Where to Spend Spring in San Antonio

While we may enjoy mild weather during the typical "winter months," we are certainly glad to see spring descend upon San Antonio, and we're not alone. Thrillist recently named San Antonio to its list of most beautiful spring cities in the country! What makes springtime here so beautiful? Here are just a few of our favorite things about the season:

Fiesta 2015 runs from April 16 - April 26. Fiesta honors the Alamo and The Battle of San Jacinto, in addition to the heritage and culture of the city of San Antonio. The festival also involves more than 100 local nonprofit-sponsored events.

River Walk
The River Walk could easily be deemed the heart of San Antonio. Located downtown, the River Walk is lined with shops, restaurants, and beautiful landscaping. While it's a must-see destination any time of the year, it's especially gorgeous in the spring. Just a 20-minute drive from The Residences at La Cantera will get you to Downtown San Antonio's River Walk.

San Juan and Espada Missions
The missions are located along an 8-mile stretch known as Mission Reach, which includes pedestrian bridges, trails, picnic areas and pavilions. Tours and admission to the park are free to the public. Mission Reach is about a half an hour drive away.

McAllister Park
How does 976 acres of land sound for a day outside? That's what you'll find at McAllister Park! The park is made up of pavilions, a dog park, baseball and soccer fields and 15 miles of trails! The park is home to the San Antonio Road Runners, Harmony Hills Optimist Club and The Friends of McAllister Park. McAllister Park is approximately a 20-minute drive from The Residences at La Cantera apartment homes.
