Luxury holidays in San Antonio
When to go
Between late June and early September, San Antonio hits the 40˚C+ mark, so if you can’t handle the heat, pick a different time of year to visit.
PlanesSan Antonio’s international airport is 10 miles north of downtown | but for a bigger chance of a direct flight | use Austin as the hub. From here | it’s an easy hour-long drive to the south west along the I-35.
TrainsSan Antonio’s Amtrak (www.amtrak.com) station is on the Texas Eagle (Chicago to Los Angeles) and Sunset Limited (New Orleans to Los Angeles) routes. The stop is on Hoefgen Avenue.
AutomobilesDriving and parking can often prove problematic in this southern city. In downtown | there are several one-way streets | and the city doesn’t follow a grid system. The city has a trolley system | or streetcar | which stops at all of downtown’s main attractions.
TaxisHiring a car is your best getting-around bet but a Yellow Cab (+1 210 222 2222) can help out.
