1. Tower of the Americas
739 E. César Chávez Blvd.
The Tower of the Americas, designed by San Antonio architect O'Neil Ford and built for the 1968 World's Fair, has long been a favorite local spot for panoramic, bird's-eye city gazing. And, over the years, its charm hasn't waned a bit. Sure, being the tallest structure in the city (excluding radio antennae) automatically gives you a bit of a leg up on the competition in the Best View in the City category, but it doesn't hurt that the circular shape of the Tower's top affords such rare luxuries as drinking and dining in a rotating restaurant and a 360-degree observation deck.
