Welcome to San Antonio

Around the Hill Country

Enrich your getaway to La Cantera by exploring the sights and sounds that make the Hill Country so unique. Wineries, rolling hills, ranches, and more set this piece of Texas apart from other rural areas. Amid all the relaxing, be sure you also make time to venture off the Resort to explore.

Texas Wildflowers

Texas is home to more than 5,000 species of wildflowers, and thanks to Lady Bird Johnson and the launch of the Highway Beautification Act, you can take in the splendor of these blooms from the comforts of your car. Try Farm Road 1323 in the spring for some of the state’s best wildflowers.

Find a Watering Hole

Natural springs and sceneic watering holes are the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer day. A few to add to your list: Blue Hole in Wimberly, Hamilton Pool, Krause Springs, Blanco State Park, Pace Bend Park, and Barton Springs in Austin. 

From Houston

If you live in Houston, you probably know that the quickest way to arrive in San Antonio is to hop on I-10 East. What you may not know is that you can meander through several small towns that only add about 30 minutes to the trip—stops not included. 

Hruska's Store & Bakery treats

Hruska's Store & Bakery

Find this bakery in small town Ellinger, just off Highway 71. This is actually an authentic Czech bakery, so you'll be able to try unique sweet and savory treats like kolaches.

Junk Gypsy rose to fame via HGTV, and has since put tiny Round Top, Texas, on the map. Shop antiques, cowboy boots, unique wearables, and more.

From Austin

Spend just under two hours cruising down I-35 and you'll find yourself in the Hill Country in no time. But if you make a day of the trip, you'll have all the time you need to see lakes, parks, museums, and more—some of which don't even require a detour. 

Canyon Lake

Canyon Lake

Taking a dip is only one of many things you can do on this detour. Take in the views at the overlook or swing by Comal Park for a picnic.
