Introducing San Antonio
San Antonio’s quaint plazas, ebullient markets, and evocative missions reveal the city’s fabled Western history. Texan ranchers and Mexican settlers may have clashed in bloody fashion at the Spanish mission, The Alamo, the city’s premier attraction, yet the city’s Tex-Mex cultural crosscurrents have cultivated a robust roster of attractions. Not without its share of tourist tack, the River Walk—a four mile stretch of canal that winds through downtown—is flanked by restaurants, cafés, and bars. La Villita historic district, just off the River Walk, tentatively clings to its status as the ‘little village’ with charming mid-19th-century buildings housing eclectic artisanal shops. While San Antonio’s lack luster downtown belies its status as the seventh largest city in the nation, the city’s cultural repertoire extends to the San Antonio Museum of Art, Market Square (the largest Mexican-style market outside of Mexico), Brackenridge Park, a 340-plus-acre green space which features a sunken Japanese Tea Garden, and San Antonio Zoo.
