When most people think about sports in San Antonio, they think about the Spurs. However, a new team is gaining traction: the San Antonio Futbol Club (SAFC) was founded in 2016, and plays at Toyota field off of Wurzbach during the regular USL season. Unlike other sporting events, which often involve expensive parking, long lines, and bad seats, SAFC games feature free (or very cheap) parking and arguably the best tailgating in San Antonio. The stadium is relatively small, meaning you always have a good view of the players and the games are fast-paced and raw. The fans are diehard, the energy is undeniable, and the location is easy to get to. The best nights to go are one-dollar beer nights -- yes, they exist, and yes, craft beer is included.
Every Tuesday, a few hundred bicyclists meet up at Burleson Yard Beer Garden to do a 10-to-12-mile bike ride through downtown San Antonio. Whether you have a bike or just rent one at a nearby shop, this is a perfect early-week activity to take visitors out on a tour of the city -- or, to just head out on your own and meet a hundred new friends. Once you’ve finished your ride, Burleson Yard offers the perfect low-key spot to have a drink, play ping-pong, and eat a delicious assortment of foods from the nearby food trucks.
Take in the city lights from the Hays Street Bridge
The Hays Street Bridge is a historical landmark, and offers a breathtaking view of San Antonio without the flood of visitors; the best way to get to the bridge is to park at Alamo Beer Company, and walk up from there. Yoga classes are occasionally offered on the bridge as an added bonus, but after getting your fill of the view/downward dog, go ahead and treat yourselves to some beer, food, and live music at Alamo Beer Company.
