601 Tower Of Americas Way, San Antonio, TX, 78205

The Basics

It would be hard to visit San Antonio and miss the Tower of the Americas, which looms over the heart of the city. Besides the observation deck and restaurant, there’s also a 4D theater ride, called Skies Over Texas, which takes you on a sensory journey through the state to watch NASA astronauts train at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, attend a local football game, watch horses running in the wild, and visit some of San Antonio’s most important attractions.

The tower is included on just about every local sightseeing tour, and it’s a stop on hop-on hop-off bus tours. Entry to the tower can be added to most of San Antonio’s multi-attraction passes.

San Antonio River Walk Cruise, Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour & Tower of Americas
Great way to get around and to get a feel for the city. We were here on a Monday and unfortunately a lot is closed but we still enjoyed the ride on the bus. Our boat driver was full of information! The Tower of the America's was a great view and the 4-D film was fun. Highly recommend the 3 activity combo!

San Antonio River Walk Cruise, Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley Tour & Tower of Americas
Great first day in town way to see some of the highlights and learn some of the history of San Antonio when visiting for just a few days. The bus driver/guide provided insightful info about the city - past, present and future. Towers of the America's admission was included with ticket package (get your camera ready for the elevator ride) as well as a ticket for the must-do boat tour on the iconic San Antonio River Walk.
