Since Texas’ cowboy heritage looms large in the San Antonio area, there is ample opportunity to engage in western activities. But, the variety of San Antonio concerts, parks, and other outdoor activities available these days also has folks standing tall in the saddle.
From the biggest stars in the music business to intimate concerts in casual jazz clubs, San Antonio concerts hit just the right note with fans of all genres. For the big shows, check out the action at the AT&T Center where musical stars such as Van Halen and Justin Bieber have graced the stage (separately, of course). For more intimate concerts, venues such as Club Korova, the White Rabbit, and even the San Antonio Museum of Art host jazz, indie, and underground bands.
A lush collection of San Antonio parks offer biking, hiking, and jogging opportunities for active residents. Eisenhower Park, Freidrich Wilderness Park, and Enchanted Rock Park are all excellent areas to explore nature. In addition, Brackenridge Park on St. Mary’s Street is home to the world famous San Antonio Zoo.
The Alamo, naturally, leads the list of popular tours in the San Antonio area, but other more unusual ways to explore the city include tours by trolley, bus, or even Segway. In addition, the San Antonio Foodie Tour, the Seeing Art San Antonio Tours, and the San Antonio ghost tours are also worth noting.
Finally, for those determined to see the city the way some of its first residents did, there are a number of stables, including the Mayan Dude Ranch in nearby Bandera which offers horseback rides, nightly barbecues, and other cowboy-style fun. Guests at the ranch can even grab an inner tube and experience the tranquility of the Medina River. Take advantage of Texas’ wide open spaces and explore the outdoor activities in San Antonio.
