Arts District

Reprinted with Permission from

If you’re from San Antonio, chances are you’re already well-versed in historic Southtown’s art, culinary and cultural marvels, but here’s a rundown of highlights for out-of-town fans. Southtown is the arts district just south of downtown, accessible via a short trolley ride. If you’re relatively hale, you may even be able to hoof it. First Friday of each month is the ArtWalk, a popular street festival and gallery open house. You’ll want to give yourself plenty of time to marvel at the mansions in the historic King William neighborhood.
