The Alamo is a highlight for residents and visitors alike offering a unique look into Texas history with interactive tours, exhibits and reenactments. The complex, which is located on Alamo Plaza in downtown San Antonio, covers 4.2 acres and includes the breathtaking Alamo Gardens as well. Once you are finished there, head back to the San Antonio River Walk which covers 15 miles and includes local dining, shopping and entertainment to cap off a day of adventure. Walk the path at your own speed or jump on a river barge for a guided tour.
History buffs will also appreciate a stop at the San Antonio Missions, which lie along the River Walk. This National Historic Park pays tribute to the Spanish and Indigenous cultures that intertwined to develop San Antonio’s lasting personality. Make sure to stop by the Visitor Center at Mission San Jose and admire the new tricentennial mural by 2020 Artist-in-Residence Cruz Ortiz that celebrates its 300-year history.
Brackenridge Park is home to a number of San Antonio’s top attractions including the Japanese Tea Garden, San Antonio Zoo, San Antonio Botanical Garden and Witte Museum.

The Zoo is located just East of the Garden with 750 animal species on 56 acres of grounds. The Botanical Gardens offer another opportunity for outside exploration with areas for picnicking, the Muhly Maze, and No Name Creek. For more interactive play, try the Witte Museum, where children and adults can learn from innovative exhibitions, programs and collections that represent the area’s natural history and heritage.
