San Antonio sits at the southwest corner of the Texas Triangle, with Dallas and Houston making up the other two points. Situated in Central Texas, campers at San Antonio can expect a hot climate, but some reprieve during the winter and early spring months. The city attracts more than 26 million visitors a year, and for good reason. There is plenty to experience in San Antonio, whether you’re primarily a camper or a tourist.
The site with the best mix of camping and tourism is Travelers World RV Resort, which is only 3 miles from the Riverwalk and the Alamo. This particular park, like many others in the city, offers those staying at one of its 165 RV hook-ups all the amenities you’d expect from an upscale RV park. For those wishing to stay more out in the country, the Alamo River RV Ranch is a favorite. It’s only 16 miles from San Antonio, but it offers 3 miles of its own private wooded trails. In addition, it has almost a mile of its own river front for fishing, kayaking, and swimming. If you're at that park, keep your eyes open for wildlife like armadillos!
We’ve already mentioned that the Riverwalk and the Alamo are San Antonio’s two biggest draws. Outside of those attractions is the La Villita Historical Arts Village which is a combination of art galleries, and there's also traditional Mexican restaurants near the San Antonio River that’s worth visiting. Campers love to walk or bike the 5-mile Mission Hike and Bike Trail nearby. Outside the city, near New Braunfels, Texas, the Natural Bridge Caverns extend 230 feet below the surface and offer tours that will take you to depths of 180 feet. There, the natural terrain is truly spectacular, and if you're a Texas native and visited it on a class trip once, it's definitely worth a second visit. San Antonio is also a hub for Hispanic culture, so take advantage of the authentic arts, crafts and food the city offers. See you soon!
