8 Best Fall Things to Do in San Antonio
Where you find trees, you’ll also find a spectacular fall experience. San Antonio has both in spades. The Riverwalk itself is lined with trees, the leaves of which slowly change to yellows, oranges, and reds before falling into the river they grow beside. But that’s only the beginning of what makes fall in San Antonio so captivating.
As the temperatures slowly but surely fall, the city comes back to life. The (sometimes unbearably) hot summer fades, and in its place remains a slightly cooler, more fun-filled fall. From Oktoberfest to frightening Halloween spectacles, San Antonio really knows how to celebrate a season.
You haven’t truly celebrated fall until you’ve celebrated it walking along the Riverwalk beneath a colorful canopy of trees. Immerse yourself in the Alamo City during one of its most enchanting seasons. Start by discovering these eight fall things to do in San Antonio.
