The Alamo City

As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.
Get out of town with these interesting San Antonio side-trips: Austin (South Congress Avenue, Texas State Capitol, &more) and Fredericksburg (Grape Creek Vineyards on Main, National Museum of the Pacific War, &more). There's much more to do: Head underground at Natural Bridge Caverns, contemplate the long history of The Alamo, admire the architecture and history at Mission San Jose, and shop like a local with The San Antonio River Walk.
