San Antonio is a tapestry of Mexican and American history. From exciting events to restaurants and attractions, San Antonio offers a unique diversity. But the city is also known for its beauty, with excellent examples of Southwestern architecture and a plush landscape rarely seen in such an arid environment, due in part to the San Antonio River that runs through the downtown area. Whether you simply want to remember the Alamo, stroll down the famous River Walk in Downtown San Antonio or sample the Tex-Mex cuisine, you'll find this Texas vacation spot has a charm that is distinct from any other American city.
