As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.
On the 16th (Fri), find something for the whole family at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, then contemplate the long history of The Alamo, and then get a taste of the local shopping with The San Antonio River Walk. Here are some ideas for day two: laugh and play at SeaWorld San Antonio, then take in the history at Mission San Jose, and then take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral.
