Downtown San Antonio is celebrating the first anniversary of the Tobin Center’s Opening. It’s been quite a year in the “Decade of Downtown,” one that included the completion of The Pearl’s expansion, the Missions being named a World Heritage site and the continued growth of a burgeoning dining and entertainment district in Southtown. The arts and cultural scene has exploded with an impressive list of world-class performances gracing the stages of the Majestic Theatre and Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. For residents of Alteza above the Grand Hyatt, entertainment options within walking distance will continue to multiply with the grand opening of Hemisfair later this fall.
