Davy Crockett may have fallen at the Alamo, but San Antonio clings to Texan pride shown by the King of the Wild Frontier and his compatriots in 1836. This modern city’s history shows itself throughout downtown. Besides the Alamo, you’ll find several other famous missions, all of which are now a part of the San Antonio Mission National Historical Park. But, you don’t need a desire for history to be charmed by this city.
Families will especially enjoy the Texas city’s theme parks, top-notch museums, and the famous River Walk. It’s also a culinary destination, with an extensive selection of its signature Tex-Mex style and an assortment of new barbecue places and diverse, upscale eateries. If you’re short on time, consider signing up for a tour to sample many of the city’s history, culture, and food.
