Around Town is a series where I take you on a tour of my latest home, San Antonio, Texas, a city rich in history, culture, and Tex-Mex food. So grab your sombrero, put on your boots and let’s begin exploring!
Located in downtown San Antonio and standing at 750 feet tall, the Tower of the Americas is a wondrous sight to behold. The tower, constructed for the 1968 World Fair or HemisFair in an effort to symbolize the progress of the Western Hemisphere, provides spectacular panoramic views of the city.
Ascending more than 500 feet via glass-walled elevators, you will find an observation deck and a revolving restaurant/bar, which is truly an incredible experience. A little more on the expensive side, the restaurant rotates slowly as you dine in order to provide 360 degree views of the city. So if you like delicious food with a side of scenery and romance, this is the place for you! And if you’re looking for romance on a smaller budget, you can still enjoy the sunset or city lights from the observation deck for a small fee.
