​Holidays​ in San Antonio

'Remember the Alamo!' You certainly will if you opt for San Antonio holidays. The battle that spawned the famous rallying call was fought here in 1836. But the history and the fierce spirit of the fight for Texan independence linger on in this colourful city, which is today a beguiling mix of American West, Mexican and Spanish cultures. The historic buildings of that long-ago time are here still - but so are galleries, boutiques, museums, markets, and a whole lot else besides.

The River Walk is the beating heart of the city - a beautiful tree-lined walkway flanked by fine old buildings. It's at the very heart of the action, with lots of key attractions nearby and several en route. Shops, restaurants and stalls line the river on both sides, and there's no finer place to be than at an open-air eatery, tucking into Tex-Mex while mariachi music drifts on the breeze. You can cruise the river by boat, too.

San Antonio's five Missions (including The Alamo) are also close to its heart, and strolling amid their seventeenth-century structures and picturesque grounds on the Mission Trail evokes the spirit of long-gone Frontier days. San José,  Queen of the Missions, with its stunning church and centuries-old stone walls is especially unforgettable.

But the modern face of San Antonio is just as attractive, and there's fantastic shopping, while a visit to the trendy Southtown district reveals art galleries, new wave restaurants, food trucks, and  a buzzing bar and club scene. Plus there's museums, the famous zoo, and a clutch of theme and water parks to enjoy - while if you're a fan of NBA basketball, you'll want to catch the Spurs in action.

And there's the rest of Texas to explore of course, with Austin in striking distance. Just don't forget the Alamo!.

Shop Around

Whether it's souvenir cowboy boots or designer labels you want, you can find them on San Antonio holidays. The USA's largest Mexican market is a treasure trove of authentic goodies; the La Cantera mall has all the big names, including Nordstrom, Macy's and Neiman Marcus; and there's great outlet shopping at San Marcos.

Museums

Art lovers won't want to miss the McNay Museum of Art, with a fantastic setting in a Mediterranean-style mansion, or the San Antonio Museum of Art and its Latin American collection. The Witte Museum focuses on South Texas history culture and natural science, and has a four-story tree house with interactive exhibits that the kids will love.

The Alamo

Tour the 1724 site where Davy Crockett and almost 200 of his fellow men died fighting for Texan independence in 1836. They faced a Mexican army around 4,000 strong, and held out inside the Alamo mission for 13 days before they were all killed. At the RiverCenter Mall round the corner you can watch a fascinating IMAX film that fills in all the background.

Family Fun

At SeaWorld there's the chance to see all kinds of marine animals, and also to meet dolphins and beluga whales. There's roller coasters to ride too, while the Aquatica park next door has slides and pools galore. Six Flags Fiesta Texas will keep thrill seekers happy with its mighty coasters, while Morgan's Wonderland offers a gentler experience that's great for younger kids.

Fiesta Time!

April is the perfect month for San Antonia holidays since it's Fiesta time, when the city goes wild with 18 days of celebrations. There's countless parades both on the streets and on the river, plus live music and food stalls everywhere you turn. It's not to be missed.
