Should Not Miss
1. Take a guided tour of the Alamo and learn about the details
of the individuals who fought for Texas independence.
2. Take time to wander through the Alamo Gardens and reflect
of the tribulations of the men and women who took refuge behind these
walls during the battle.
3. Don't forget that the Alamo mission is not the only one located
within the confines of San Antonio. Visit the San Antonio
Mission National Historical Park, where four other missions tell the
story of the history of San Antonio, the Republic of Texas, and the
state of Texas. While less popular than the Alamo, nearly 1.1
million people visit these other sites per year.
4. Take a stroll down River Walk. Not far from the Alamo
historical site, River Walk has been a centerpiece of San Antonio
tourism since the days of HemisFair, the world's fair held in San
Antonio in 1968. It is a popular attraction with gondola
style boat rides, plenty of shops, and places to eat.
San Antonio is a large metropolitan city with a variety of
hotels and motels. Check out the website of the San Antonio
Convention and Visitors Bureau or other links on this site to check out
the variety and availability.
