San Antonio



Go West
San Antonio offers an oasis for those seeking the finest in western clothing, boots, hats and accessories. Try on a pair of museum quality, hand-crafted leather boots, or even have a pair custom-made, if you prefer! There are hats of all sizes and colors: ten-gallons, Stetsons and of course, sombreros. And don't forget to buy your belt buckle and spurs. Now you're ready to two-step across town in true fashion!

Hot & Spicy
San Antonio is renowned for its Tex-Mex cuisine. From chili to salsas to fajitas, you can be certain there's a recipe to heat any taste bud. A variety of shops offer spicy goods so that you may enjoy a taste of San Antonio any time, when you take home the hottest (or the mildest!) sauces, spices, peppers and salsas around. There are even jewelry, clothing and house wares to match your peppery condiments. Once your palate is nuclear activated, be sure to cool it off with a famous Texas margarita!

For art's Sake
For the beginning art collector as well as the connoisseur, San Antonio has galleries to please any eye. Stroll in and browse through the many galleries dotting the River Walk, in the La Villita Historic District, in Southtown, and around the city. There you'll see folk art, watercolors, Native, Latin and African American art, landscapes, Spanish colonial art and 19th- and 20th-century art that capture the essence of the city's past and present. Collectible wares include rugs and textiles, handmade sterling silver jewelry and Indian pottery, to name a few. There's even a gallery guide available so little will be overlooked!

Mexican Flavors & Fashion
Bargain shopping takes on a colorful, cultural meaning when visiting Market Square (El Mercado), the largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico. Rows of exotic and unique crafts, apparel, pottery, jewelry, paper-mache and more are found throughout the many shops here. There are also restaurants, an art gallery and farmers market.
