The 14th annual San Antonio Homes Tour invites sightseers to gallivant through a sextet of the city’s most innovative private residences in a half-day self-guided tour. Designed by members of The American Institute of Architects, each residence tickles architecture aficionados and domestic laypeople alike with energy-saving additions—including solar power, geothermal energy, and water harvesting—eye-tantalizing historic renovations, and effective poltergeist-control techniques. Throughout the self-navigated journey, tourists will visit locations in Leon Springs, Alamo Heights, Alta Vista II, and King William.
Visitors can exchange their Groupon for a wristband on the day of the event at either 232 Washington Street in King William or 230 East Oakview Place in Alamo Heights. Tour-goers are responsible for driving themselves or renting a transporter to arrive at each location.
