San Antonio is an incredible sight for sore eyes. It seems you can’t turn around without finding something that will have your jaw dropping and your hands scrambling for your camera. Add in Southern hospitality, and you know you’re in for a wonderful trip.
Take a memorable walk through the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, a wide-open green space where you’ll find the trademark towers and arches that the area’s missions are known for. Remember to take in the Alamo as well – San Antonio’s best known mission and the scene of one of the most storied battles in American history. Crane your neck at the San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral and marvel at its hallowed halls. For more incredible architecture, visit the Majestic Theatre, which boasts an impressive domed ceiling and lavishly decorated walls. The city is rich with opportunities to admire creative works, including the San Antonio Museum of Art and the McNay Art Museum, housed in a Mediterranean-style mansion worthy of a tour in its own right.
Nature lovers and adrenaline junkies alike will enjoy touring the jutting spires and curious formations below the earth’s surface at the Natural Bridge Caverns, where you can pan for precious stones, race across a zipline and feel your way through the dark on a caving adventure you won’t soon forget. Take in more of nature’s best at the Japanese Tea Gardens or stroll through the San Antonio Botanical Gardens.
Kids will love spending time at the city’s aquarium; Sea World and the Zoo are also guaranteed favorites. For more family fun, head to the Children’s Museum or stare wide-eyed at the oddities to be found at Louis Tussaud’s Wax Works. Shop for new fashions at El Mercado, dust off the golf clubs at a local green or dance the night away at a downtown nightclub – the choice is yours.
