There’s no better place to begin your San Antonio tour than with the legendary Alamo, one of San Antonio’s many Spanish Colonial missions. The historic site of the 13 day seige between a band of brave Texans and Mexico's intimidating General Santa Anna. Today, the Alamo is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the centerpiece of San Antonio's landmarks. Visit and explore history through the introductory film, exhibits, and then hop on a sight-seeing trolley on to the next attraction.
The River Walk
San Antonio’s pride and joy offers something new to experience around every corner. In one direction there’s Rivercenter Mall and the grotto providing a passage up into HemisFair Park. In another, you’ll find the Arneson River Theatre and historic La Villita with restaurants and shops offering custom jewelry, art, and other unique and amazing goods. All along this beautiful route are unique dining opportunities as well. Dine on delicious food and cultural attractions galore along the stunning San Antonio River.
Be charmed by a zoo and renovated Japanese Tea Gardens as your group enjoys a relaxing, warm Texas afternoon. You’ll also find the Witte Museum nearby for added touring enjoyment.
San Antonio Botanical Garden
The gardens give visitors a beautiful experience in the plant world while preserving the environment for future generations through education and research.
McNay Art Museum
This museum showcases modern and early art at the estate of Marion Koogler McNay, a San Antonio resident and noted art collector.
You may want to rent bicycles for today for your adventures beginning in this neighborhood of restaurants and galleries like Garcia Art Glass and El Sol Studios.
Take in as many of the Spanish Colonial missions as you can as you follow Mission Trail. Then consider returning via the trail that hugs the San Antonio River’s west bank.
St. Paul Square and Sunset Station Railroad Depot
You’ll love the beautiful vaulted ceiling and stained-glass windows of the restored 1902 depot in this historic square.
No San Antonio tour is complete without a visit here. Be sure to try the classic pan dulce at Mi Tierra and shopping at the Mexican market. Then take a peek at nearby Casa Navarro, the 19th century adobe home of Tejano patriot Jose Antonio Navarro. Without him, San Antonio might still be the “northernmost city in Mexico.”
