Halloooooweeeeen in San Antonio


If, like many others, Halloween is your favorite holiday of the year then you probably already have your day of spooks and surprises planned out. If, on the other hand, you’re still trying to figure it out, check out our list of must-do’s in San Antonio for Halloween.

Pumpkin Patch

Start the festivities off right by visiting University Methodist Church’s pumpkin patch, which takes place every day from 9 am to 8:30 pm, and is a great family adventure no matter what your age! The pumpkin patch is located at 5084 DeZavala.

Fright Fest

Six Flags’ famous Fright Fest is back this year with even more light-hearted scares. If you dare, step into their various haunted houses, including a medieval torture chamber filled with, they claim, hundreds of tortured souls. Their “Buried Alive” haunted house takes you through creepy tunnels and passageways towards the undead while “Wicked Hollow” takes you into a mysterious forest of deadly wolves and witches. Make sure to get some cotton candy after because nothing will dispel nightmares better than pink, fluffy sugar!

Dia de Los Muertos

On October 30, from 4-7:30, Cherry Street Bicycle Co-op will be hosting a free block party and ride to the cemetery on the Eastside in honor of those who have passed. Besides creating an altar, they’ll have face painting for the kiddos. Bring your own bike or they’ll have one for you. They will be shutting down the New Braunfels corridor from Nolan to Burnet and fill the streets with engaging family-friendly fun! Other activities include a costume contest, moon bounce, haunted house, games for all ages and other entertainment.

13th Floor

If Haunted Houses are your thing, then nothing gets you screaming more than the 13th Floor, considered the #1 Haunted House in America. This year, 13th Floor is introducing a new attraction called “Feral Moon,” that features a cursed cemetery filled with crypts and tombs where a dark werewolf roams free!

Cemetery Tour

If you like real thrills as opposed to fake chills you’ll love the cemetery tour at 517 Paso Hondo San Antonio put on by the Sisters Grimm Ghost Tour. Here you can walk amidst authentic tombstones, escorted by a costumed docent. Learn about the history of some of San Antonio’s sons and daughters as you travel back in time.

Hangar Halloween Dog Costume Contest

For a little levity, enter your pretty pup into the coolest contest in town. Dress them up like ghosts and goblins and let the crowd vote for their favorite pooch. The top three dogs that receive the loudest cheers will win first, second and third place. Registration begins at 4:30 on October 30. The contest starts at 5:30.

The Rise of San Antonio’s Eastside


We think the Eastside, close to downtown, has had a bad rap throughout the years – some of it perhaps earned, but some has also been sensationalized by the media. In fact, the Eastside close to downtown is becoming one of the most interesting and blossoming neighborhoods in San Antonio. We’ll give you five good reasons why and suggest you don’t wait to check them out!

Dignowity Meats

San Antonio’s Eastside barbecue joint tops our list for the best reason to visit this up-and-coming part of town. Not only is the vibe of this outdoor eatery just fun and relaxing, but their KC-style barbecue is unbelievably delicious. We recommend the pork ribs – oh, my!


Cherry Street Bicyle Co-op

Friends and families can take advantage of this new downtown bike co-op where you can rent bikes for the day or purchase a monthly or annual membership to enjoy riding a variety of bikes throughout the city, including two-wheel bikes, tandem bikes, surreys and more. They even have a club house where you can grab a healthy, hand-made snack or host a party. Pretty soon, the mission trails will be easily accessible from Hemisphere Park so you ca hop on and ride miles and miles of trails without having to deal with any traffic.

Dignowity Hill Farmers Market

Sure, downtown can be somewhat of a food desert, which is why Dignowity Hill Farmers Market makes living or visiting downtown that much more enjoyable. You can shop here for fresh produce, hand-crafted edibles and more. They are located in Lockwood Park on 801 N. Olive at the basketball court. The market is held every 2nd and 4th Sunday from 9 am – 1 pm.

Hays Street Bridge

Hobbyist photographers will appreciate this beautiful walking bridge, located at 803 N. Cherry Street, that stretches over rows and rows of railroad tracks on the outskirts of downtown proper. With stunning views of the city, this bridge has becoming a popular spot to bring some refreshments and simply hang out. Expect the unexpected, such as drum circles and meditation groups to frequent this unique bridge.

Alamo Beer

Just below the Hay Street bridge is one of the neatest hang-outs in San Antonio. Alamo Beer is a brewery with an indoor and outdoor beer hall. This independent brewery features locally-made craft brews such as Alamo Golden Ale. On site, you’ll also find food trucks and often live music. We suggest grabbing a bike from the Cherry Street Co-op and riding over to Alamo Beer, where you can just kick back and be thankful you live in one of the most magnificent cities in the U.S.

If you’re looking to live in this wonderful town, call us at 210-494-5400 to set up a consultation for your new, custom-built luxury home – whether it’s on the Eastside or any side. If you wish to be added to our private email list for our newsletter, please sign up here.
