Travel

San Antonio may be located deep in the heart of Texas, but it is accessible by plane, train and automobile.

San Antonio International Airport (SAT) is served by 10 airlines and features more than 30 nonstop flights. It provides easy access to downtown, which is about 8 miles, or 15 minutes, away. Rental cars and other ground transportation options are available.

Amtrak provides service to its downtown area station, a short cab ride away from the conference hotel. Routes to the city include the Texas Eagle and the Sunset Limited.

Interstates 10 and 35 service San Antonio. Check the driving distance using the map below.

San Antonio

Few destinations provide a sense of place like San Antonio. Here, Mexican, European and Western cultures have blended into a unique personality.

Much of the city’s unforgettable landscape has grown along the banks of the River Walk where stone paths connect hotels, restaurants and shops in the downtown core. The 15-mile River Walk also links Spanish Colonial Missions (a World Heritage Site, along with the Alamo), museums and the Pearl, a former brewery reborn.

Plus, with a culinary explosion, top-notch golf courses and world-class theme parks, San Antonio is a destination unlike any other.
