Get to Know the Alamo City
On your travels through the Lone Star State you’ll find a wide range of exciting and interesting cities. From Austin to Dallas, and Amarillo to Fort Worth, there’s plenty to see and do. But one of the most enriching cities you’ll want to visit, taking nothing away from the aforementioned cities, is San Antonio.
Set in the southern Plains of Texas, San Antonio is known as the Alamo City. In 1845 San Antonio was officially annexed into the union by the United States, and since has created a rich, and vibrant history. San Antonio blends its heritage with a new, and fun sense of modernity.
Any trip to San Antonio seemingly must require a visit to the Alamo. The Alamo, a historic landmark for the state of Texas, was built in 1724 and housed missionaries for nearly 70 years. Visit from nearby cities like New Brunfels, or Lytle.
San Antonio features exciting sports teams that yield a fun and kid-friendly evening or afternoon. Check out the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center as they compete against the rest of the NBA. WBNA fans can visit the AT&T Center and watch the San Antonio Silver Stars compete for relevancy. Baseball fans won’t want to miss the San Antonio Missions, the Double-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres. During the spring and summer, catch a ball game at Nelson W. Wolff Municipal Stadium.
The spring and fall in San Antonio yield excellent weather, perfect for exploring outside. Although San Antonio features an array of interesting and fun museums and artifacts, be sure to check out the San Antonio River Walk, a five-mile reach of restaurants, shops, and attractions.
