Discover a mix of compelling Culture and great Sport in San Antonio and Houston, Texas!

From wonderful Tex-Mex cuisine and rich history, to rodeos, unbeatable hospitality and of course, world class sporting events; a trip to both San Antonio and Houston offers a winning Texas experience for everyone. Discover outstanding theme parks, festivals celebrating art, music, food and culture; unique exhibits, history and so much more.

San Antonio is the most popular tourism destination in Texas, with visitors attracted to the city because of its unique warmth, hospitality and diversity of attractions.

The city, already famous for its majestic River Walk and world-renowned Alamo, has seen its rich history and culture celebrated globally with the recent designation of its five Spanish colonial missions as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the only one in Texas. It's an exclamation point on a tourism landscape that includes an emerging culinary scene bolstered by the Culinary Institute of America; family-fun attractions such as Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Sea World San Antonio and Morgan's Wonderland; and a rising arts and culture scene that includes ascendant sites such as the McNay Art Museum, Witte Museum and San Antonio Museum of Art.

Thanks in part to 300 days of sunshine a year, the city is also an outdoors-lovers paradise, featuring scenic hiking, biking and running trails throughout a noted parks system and more than 50 golf courses. No visit would be complete, of course, without taking in a game featuring the five-time NBA champions, the Spurs, or the iconic San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo each February.

For a truly unique experience, there’s no better destination than the dynamic and bustling city of Houston.

Home to the legendary Space Center Houston, visitors can also experience a vibrant cultural scene in Houston’s 15-block theatre district and be spoiled for choice with over 10,000 eateries scattered throughout the city, offering cuisine from 35 different countries. Like San Antonio, Houston isn’t short on sporting experiences. Home to the Houston Texans NFL team, NBA's Houston Rockets and Baseball’s Houston Astros, and with four major stadiums across the city, Houston will also host the 2017 Super Bowl on February 5th. On top of all this, The USA is hosting the Copa America for the first time this year (3rd – 26th June) and one of the semi-finals, on the 21st June, will be held at the NRG stadium in Houston.
