The Tower of the Americas is the tallest building in San Antonio; it's a 750-foot observation tower-restaurant located in the Hemisfair district and was built as the theme structure of the 1968 World's Fair. It was the tallest observation tower in the United States from 1968 until 1996, when the Las Vegas Stratosphere Tower was completed.

The tower is located in the middle of HemisFair Park and has an observation deck that is accessible by elevator. There is also a lounge and revolving restaurant at the top of the tower that provides panoramic views of the city!
