The Home of the Alamo

San Antonio’s main thoroughfare isn’t a road—it’s the River Walk, a charming, pedestrian-friendly way to explore the city’s main attractions, including the San Antonio Museum of Art, Tex-Mex restaurants, the open-air Arneson River Theatre, and the 300-year-old Spanish mission known as the Alamo. The famous 1836 battle between Mexican troops and Texan settlers is remembered by thousands of visitors who tour the battlegrounds and peruse museum exhibits free of charge. If you’re looking to escape the bustle of the city, the nearby Texas Hill Country offers tubing on a river in New Braunfels or explore quaint Fredericksburg, known for its German heritage.
