If you’re like me you love a beautiful art mural. I love taking my kids and snapping a few captures for my Instagram feed. San Antonio is working hard to make the city beautiful with some many great places to capture street art. I love the city’s vibrant Spanish roots and how it reflects in the art as well. There are so many great Instagram Walls, but here are a few that will get your started in your journey.
Essex Modern City Murals: 51 Essex Street
Essex Modern City Murals is my favorite places to go. It is a street art paradise for Instagram Walls. You will find 20+ murals in one stop. Spend Second Saturdays at Essex for live art, music, and food trucks.
SA Street Art : N St Mary’s Street + Interstate 35 underpass
This is another one of my favorite places to go. It isn’t everyday you’ll find 16 murals all by local artists in one spot. This nonprofit works to bring art to the streets of the city. Pull into the log on N. St. Mary’s under the 1-35. Be sure to check back to their website. There is a 2nd phase coming soon.

San Antonio Fiesta Building: 2611 Broadway
Fiesta is a huge event here in San Antonio. This mural is outside of the San Antonio Fiesta Main Office. It is a great Los Otros mural which can be found in the parking lot.
The Rim Shopping Center: Located between The Rustic and Bowl & Barrel
The Rim partnered up with the San Antonio nonprofit San Antonio Cultural Arts to commission 3 wall murals. My favorite of these 3 are definitely the macaroons.
Greetings from San Antonio Mural: 2702 N St Mary’s St
You can’t visit a city without posing in front of their city’s wall. This is another fun mural off of St Mary’s Street.
Los Otros Mural for Riverwalk: Hampton Home 2
I saw this mural the other night while walking at the River Walk. This is the first street art mural on the Historic River Walk. This piece is titled Cattleman Alley. Many Cattle came through this area of the river before moving up the Chrisholm Trail to Abilene then heading to markets up north.
Colorful Mural by Muro: 1107 Navarro Street
This one is a large scale mural with many fun elements to it! It’s super fun and it is also located right by a few more murals. For a bonus, look up at the building and you will find a mural of pancakes! It’s really awesome, but unfortunately we couldn’t find access to it as it is on the rooftop.
I have only touched the surface of Instagramable Wall Art. Check out these few websites on more walls you can try out.
