Association of Environmental & Engineering Geologists
64th Annual Meeting
September 18–26, 2021
Once a frontier settlement in the Wild West, San Antonio’s unique culture stemming from its Spanish, German, and American roots offers an abundance of history, arts, and exciting cuisine. The city is famous for its scenic River Walk, which makes getting around downtown a breeze. Stretching more than 24 kilometers from start to finish, the River Walk’s shaded pathways connect hundreds of shops, restaurants, hotels, historic landmarks, museums, and attractions. Take the River Walk to the north and you’ll find museums—filled with everything from Picassos to Western memorabilia—and the Pearl—an exciting culinary and shopping destination. To the south, the River Walk leads to four Spanish missions that once provided shelter for frontier settlers and still provide some of the best bird watching spots around. Perhaps most notable of all San Antonio’s missions is the Alamo in the heart of downtown. The Westin Riverwalk, located on the Riverwalk’s quiet end, is a beautiful upscale hotel decorated to emphasize the historic Texas surroundings while providing a warm and subtle Spanish Colonial look and feel. Don’t miss this opportunity to be adventurous and inspired in this amazing city rich in history and culture!
