Start your stay in San Antonio by seeing what you came here for: the Alamo. The Long Barracks contains a small museum with paintings, weapons and other artefacts and there is a diorama showing the mission as it was back in 1836. Catch the hop on-hop off trolley there and feel free to hop back on and continue around the rest of San Antonio’s major sites when you’re done with the Alamo.
One of the most special things about San Antonio is its River Walk. Also known as Paseo del Rio, it’s a network of walkways along the San Antonio River. The paths connect some of the city’s major tourist attractions including the Alamo, the Ameson River Theater, La Villita neighbourhood, and the San Antonio Museum of Art.
Of course, Texas is about more than just history, shopping, and arts and crafts. It’s also about cattle. And plenty of them. Head out of the city and see for yourself. Visit Stonewall, birthplace of LBJ, Lyndon Baines Johnson, 36th President of the United States.
