San Antonio Private Jet Charter Flights and Jet Hire SA
San Antonio is one of the premier destinations in the United States and many travel sites offer vacation deals that feature the Alamo and River Walk area of this great city. The main draw of San Antonio is its beautiful downtown area, which centers on the Alamo and its storied history.
The best time to visit San Antonio is during the spring months of March through May and early in the fall during October. Any other time of year is a great time to visit as well and some of the best travel deals can be found during these “off-season” months. While it might be tough.
How to get there
San Antonio International Airport sits roughly 15 minutes from the Alamo and River Walk. Its three terminals service most of the cheater airlines, which means that if you’re willing to comparison shop between the major travel websites you’ll be able to find private jet flights San Antonio. If you do fly in, it’s a good idea to check with the different car rental services to see if you can get a good car deal. If you’re driving to or around San Antonio, it’s important to familiarize yourself with I-35, I-10, I-37 and U.S. 281. These major thoroughfares converge on the city from each direction and link it to other nearby destinations such as Corpus Christi, Houston, Dallas and El Paso.
Where to stay
Since the Paseo del Rio, otherwise known as the River Walk, and the Alamo are premier stops in San Antonio, it makes sense to find a good hotel deal and stay as close to both locations as possible. The Drury Plaza Hotel Riverwalk (105 S Saint Mary’s St) is one such place. Top of the line amenities and a detail-oriented staff provide for a comfortable stay. The Marriott Plaza San Antonio (555 South Alamo St) features a beautiful fountain and pool area surrounded by grounds that are a home to several beautiful species of birds. The Hyatt Regency San Antonio (123 Losoya) sits overlooking the Riverwalk. The staff provides excellent service and oversized rooms allow you to stretch out and make yourself at home.
What to do
The Riverwalk is a central focal point in San Antonio. During the day, families stroll along each side of the river and walk amongst the restaurants and shops while children of all ages spend time feeding the ducks that swim and cavort in the cool water. At night, the area lights up with otherworldly splendor and becomes one large party. Mariachi music mingles with rock and the clink of glasses fills the air. Another great attraction is the San Antonio Zoo, which covers 56 acres and is the home of more than 3000 animals. Apart from the animal exhibits, the zoo has special events scheduled throughout each day. For a quiet and relaxing time, San Antonio’s Botanical Gardens are an open invitation to stroll, sit, rest and enjoy over 33 acres of stunning floral beauty.
Where to eat
San Antonio, in general, and the Riverwalk, specifically, are home to many establishments that offer excellent cuisine. Pinpointing just a few restaurants will hardly do it justice, so you will need to explore above and beyond what is offered here. Biga on the Banks (203 S. St. Mary’s #100) was selected as one of the top five restaurants in Texas by Gourmet Magazine. The menu features seafood and native game all within view of the San Antonio River. Casa Rio Restaurant (430 E. Commerce) boasts over 63 years of serving fine Tex-Mex style food. The restaurant also offers the unique option of eating out on the river on one of its many riverboats. MadDogs British Pub (123 Losoya St) offers fresh fish and chips as well as a menu filled with other tempting “British Pub Grub” favorites. It’s also probably the only restaurant where you can sit back and enjoy a pint of your favorite beverage served by a kilt-wearing waiter or waitress. MadDogs strives to be the best British pub in the U.S. and offers its patrons a unique and memorable experience.
