Spanish Colonial North America!

We did all 5 missions (the park and the Alamo) and the Aquaduct. It does look like a wonderful place to spend the day on a bike.

If you love history and love historical buildings you must visit the Missions in San Antonio. The buildings are beautiful and it's just amazing to see the buildings from so long ago. Great experience.

If you love history and culture, then see the 5 missions. Now a UNESCO nomination. Each one has a little different story.

Beautiful setting and plenty of room for the adults to take in the history and serenity of the respective missions, while giving plenty of space for the kids to romp and explore. Saw families roaming grounds, young couple on picnic dates, international tourists, you name it....but never felt crowded. The mariachi orchestra practicing in chapel was a bonus! We toured... More

We enjoyed doing this tour in our vehicle, especially interesting seeing this for the first time after many visits. Next time we go, the plan is to use SA's bike share system and do the route on bicycle.

We went there with the Hop-on/Hof-off bus and did the tour in the hour between the bus schedules (1 hour). Beside visiting the well kept buildings they also have a video room which shows a half hour video with a good historic overview. Recommend seeing this video when there.

I have walked this area and taken the water taxi tour over the years. In times of high water or heavy rainfall - the water taxi is not always available to enter the upper locks. One will feel like you are in Old Mexico - the beautiful churches, chapels, grounds. Peaceful yet interesting.

San Jose Mission is the central location of the National Historical Park. It is a blessing from 1720 and the church is still used. There is a visitors center, but also a small gift shop operated by the church. All our travel in San Antonio I turned off the "highway" feature of the Garmin. It was the BEST idea ever.... More
