Trip Planner: USA / Texas / San Antonio / Tower of the Americas
When passing through San Antonio, don’t miss dining in the rotating restaurant at Tower of the Americas. This 230 m (750 ft) tower, located in the middle of HemisFair park, was the tallest observation tower in the United States from 1968 until 1996. The panoramic view is best seen from the observation desk, which is easily accessible by an elevator. If you like a challenge, though, you can climb the 952 steps to the top. A 4-D movie about the history of Texas is included in the ticket price. Make Tower of the Americas a part of your San Antonio vacation plans using our San Antonio trip planning app.
Tower of the Americas reviews
Should have looked into this place more. We could have reserved a spot for dinner to really take in all the tower had to offer. Pricey to pay $20 for parking and then another amount to go to the 4th.... more

Absolutely beautiful! You have to pay to park but when you walk into the park, there are waterfalls everywhere. We arrived at night time. The trees were lit up with lights, and even though it was 30 degrees outside, the waterfalls were still flowing! There is an arcade area on the lower lever, a shopping center, and plenty of things to wonder around and see. The elevator to go up the tower is fast once you get in it, but the wait to get on the elevator takes a while. The Chart House restaurant is located at the top of the tower. Make a reservation!
Dining at the top of the Tower of Americas in the Chart House was a first class experience. Our server Iasiah was efficient, knowledgeable, & professional & made us feel as if we were the only customers there, (although the restaurant was full). They're fortunate to have him on their staff, he's what upscale service is all about. Food was delicious & artfully prepared. The 360' slowly revolving restaurant was quite the experience affording panoramic views of the entire city & Alamo, etc. below us as we dined. Atmosphere was friendly & suitable for romantic dinners, family dinners & celebrations. We recommend this restaurant if you're traveling to San Antonio, & if we're in town again would definitely be back NOTE: Reservations are recommended so call in advance as they are almost always full.
