As residents of San Antonio, we sometimes take its features, opportunities and energy for granted. Newcomers, on the other hand, may simply not know all there is to love about this great city. So, we thought we’d direct your attention to some of our favorite third-party articles about the city and all it has to offer, whether you’re here for a short time or are putting down roots.

“36 Hours in San Antonio”

And, if you had even less time, The New York Times Travel section is ready to tell you what you shouldn’t miss. This is one of the country’s most respected sources of travel-related reviews and information, and this glowing article outlines what should be top of your “to-do” list if you were to spend just a day and a half in San Antonio.

“52 Things Every San Antonian Must Do!”

San Antonio Magazine says its list captures “the quintessential San Antonio experiences.” There are definitely things on this list that even longtime residents haven’t taken advantage of, like crashing a wedding on Marriage Island and taking a ghost tour of some of the cities purportedly haunted locations (there are more than 15!); some are whimsical adventures (dressing up to support one of the sports teams) while others will help anyone in San Antonio create lasting memories of the city.
