  • City Tours, Inc.
    The tour guides at Alamo Double Decker make sure that participants will always remember the Alamo. That's because they whisk them aboard trolleys or double-decker buses for storied tours of the famed site of Texas's battle for independence. They also unveil more than 50 other points of interest, including landmarks in the Texas burg such as the Riverwalk, San Fernando Cathedral, and the Texas Ranger Museum, complete with secret portals leading to John Wayne's hat collection. In addition, tour guides lead riverboat cruises that float down the San Antonio River past boutiques, cafés, and seasonal flowers.

  • Museum of Biblical Art
    Though each work at the Museum of Biblical Art explores themes or depicts scenes from the Bible, the museum’s mission is to provide invaluable insight into centuries’ worth of art history as guests of all backgrounds and denominations learn about art’s portrayal of Western culture. More than 11 galleries and permanent exhibits, including Mysteries, Signs and Wonders: The Art of Barbara Hines, fill the museum’s 30,000 square feet of space, beckoning visitors to interpret installations ranging from paintings and sculptures to rare books and lithograph, with notable artists including Andy Warhol, Marc Chagall, Michelangelo, and John Singer Sargent. In addition to The National Center for Jewish Art, an on-site conservation lab, pilgrimage attractions, and watercolors of archaeological holy sites, the MBA also festoons its walls with works by African-American and Hispanic artists that analyze the same biblical themes, albeit from a different cultural perspective. One of the museum’s permanent fixtures is a life-size bronze casting of Michelangelo’s Pietà, which was authorized by the Vatican and created by a Florentine foundry that practices the same wax-casting technique formerly used by Renaissance artists. Additionally, lithographs by Marc Chagall depict his interpretations of themes in the Old Testament, and line the colonnade leading from the Via Dolorosa Sculpture Garden to the gallery of contemporary art by supercomputers that needed to express themselves. Special exhibitions engage topics as colorful and varied as the art itself, from aging and the creative process to the evolution of the modern Biblical text, featuring artists like Vladimir Gorsky, Charles Sorlier, Marc Chagall, and Henrietta Milan.

  • Museum of the Weird
    Steve Busti wasn't like the other children in his classroom. While his peers were playing tag and collecting baseball cards, Steve was poring over books on Bermuda Triangle theories and UFOs. He frequented dime museums and sideshow carnivals, fascinated by the strange creatures and characters therein. As Steve grew older, he began to build a collection of oddities—trinkets he picked up from sideshows, props from movie sets, and curiosities he stumbled upon. So when he realized there was plenty of extra room in the back of the novelty shop he owned with his wife, Steve was inspired to open a museum—a shrine to all things odd, unnatural, and eerie. Today, the Museum of the Weird is a treasure trove of peculiar exhibits, lauded by reporters from The Austin Chronicle as "a remarkable collision of genre film ephemera." Steve's giant pet lizards scuttle about the space, surprising guests who are busy examining bigfoot exhibits or trying to shake an uncomfortable feeling that they recognize one of the shrunken heads. The entire scene is watched over by lifelike wax figures of Dracula and The Wolf Man, as well as a glowering bust of King Kong. After visits, guests pop into Steve and his wife Veronica's shop—Lucky Lizards Curios & Gifts—to peruse an equally unusual collection of action figures, vintage items, and locally made wares.

  • Craft House Pub & Grub
    At first glance, Craft House Pub & Grub's menu may seem like your average bar bill-o-fare, separated into categories like "beer-battered stuff" and "sandwiches". But look deeper and you'll see that this style of pub grub is anything but ordinary. Take the donut burger, for instance; the patty is made in house from a special blend of hamburger beef and rib eye steak, then topped with a special bacon cheddar cheese, and wedged between two donuts. If that savory-sweet masterpiece doesn't tempt you, what about the mac and cheese sandwich served on texas toast, or the bacon pops, which come with a chocolate porter sauce for dipping? Of course, Craft House is a pub first and foremost, and so the beer menu is equally interesting, featuring dozens of craft brews on draft and by the bottle, snifter, or flight.
