It will not be possible for Muslims visiting the Tower of the Americas to find prayer facilities. They can either locate a clean and quiet area in the surrounding Hemisphere Plaza, or visit one of the several mosques in the city. Masjid Al-Madina, Masjid Al-Ikhlas and the Islamic Center of San Antonio are just a few options.
For those looking for a fine dining experience, Chart House is the ideal restaurant. However, visitors seeking something less formal could visit the Tower Café which is located on the Observation Deck. While Muslim visitors will not be able to find Halal certified food at any of the dining establishments found at the attraction, they will be able to find suitable vegetarian and seafood options.
