Take the mission trail.

I recommend doing the mission trail. You can rent a bike and ride the trail or you can drive. Either way these old missions are beautiful.

No one in the family wanted to brave the heat to visit these beautiful missions so I went solo. Each one was beautiful and unique. I went during a Sunday and when I saw they were having services I was initially disappointed. But they have an usher by the door and welcomed me in to sit and enjoy the singing... More

The missions was very interesting. Lots of history here. One of the churches is still used and someone lives there.

Went to the Mission San Juan. It was a very hot day. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and considerate- she always spoke with everyone in the shade. Place was rich with history. So cool we visited the other Missions, we had not planned on going to.

We went to all of the missions for a school project. They all have something to offer and give you a taste of life in the missions.

We had our family reunion in San Antonio this year and part of that we do bus tours to see the town. This was one of our stops.

Love to see the missions. Most are accessible by a bicycle ride, be it a bit lengthy ride. Fun and scenic way to go. Beautiful architecture from the period and informative plaques describe the buildings and grounds. Some still hold Catholic services every week and they are now World Heritage sites.
