Tower of the Americas Tours

star-4.5
16 Reviews
Tower of the Americas
Located in the center of Hemisfair Park, this 750-foot (229-meter) Tower of the Americas offers one of the best aerial views of San Antonio. The Flags Over Texas Observation Deck affords a bird’s-eye view of iconic sites, while the rotating Chart House Restaurant offers upscale dining with panoramic views of the city.

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. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Tickets to the tower include unlimited access to the observation deck and the 4D theater.
  • Outside food and drinks are not permitted in the building.
  • The Tower of the Americas is fully wheelchair accessible.

How to Get There
The Tower of the Americas is in downtown San Antonio, within easy walking distance of the River Walk. If you’re coming from further away, your best bet is to drive or take a taxi or rideshare as public transportation is limited.

When to Get There
Each attraction within the Tower of the Americas maintains its own hours. The observation deck is open daily throughout the year from late morning until late in the evening, with slightly extended hours on Friday and Saturday nights. The rotating restaurant is open every day for dinner and also serves lunch on weekdays. 

Events at Tower Plaza
The plaza at the base of the Tower of the Americas hosts festivals and special events throughout the year. Stop by to enjoy an outdoor concert or movie screening, take a Zumba class, admire custom autos at a car show, or shop local vendors’ stands on a market day. Check the calendar before your trip to see what’s happening.
