San Antonio

As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.
Visit Mission San Jose and Guenther House for their historical value. Get in touch with nature at The San Antonio River Walk and San Antonio Missions National Historical Park. Change things up with these side-trips from San Antonio: Barrel Barn at Garrison Brothers Distillery (in Hye), National Museum of the Pacific War (in Fredericksburg) and Becker Vineyards (in Stonewall). There's lots more to do: Head underground at Natural Bridge Caverns, pause for some serene contemplation at San Fernando Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of La Villita Historic Arts Village, and enjoy some music at Japanese Tea Gardens.
