My only bad experience visiting was my Embassy Suite River Walk Hotel stay in downtown San Antonio TX. The local people and personell on the AFB were awesome.

“If you are interested in military aircraft...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

Lackland Air Force Base, located on the west side of town, is where recruits into the Air Force receive basic training. It is also a treasure trove of military aircraft up on pedestals. One can get up close and
personal with an old friend, or just drive around and view these relics of past airpower.

“Gateway to the Air Force!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

If you decide to go to Lackland Air Force Base try to make it on a Friday when they have the graduation ceremony for the new recruits. They have a full fledged parade with a military band. It is a beautiful thing to witness. People come from all over the US to watch their sons and daughters become Airmen.
