Consider these high points as you plan your trip, ranging from the city's major theme parks to the River Walk lined with restaurants, patios, galleries and shops.

The Alamo: The 300-year-old Mission San Antonio de Valero was the site of a pinnacle battle during the Texas Revolution in March of 1836. Here, 189 Texas defenders held off Mexican General Santa Anna's 4,000 soldiers for thirteen days.

River Walk: River Walk The San Antonio River is the heart of the country's oldest and most extensive Spanish-colonial water system, having supplied water for the construction of San Antonio's five historic missions. Today, the river still winds its way through the city, defining neighborhoods and offering a landscape of beauty and tranquility to behold from its shady banks. In the city center, the River Walk, or Paseo del Rio, is made up of cobbled walkways, bridges, cafes, shops, restaurants and bars along the river's edge. Its three miles of pathways are a full level below city streets, creating the ambiance of a secluded oasis.

The city is filled with culturally significant arts, history, culture, museums and architecture.
