Discover the Charms of San Antonio: 3 Attractions to See After Safety 2023

You won’t have a hard time finding something to do after Safety 2023 in San Antonio, Texas.

Almost ready for the American Society of Safety Professionals’ (ASSP) Safety 2023 Conference and Expo (Safety 2023)? Taking place this year in beautiful Texas, Safety 2023 will bring professionals from all over to San Antonio from June 5 to 7.

While the event itself has so much to offer, you may be wondering how to spend your evenings in the seventh-largest city in the U.S. With dozens of options, San Antonio has something for everyone.

River Walk and Cruises

Want to take in the sights of San Antonio? Head down to the River Walk, a 15-mile path that takes you past shops, restaurants, bars and more (pictured above). If you aren’t up for walking, take a narrated cruise to learn all about the city and see what it has to offer. The River Walk can be easily accessed from the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

Historic Market Square

A one-mile walk from the convention center, the Historic Market Square is another great option for food and shopping. It contains over 100 locally-owned businesses that sell “a wide variety of products celebrating the cultural, artistic and ethnic influences of the Southwest and Mexico,” per Historic Market Square’s website.

Tower of the Americas

Get an aerial view of San Antonio and learn about the city's history by visiting the Tower of the Americas. For just $16.50 ($13 for seniors and military), take a trip to the top of the 750-foot-tall building and Texas’ tallest observation tower, per its website. Tower of the Americas also boasts a restaurant and a bar with a stunning view.

Safety 2023 is taking place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, from June 5 to 7. The expo floor will be open on June 5 from 11:45 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; June 6 from 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.; and June 7 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Sessions will be offered on June 5 from 8 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.; June 6 from 8 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.; and June 7 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
