The view is fantastic. Our luncheon was excellent; fresh shrimp cocktail and superior steak. Cocktails were generous and reasonably priced. All around worthwhile experience.

The Tower of the Americas was built for a World's Fair many years ago. At over 700 feet high, it offers guests a 360-degree view of the city. Additionally, there is a 4D theater, gift shop and restaurant on site.
At the top, guests are provided the entire history of the area before statehood up until present. It's very fascinating to learn about the rich and diverse aspects of Texas history!
HINT: $2.00 off coupons can be found on the back of Tower brochures
HINT: Ticket is good all day, so you can come and go as you like. HOWEVER, parking is NOT, so beware.

This Tower gives a wonderful view of the city and surrounding area. It's open for the full 360 degrees and you can see everything.

This was one of the best things we did in San Antonio! Watch the 4D movie downstairs then take the elevator to the top. You won’t be sorry! The panoramic views are stunning. We went on a weekday in November. There was no wait for the elevator either up or down. There’s an enclosed area as well as an open area to see the view. It was too windy for us in the open area. Hope to go back soon.
