Why San Antonio? Why not??


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.
