Entertainment in San Antonio

Entertainment options abound in the heart of San Antonio. The showcase piece of this great city is the iconic 15-mile River Walk, dotted with weeping cypress trees and romantic stone bridges. Stroll leisurely along sidewalks or cruise the river on a guided tour. Pick up a water taxi for easy access to downtown or the museum district. Shop, dine, and enjoy the strumming sounds of mariachi bands as you peruse boutiques and markets. At night, the area comes alive with activities like live music, sports bars, and happy hours. In the springtime, experience the annual Fiesta San Antonio, as flower-laden floats drift down the river in a parade celebrating the region’s diverse cultures.

Get up close and personal with animals and sea creatures at SeaWorld San Antonio, where you can swim with the dolphins, belugas and sea lions, or meet a penguin. Experience thrills on one of the roller coasters or traverse the cooling white water rapids on a true adventure. Laugh at comical pet shows featuring locally rescued animals, or catch Shamu in a jaw-dropping water extravaganza.

Each February, the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo welcomes visitors from around the country for an 18-day extravaganza featuring the top 50 rodeo wranglers in the world who put on a show like no other. You can also enjoy other activities like a petting zoo, carnival, educational exhibits, and food and shopping booths for a true taste of Texas cowboy culture.

San Antonio is home to wonderful theatres, including the Aztec Theatre, an architectural landmark located in the heart of downtown, where big-name musical acts, plays, and stand-up comedy are on the bill. Don’t forget the Majestic and Empire Theatre, a premier performing arts facility where you can catch a Broadway show, concert, or other live event.

Experience the excitement and pageantry of a professional sporting event like the NBA’s San Antonio Spurs, or a professional golf tournament, the Valero Texas Open, held each spring at TPC San Antonio.

Take a trolley or ghost tour, enjoy a few laughs at a comedy club, or stay close to home and catch a movie under the stars at our Hyatt Residence Club San Antonio, Wild Oak Ranch.
