You might have guessed it by now. Yes I am talking about San Antonio.
Let's start with Missions National Historical Park or simply called 'Missions of San Antonio'. This park comprises of 4 separate Missions - Concepción, San José, San Juan and Espada. Each of these structures is worth a visit just for the architecture, history and overall experience if nothing else.
The most famous of all missions is 'Alamo' and it is not part of the Missions Park. Originally called "Misión San Antonio de Valero" this structure is as awe-inspiring as it's history. Go early at sunrise and you might get that picture perfect shot of Alamo with no tourists.
You might have seen pictures of River Walk and maybe it's on your bucket list. I am sure that you won't be disappointed and you might even start believing you are in Europe.
Arched stone bridges on the river, boats offering cruises along the entire way and those colorful and iconic umbrellas lining the riverside tables.
My only tip is don't be in a hurry here. Relax and absorb in the sights and sounds and of course try out cuisine of your liking.
