Experience the sights, sounds and flavors at the crossroads of Southern Texas and Mexico in San Antonio.
Things to Do
The River Walk is unquestionably the city’s most recognizable attraction. The 15-mile stretch of the San Antonio River flows through the heart of the city, flanked by tranquil parks, lively cafés and shops. Take a boat tour with GO RIO Cruises for an overview of the waterway and enjoy the people watching.
Shop for artisan crafts or stop for a bite at La Villita or Market Square, billed as one of the largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico.
Remember the Alamo
Visit the site of the historic 1836 Battle of the Alamo where Texas won independence from Mexico and became a self-governing republic.
Before it was a fort, the Alamo was the first of five missions along the San Antonio River established by the Spanish in the early 1700’s to educate Native Americans converted to Christianity. Follow the signs to each of the missions on a scenic drive, walk or bike ride through San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
Don’t miss some of the best tacos, enchiladas and guacamole this side of the Río Grande in downtown San Antonio. Some restaurants are open 24 hours – just in case partying along the River Walk leads to a late-night tamale craving.
San Antonio is also home to renowned museums, golf courses and gardens. If you have kids, don’t miss the San Antonio Zoo, SeaWold San Antonio or Six Flags Fiesta Texas.
