Tower of the Americas
'Taking entertainment and fine dining to new heights', the Tower of the Americas is a must-see while in San Antonio.
This 750-foot tall tower provides the best city views, hands-down, and holds a full-service restaurant, cafe, observation deck, gift shop, mural, and exciting 4D ride. There is no way you will be bored during this visit!
The Tower of the Americas was constructed in 1968 for the Worlds Fair in honor of San Antonio's 250th anniversary. It has had a major impact on the city's economy and culture for the past 40 something years, and it's easy to see why!
Head up to the observation deck first and take a look at the breathtaking views, then stop at the Tower Cafe or gift shop. On this level, you also will see Flags Over Texas, a mural depicting the history of the iconic 6 flags of Texas, as well as the Alamo, Camino Real Trail, and much more.
Next, make your way to Skies Over Texas, the 4D ride that will allow you to 'see, hear, feel, and smell' the history and culture of San Antonio. It will take you from a Friday night football game to NASA, and several places in between. If you have the time, we highly suggest heading to the revolving Chart House Restaurant for dinner or lunch as well.
