Built as the centerpiece of HemisFair '68, the Tower of the Americas is a San Antonio icon and every local must take the elevator ride up to the top at least once. Sure, you can take in the panoramic view from the Observation Deck, but why fall into a ticketed tourist trap 750 feet above the ground? Instead, take advantage of happy hour (4:30-7:30 p.m. Monday-Friday) in the bar area of the Tower's Chart House Restaurant. While the libations are fairly standard (draft imports, specialty martinis and mojitos among them), the view of the Alamo City is unbeatable — and the Chart House's rotating floor is likely to enhance your buzz. 739 E. César E. Chávez Blvd., (210) 223-3101, toweroftheamericas.com
