You may think you know San Antonio. The barbecue, the cowboy boots, and enough swagger to fill a room, right? Well, that only applies to what’s on the surface. This is a town with a ton of surprises if you’re willing to look a little deeper.
From costumed waiters to dinosaur footprints, this place offers the unexpected for true explorers. Don’t delay in getting to know the city beyond the Alamo and Riverwalk. Snap up deals for a last-minute hotel in San Antonio and see what’s tucked away from the usual tourist experience.
Dinosaur Hiking: Ok, quiz time! How many American cities offer amazing hiking trails that come with prehistoric footprints? Drumroll, please…exactly one. San Antonio’s Government Canyon State Natural Area is the only known public land to see dinosaur footprints. It’s thought that Acrocanthosaurus and Sauroposeidon dinosaurs (try saying that five times fast), walked here over 110 million years ago.
Dinner with a Pirate: It looks like a normal restaurant on the outside. It has normal hours. It has a normal menu. And yet, the moment you walk in you’ll know you’re somewhere special. The Magic Time Machine has servers dressed up as famous characters like Zorro, Harley Quinn, Draco Malfoy, and Jack Sparrow. The interior is also delightfully kitschy and colorful, and we promise your kids will love it. We’d recommend you dress up too, but someone might end up asking you for extra ketchup and a refill.
Jazz in the Southwest: If you thought that San Antonio only played country music, you need to mosey over to Blue Star Brewing Company. While most nights have your usual sights of beer and nachos, Tuesdays are another story. Once a week is Big Band Jazz night, where a local band plays classics like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and Glenn Miller. When you book a hotel near downtown San Antonio, you’re not too far from your pillow after dancing the night away.
DoSeum and ReDo: The DoSeum museum is uniquely wonderful. During the day, it’s a kid’s dream, with interactive activities geared toward science. But they also put on ReDo events, inviting anyone over the age of 21 to enjoy cocktails and games. There’s nothing like building robots with a cold one in hand.
