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. While most visitors tour the city’s four Spanish colonial missions, including the Alamo, San Antonio is also home to an impressive collection of museums, theaters, historical monuments, and two world-famous amusement parks. Get a feel for the city by strolling down the iconic River Walk, shaded by towering cypress trees and lined with some of San Antonio’s finest restaurants, landmarks, and 18th-century architecture. Take a ride up the Tower of the Americas for sprawling 360-degree views of the city. Use our United States sightseeing planning site to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to San Antonio.
