San Antonio, home of the Alamo, captures the spirit of Texas. Now
the eighth largest city in the United States, the city has
retained its sense of history and tradition, while carefully
blending in cosmopolitan progress.
Amidst the daily hubbub of
the busy metropolitan downtown, sequestered 20 feet below street
level, lies one of San Antonio's jewels - the Paseo del Rio.
Better known as the "River Walk," these cobblestone and
flagstone paths border both sides of the San Antonio River as it
winds its way through the middle of the business district with
outdoor cafes and restaurants, taverns and shops.
Rivers in the Texas Hill
Country, which form an arc around the northern edge of San
Antonio, provide venues for canoeing, tubing and white-water
rafting. Area lakes attract fishermen, as well as water skiing and
Area attractions include
Sea World, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, King William Historic Area, La
Villita, Market Square - El Mercado, Mission Concepcion, Spanish
Governor's Palace, Brackenridge Park, Plaza Theatre of Wax,
Majestic Theatre, Buckhorn Saloon & Museum, and of course the
Bed and Breakfast Inns
