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.
Start off your visit on the 5th (Thu): contemplate the long history of King William Historic District, steep yourself in history at The Guenther House Museum, take an in-depth tour of Briscoe Western Art Museum, then don't miss a visit to Main Plaza, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral. Here are some ideas for day two: learn about winemaking at Sister Creek Vineyards, pause for some serene contemplation at St Joseph Catholic Church, and then admire the architecture and history at Mission Espada.
