“If you like really old churches...”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

I am not a fan of old churches but I do like what they have done by connecting the missions with hiking and biking trails.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Such an amazing attraction in my city that few really know. Everyone comes to see the Alamo but miss the real missions that started San Antonio. There is the oldest working aqueduct in north America here.

“The true history of the Southwest”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

OK ... everyone who goes to San Antonio stops by at The Alamo thinking they have seen everything about the history of San Antonio. Well, if you haven't taken the time to follow the mission trail through the Misssions Historical Park area, you have only begun to scatch the surface. The Alamo is animportant place to visit, but it is really the least impressive of the historical mission sights. Bring your camera, as you will be showing these photos and explaing them to your friends for quite some time.
