The 6th largest city in the US, San Antonio is also the 2nd largest and most populous city in the state of Texas.

Boasting many popular theme parks and sporting arenas, the city is visited by around 26 million foreign tourists per year, making it one of America’s best-loved holiday destinations.

San Antonio boasts a very strong economy, due to its affiliation to many large Fortune 500 companies and offers an extremely modern local infrastructure, with its excellent public transport system chief among this.

‘The Alamo’ is undoubtedly San Antonio’s most popular tourist attraction, and this historically significant area is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the US.

With generally mild winters, as well as its glorious summers, San Antonio tends to remain fairly busy throughout the year.

Arriving San Antonio Airport

San Antonio Airport primarily serves the Texas city of San Antonio. Located only 8km north of downtown San Antonio, taxi cabs from the airport to the city centre can be expected to cost you around $10-$14.

A wide range of public facilities, live entertainment and an extensive array of dining and shopping outlets have ensured that the airport is one of North America’s most-popular with visitors, and you will also find the airport to offer free wi-fi access to its customers.

While standard airport procedures such as check in and baggage collection tend to move very quickly and efficiently, it is worth pointing out that rental car waits can be a little lengthier, resulting in a slightly prolonged wait in the airport before heading out on your vacation.

Driving In San Antonio

Driving in San Antonio is a fairly comfortable experience. Traffic levels increase the closer you get to the city centre, and can grow painstakingly slow during peak traffic times, but providing you avoid the city at these times, your stay should be relatively short of congestion.

The local drivers are extremely courteous and friendly towards foreign drivers and obvious first-time drivers to the city and you will often see the odd ‘Drive Friendly’ sign dotted around the city to ensure that all drivers are reminded of this.

The public transport system is very good, and because many of San Antonio’s attractions are in quite close proximity of each other, you may decide to use the bus or taxi to visit these areas, while parking your rental car in one of the city’s reasonable priced and securely guarded car parks.
