    One of the most famous landmarks in North America, The Alamo, is located in the heart of downtown San Antonio. This UNESCO World Heritage site, is steeped in history of the bloody battles between Texas and Mexico and the famous last stand of the Texan army against a marauding Mexican army. No trip to Texas is complete without a tour of the Alamo and its history. The resting place of Davy Crockett, William Travis and James Bowie is also located in San Antonio at the San Fernando Cathedral, a short stroll from the Alamo.

    The San Antonio River Walk is a verdant oasis of cypress-lined paved paths, arched stone bridges and lush landscapes. It gently winds through the city center, providing easy access to the city’s cultural hot spots and historic sites as well as shops, restaurants and other attractions. The Riverwalk comes alive at night with many restaurants and bars having seating along the riverside offering you the opportunity to take in the atmosphere.

    Enjoy the sights and flavors of old Mexico at Historic Market Square. Explore over 100 locally owned shops and stalls, all at a festive indoor mall famously described as the largest Mexican market outside Mexico.

    La Villita Historic Arts Village along the banks of the San Antonio River offers a combination of art galleries, distinctive shops and fine dining experiences in a historically significant setting.

    For those seeking a little more adventure, San Antonio is home to Six Flags Fiesta Texas theme park and also a SeaWorld and Aquatica water park. 

    Just a short drive out of San Antonio is the beautiful Texas Hill Country. Rolling green hills, stunning blue lakes and bluebonnets are staples of the incredible landscape. Visit one of the many towns in the Hill Country area and learn about the German heritage of this area, or perhaps visit a winery in one of the upcoming wine regions of the USA.
