Why San Antonio? Why not??

March 3rd, 2016 by

tourists-793814_1280

San Antonio offers the world to its visitors . . . and the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit in August is the perfect opportunity to bring your family for some fun!

If you appreciate culture and history, San Antonio’s Market Square is an ideal representation of preserving the City’s Spanish and Mexican culture for present and future generations. And who can think of San Antonio without thinking of The Alamo? A visit to The Alamo’s Shrine and Long Barrack Museum will also introduce you to the rich heritage of the City.

Just around the corner from The Alamo is the Rivercenter Mall (located on San Antonio’s famous River Walk). The Mall offers 125 stores, dining and entertainment. (Visit The Shops at LaCantera for another upscale shopping experience!) While you are at the Rivercenter Mall, you can purchase tickets for a boat tour (provided by Rio San Antonio Cruises) or you may choose to enjoy the natural beauty of the “Paseo del Rio” (Walk of the River) by foot.

You may also want to visit The King William Historic District which covers a 25 square block area and is Texas’ first Historic Neighborhood District.

You will be delighted at your choices of restaurants. Biga on the Banks, EZ’s Brick Oven and Grill and, for Texas-sized portions, Lulu’s Bakery & Cafe are just a few recommended to me by a friend and local resident.

Arrive in San Antonio a day or two early, and you’ll have time to spend at your choice of several popular tourist attractions including:

SeaWorld San Antonio,

Six Flags Fiesta Texas, and the

San Antonio Zoo

And don’t leave the Alamo City without a final spectacular view from the 750-foot high deck of The Tower of the Americas.

Summit 2016 Local Attractions: The River Walk

January 14th, 2016 by

river walk 3

The history of the River Walk begins back in the late 17th century when a group of Indians discovered this beautiful land and river area. As celebrations were in order, the Indians thought this was the perfect place to camp for “Saint Anthony’s day”, thus the name San Antonio. Fast-forwarding 250 years, past many deadly floods and The Alamo, a group of men eager to improve their city, control the flooding and provide for their community pitched their ideas for the River Walk to the authorities. On March 14, 1941, construction was complete and a river carnival and night parade were held in celebration of the newest, most exciting development in San Antonio. The River Walk has since become a local favorite and one of Texas’s most visited attractions.

Over the years many additions have been made such as exciting nightlife, a variety of shops, restaurants, and entertainment for all ages and interests. Come visit for yourself!

Did you know the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit is being held in San Antonio on August 1-5? Registration opens soon, so gather your team and be apart of one of the best performance improvement conferences, network with a variety of colleagues and experts from around the world, and enjoy the beautiful city of San Antonio.

Summit 2016 Local Attractions: The Alamo

January 5th, 2016 by

Alamo_pano

The Alamo, an historical icon of the Texas Revolution located in none-other-than San Antonio, Texas. This old building made of limestone was the fortress and safe house for the Mexican army, but in the Battle of the Alamo in 1836, the Texas rebels forged their way in and gained control. Now it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in San Antonio and has inspired a blockbuster movie released in 2004.

Many have wondered where the name “The Alamo” originated, assuming it has a deep, cultural meaning. Surprisingly, “The Alamo” is translated to “cottonwood”, and many scholars believe that name was chosen because of the greenery surrounding the building. However, scholars are unsure as to why they chose “cottonwood”, and if there was a more significant meaning behind it than just simple trees. It’s always interesting to learn the small, fun facts about such iconic places.

Did you know that the 2016 Global TapRooT® Summit is being held in San Antonio August 1-5? The countdown begins and we are looking forward to sharing best practices, learning from keynote speakers, networking with our wonderful Friends and Experts and visiting the beautiful city of San Antonio and all it has to offer.
