The south-central city of San Antonio is packed with history and culture. Learn about the city’s colonial past at sites like the Alamo – an 18th-century Spanish mission that marks the site of the state’s battle for independence from Mexico. The San Antonio River flows through the city and the famed River Walk follows it – a pedestrian promenade lined with outdoor seating, cafes and quaint shops.
