Book a villa at La Cantera Resort and Spa to incorporate a bit of luxurious hill country living into your Texas getaway. With its pools, spas, and golf course, La Cantera offers a rejuvenating reprieve from city life—and downtown San Antonio is only 20 minutes away.

While French cuisine may not be the first thing that comes to mind when dining in Texas hill country, one visit to the recently-opened Brasserie Mon Chou Chou will have you convinced that the pairing is a match made in heaven. The chic establishment combines French comfort food with a sophisticated ambiance and is the perfect spot for a night out on the town.

Paloma Blanca (@palomablancasa): 

If you’re looking for local Mexican (mouthwatering) flavor, look no further than Paloma Blanca—we recommend the ceviche and the shrimp fajitas. (And the margaritas, of course).

To Visit:

McNay Art Museum (@mcnayart): 

San Antonio boasts a flourishing art scene, featuring family-owned galleries like Ruiz-Healy Art, contemporary art spaces like Blue Star, and artist-in-residence exhibitions at Art Space. Spend an afternoon gallery-hopping in this vibrant Texan city, and be sure to spend an hour or two perusing the famous McNay Art Museum, as well.

San Antonio River Walk (@sariverwalkfun): 

Visiting San Antonio and not strolling along the River Walk is like traveling to Paris and bypassing the Champs-Élysées. These days, you can make the scenic journey by boat—kayak, to be exact. A UNESCO world heritage site, the 15-mile River Walk extends through the Pearl all the way to the San Antonio missions.

The Pearl District (@visitsanantonio): 

Enjoy the Pearl District nightlife—the area is home to a vibrant restaurant scene and a variety of beloved local watering holes. Located close to downtown, the Pearl hosts a bustling farmers market on the weekends.
