Day trip to San Antonio Itinerary

If you have time while in Austin, you should plan a day trip to San Antonio. San Antonio, officially the city of San Antonio, is the seventh most populous city in the US and the second most populous city in the state of Texas. So here's the few places I covered for my day trip there:

Riverwalk San Antonio

Riverwalk San Antonio is a charming stretch of walking paths lined with shops, bars and restaurants that wind along the banks of the San Antonio River. Also known as Paseo del Río, the Riverwalk passes one story below downtown San Antonio, Texas and offers a splendid walking tour that includes the San Antonio Museum of Art, Rivercenter mall, HemisFair Park and much more. For a directory of fun things to do and attractions to see on San Antonio's Riverwalk, go to

The Alamo

The Alamo is the last vestige of the famed Battle of the Alamo, a 13-day siege which took place from February 23 - March 6, 1836. Although defeated by the Mexican Army, the Texas Revolutionaries or "Texians" who fought the battle inspired many others to join their cause. Eventually, the Alamo led to the end of the Texas revolution when the Texians won the Battle of San Jacinto, on April 21, 1836, which decisively drove the Mexican Army out of Texas. To learn more about visiting the Alamo and its history, go to
