Symbol of HemisFair '68 and a
world famous San Antonio landmark, the
Tower of the Americas offers visitors an
extraordinarily inspiring view
of Texas' most unique city from its 605 foot high observation decks
and revolving restaurant.
In addition to the Tower of the
Americas, shops and the relaxing water park, HemisFair Park hosts two
educational facilities, Texas A&M University Engineering Extension
Service and the Universidad de Mexico. Also located in the Park are
the Mexican Cultural Institute and the Institute of Texan Cultures,
which offers year-round exhibits on the history and people of the Lone
Star State and sponsors the popular Texas Folklife Festival each year.
HemisFair Park is located in
downtown San Antonio adjacent to the Convention Center, in the shadow
of the Alamo Dome. HemisFair Park and Tower of the Americas parking is
available off Bowie St., east of the park.
