The peak travel season in San Antonio is the summer months during school holidays, although this is not the best weather. Summer is hot and steamy and restaurants and attractions are commonly crowded. However, if you book a flight to San Antonio during the summer months rest assured there are plenty of places to cool down (museums, SeaWorld and Six Flags are among the top places to visit).
Autumn and spring bring the best temperatures and subsequently, the least amount of visitors. This is due mainly to schools being in session. However, this is also when conventions and business expos visit San Antonio. It’s easy to find cheap flights to San Antonio during the off season, but be careful about your accommodation. If there’s a convention in town the hotels are likely to be pricier. If you’re visiting San Antonio for pleasure, consider a bed-and-breakfast or a hotel not sponsoring an event for the best rates.
Deep in the heart of Texas is one of the US’s more unique cities. A distinctive blend of Native Americans, Spanish, Mexican and other immigrant cultures make San Antonio a must-visit destination. But for many travellers booking flights to San Antonio, there’s one essential must-see spot: the Alamo.
San Antonio came about in the 1700s when the King of Spain sent Spaniard families to settle in the area. The area prospered, but not without suffering. Texas and Mexico fought fierce battles to claim the land and independence. During this time was the famous siege of the Alamo, which today remains one of the most visited sites in America.
In the 1920s, San Antonio hit a crossroads and was stuck between modernising the city and preserving the authenticity of its ancestors. This dispute resulted in the draining of the San Antonio River, an effort commissioned by the city to make room for more high-rise buildings and new city spaces. This caused uproar with San Antonio locals and soon a union was formed to save the river. The fight was successful and today’s Paseo del Rio, or River Walk, is the pride of San Antonio. Today, San Antonio remains one of the biggest cultural conglomerates of the south. Flights to San Antonio continue to bring millions of travellers to the third largest city in Texas for a taste of the traditional Deep South.
High temperatures and high humidity are the norm in San Antonio from late May through September. The autumn (September to November) and spring (March to April) seasons, however, are the best times to visit and explore the city. The days are warm and the nights are cool but soothing. Temperate weather during November and December make trips to San Antonio a pleasant experience.
San Antonio’s public transportation system is cheap and easy to use. The buses run regularly at reasonable rates, but you’ll need exact change. The VIA Metropolitan Transit Service also has streetcars that stop at tourist stops. You can tell where they’re going by the colour-coded signs listing their routes and destinations. Avoid driving around the city centre and save yourself the hassle of getting lost in all the one-way streets. You can find cabs easily at the airport or major hotels, but you’ll have to call ahead elsewhere.
San Antonio International Airport (SAT) is around 8 miles (13 km) north of the centre of San Antonio.
