Beyond the River Walk and the Alamo, what do people know about San Antonio? Do they know about Ray’s Drive In? Do they know Elemendorf Lake? The Founding Mothers Mural? Do you?
Whether you’re an overnight visitor or a life-long resident, you want to know the soul of a city. You want to see its renowned landmarks and attractions, but you want to know the real community underneath. esd&associates has just helped San Antonio’s Office of Cultural Affairs open our unique city’s heart to the world.
San Antonio Neighborhood Tours has launched with easy-to-navigate guides of the food, arts, people, landmarks and shopping in the Eastside and Westside neighborhoods (the Broadway Corridor is coming soon). Visitors to the website can take a step-by-step “tour” of each neighborhood, or go directly to one of the categories for a directory of specific sites. esd also helped the Office of Cultural Affairs produce printable Acrobat files for each neighborhood tour.
The tours show some of San Antonio’s best attributes, from the funky to the sublime. We’ve lived here for decades – many of the people on the esd team are native San Antonians, yet the site opened our eyes to many corners of our hometown’s culture we never noticed.
