Your Guide to San Antonio, TX

San Antonio, Texas is loaded with places to visit and things to see. From the crumbling walls of The Alamo to the multitude of dining and shopping options at the San Antonio River Walk, you’ll never be bored in this area of the Lone Star State. As you plan your trip to River City, don't forget a cheap San Antonio car rental to help you enjoy the ride.

Rollin’ in the River City

Your own San Antonio rental car will save you the expense of taxis and frustration associated with relying solely on public transportation. Once you’ve picked up your car rental, roam about the streets at will. Stop by the Cathedral of San Fernando, the oldest cathedral in the United States, and marvel at its unique architecture. Just a third of a mile away is the Majestic Theatre, which opened in 1929 and still hosts regular performances.
Sports fans will have lots to do in the River City, as no visit to San Antonio is complete without a trip to AT&T® Center to see the San Antonio Spurs. The arena also hosts rodeos and festivals, so even if you aren’t in town during basketball season, you’ll have plenty to see and do. Do you love animals? Three miles north of the downtown area is the San Antonio Zoo, where you can check out the local wildlife, including exotic creatures like tigers and capybaras. After you’ve hung around with the critters, shift your car rental into “Drive” and start exploring! Twenty miles north is Six Flags® Fiesta Texas®, while SeaWorld® San Antonio is just 18 miles west.

Roaming the Lone Star State

Though the River City has plenty to offer, the great state of Texas is wide and varied—why not start your trip in a different city and then drive to your final destination? Fly into Dallas Love Field (DAL), for example, and rent a car in Dallas. The four-hour, nearly 300-mile drive will show you how diverse Texas is as you drive across the state in your car rental. Many travelers prefer to fly to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport (AUS), which is an exciting destination in its own right. CarRentals.com can provide you with cheap Austin car rentals so you can see the best parts of the city without breaking your budget.

History of San Antonio

A trip to San Antonio will probably include a visit to one of its oldest, most famous buildings: The Alamo. Originally known as the Mission San Antonio de Valero, The Alamo was built in 1744 by Spanish-Mexican explorers. In 1836, it became a focal point in the Texas’ war for independence from Mexico. After the state’s subsequent victory and entry into the United States (and the rallying cry “Remember the Alamo!” becoming entrenched in the public psyche), San Antonio became a booming cattle town, attracting settlers from all over the country. Like many Texan cities, San Antonio benefited greatly from the growth of the railroad, and is now home to over 1 million residents.

The Weather

If you’re visiting San Antonio in the winter, you can expect a fairly mild climate. The city faces occasional freezes, but rarely does the temperature drop below the low 50s—sorry, you aren’t likely to see snow here, though it’s not unheard of. San Antonio also gets about 30 inches of rain per year, most of it in early summer and fall, so keep an eye on the sky if you’re visiting during those months. Summers tend to be hot and dry, averaging over 90 degrees during the day. During the height of July and August, triple-digit numbers crop up fairly regularly, so make sure your car rental is air conditioned.

Getting Around in San Antonio

Every visitor to San Antonio needs a car rental, but the type of car you reserve is up to you. When you rent a car in San Antonio, TX, you can pick amongst roomy SUVs for a camping trip to an economy car to navigate to the Alamo in. No matter what your needs are, you can find the best deals on San Antonio rental cars through us here at CarRentals.com today.
