Best of San Antonio Guide

Print this guide 
San Antonio
Step to the beat of wafting flamenco music as you wander the downtown River Walk before sampling as much chili (San Antonio’s signature dish) as your taste buds will allow. A visit to the Alamo is an absolute must, as is taking in a show at the ornate Majestic Theatre. Missions Historical Park is dotted with 18th-century buildings and features, making for an enriching excursion.
