Experience San Antonio
San Antonio was founded in 1718 when the Mission San Antonio de Valero, later known as the Alamo, was established. Over the 300-plus years, the city has developed into a vibrant center for art, dining, and revelry. It’s the perfect site for the 2020 National Training Conference as it celebrates its 90th anniversary and celebrates the debut of the 12th edition of RONR.
This remarkable city’s past is evident in the architecture and culture throughout the city. It is home to five UNESCO World Heritage Sites comprised of four mission complexes in the beautiful Missions National Historical Park. The Alamo mission is the fifth UNESCO site and is a short, 6-minute walk from the Hilton Palacio del Rio.
San Antonio has seemingly endless options for those looking to experience the city’s culture. Venture north to browse the San Antonio Museum of Art or catch a show at the historical Majestic Theater. Neighboring our hotel is the La Villita Historic Arts Village, a restored Spanish village. It is a must-go place for handmade goods, dining, and the NAP Fiesta!
If the San Antonio Museum of Art is too far from the action for you, check out the Briscoe Western Art Museum. The collection at the Briscoe Museum tells the story of the American West through sculpture and painting and it’s just a 3-minute walk from our hotel.
San Antonio is a foodie’s dream. Multiple cultures influence the city’s food scene, which is one of the reasons the city has been designated a UNESCO Creative City of Gastronomy. Be sure to hit one of the San Antonio Food Trails for tacos and BBQ. If you’re feeling thirsty, drift down the Margarita Trail.
