As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Thu): appreciate the extensive heritage of La Villita Historic Arts Village, admire the architecture and history at Mission San Juan Capistrano, then steep yourself in history at Mission San Jose, and finally take an in-depth tour of The Alamo. Here are some ideas for day two: pause for some serene contemplation at St Joseph's Downtown Church, contemplate the waterfront views at San Antonio River, and then appreciate the extensive heritage of King William Historic District.

Plan my day in San Antonio using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Houston

Houston
Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fanthorp Inn State Historic Site and Sam Houston Park. Get out of town with these interesting Houston side-trips: Monument Hill State Park (in La Grange), Sylvan Beach Park (in La Porte) and George Ranch Historical Park (in Richmond). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge, play a few rounds at Hermann Park, admire all the interesting features of Minute Maid Park, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Plan my day in Houston using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Traveling by car from San Antonio to Houston takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or fly. In December, plan for daily highs up to 22°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
