Best Theatre
Absolutely flawless and eye-catching architecture. The colors to the intricate details. Designed by architect John Eberson in 1929, the theatre is now listed on the National Register of Historical Places and is a Texas Historic Landmark.
Municipal Auditorium, the structure is today referred to as the Tobin Center. Renovations were completed in 2014, revealing a gorgeous interior that matched the beauty of the facade, though on a modern level. The world-class venue is truly a sight not to be missed. You can walk from The Pearl to The Grotto and then to the Tobin Center. Best sightseeing adventure.

Antonio’s is home to some beautiful-universities, Our Lady of the Lake among them. At the West Side university, the chapel will have you in awe – whether you’re religious or not. The English Gothic chapel took 28 years to build.

Denman Estate Park, like most parks, is a green, vibrant and a tranquil getaway within city limits. However, this particular park distinguishes itself in the most artistic and remarkable way as it displays a stunning Korean monument, hand-crafted by artisans. With this red and black beauty contrasting the green and brown natural background, you can’t help but become fixated on such a sight. Surrounding the monument is a still pond and lawn to kick back and take in the view.

Running out of the former Pearl Brewhouse, the 1894 building is now one of SA’s most beautiful hotels. The landmark was designed by Chicago architect August Maritzen in the Second Empire style, and modern-day designers did a solid job of keeping the character of the structure intact as it transformed into a hotel. Everything is gorgeous here, so you’ll be enamored the entire time.

Brackenridge Park seriously has it all. There’s so much to do in the area – from sports and the zoo to just exploring the gorgeous grounds. Do yourself a favor and do just that – explore the park. You’re bound to discover serene spots that will have you feeling peaceful and much appreciate for such a place.

The building and grounds itself are nothing short of breathtaking. The mansion was built in 1929 for Marion Koogler and her second husband Donald T. Atkinson (her first hubby Sergeant Don Denton McNay died from the Spanish flu shortly after they married). Walk around the grounds and admire the gorgeous home-turned-museum. And to truly appreciate the sights, post up in the courtyard. Just look at that view.

You seriously can’t get a better view of SA than at the Tower of the Americas. Take a ride up the elevator and spend some time on the observation deck to get a view of the city from 750 feet in the air.

Forget about the restaurants and clubs on the River Walk, there’s a true sight awaiting you at the Grotto. You can see small waterfalls and a creepy as hell face in the rocks that make makes for an interesting spot.

Neighborhoods
Feels like a small town in the middle of a big city. My place is right at the edge and next to Alamo Heights. Love the location in the middle of all the fun stuff and of the small town feeling around it. Also, Central Market is close by and The Pearl.

Stroll through the King William district and indulge in some real estate history. While the newer additions of the neighborhood are quirky and artsy, the long-standing homes here are seriously breathtaking. It seems like no two homes look alike, though many fit into the Greek Revival, Victorian, and Italianate styles.

While many flock to the Pearl for the food scene and things to do, strolling the grounds is essential to your visit to. Specifically, the river basin where the barges change direction makes for a beautiful sight. The smaller waterfalls and rushing current make for a calming soundscape, too. Consider it the cherry on top. -San Antonio Current
