5 Fall Events to #TrySomethingNew in San Antonio
Fall is coming, and so are these five exciting events in San Antonio. Touring historic Missions, hunting ghosts, and indulging in good food and beverages are all the perfect way to at least pretend like it’s not 100 degrees outside still.
WORLD HERITAGE FESTIVAL TOUR DE LAS MISIONES
Mission Park Pavilion | 6030 Padre Drive
Tour de Las Misiones is the perfect way to make time for history while learning about San Antonio’s historic Missions. Maybe you haven’t been out to the holy grounds since you were a kiddo, or maybe you’re new to the city and you’d like to pay your respects to our city’s history. Well, pack your biking, walking, and running gear, because this one-of-a-kind event will allow participants to get in a healthy trip, all while being taken by tour escorts through the sites themselves. If you don’t feel like breaking a sweat, you can always go and enjoy the scenery, or buy the collectible T-shirt and goodie bags. We won’t tell anybody. https://www.worldheritagefestival.org/

This September, Culinaria invites guests to the Wine + Food Festival, which includes special events like cocktail parties, culinary classes, tastings, and foodie fun.
