is no admission fee"
