San Antonio boasts a rich cultural history, making it a favorite for family travelers looking to explore the fascinating history of Texas. From mainstay attractions like the Alamo to the serene Riverwalk, one thing that stands out is the colorful beauty that brightens the city at every turn.

 

San Antonio is a city beloved by artists and art connoisseurs, with incredible museums and art galleries to explore. You may not know that the city is also a hotbed of street art with murals around the city depicting its rich cultural heritage. Sure, you could spend your time going from museum to museum, but the city offers more unique and exciting ways to explore the city’s art scene. Get the family outdoors in the fresh air to discover San Antonio’s unique personality with a Mural Ride. These bike ride tours aren’t just a great way to get up close and personal with some of the city’s most impressive murals, but the tour is also a great way to explore the city itself.

 

The tour includes cruiser bikes and helmets, so all you have to do is show up and enjoy the ride. Local cyclists who know their city inside and out give you an insider’s look at the city’s vibrant street art scene. The five- to eight-mile ride encircles the downtown area, where you will also get to take in the city’s beautiful scenery and architecture. The guides gives you the history of the murals and their artists along with insider tips on the city itself.

 

Tours are available on Wednesday, Thursday and the weekends, starting at $45 per person. Each tour lasts between 1.5–two hours, and you can expect to see more than 20 murals created by some of the city’s most talented artists. The route takes you safely along city streets, avoiding any up-hill segments to make the tour ideal for all skill levels. If you have your own bike, you are still welcome to join the tour at a lower rate.
