    Sights on The Grand Tour of San Antonio

    The Alamo - The most famous spot in Texas, where David Crockett, Colonel William Barrett Travis, Jim Bowie and 186 others died fighting for independence on March 6, 1836, after repeated attacks from Mexican General Santa Anna. Originally established in 1718 as the city's first mission, The Alamo is located in the heart of San Antonio, inside beautifully landscaped grounds. Step inside The Alamo and see where brave defenders fought and died. Walk through the Long Barracks Museum, home to exhibits that tell the story of Texas, its settlement, revolution, and later efforts to save the Alamo from disuse and disrepair. Visit the Gift Museum to see more Alamo artifacts and to purchase souvenirs.

    Buckhorn Saloon & Museum - For over 129 years, The Buckhorn Saloon has always been known as a gathering place for good conversation, great food and spectacular wildlife exhibits. Today, the saloon houses a Café, Gift Shop, Shooting Gallery and two museums. The Buckhorn Museum features wildlife from all over the world; including fish, birds, animal oddities and a wax museum of Texas History. The exhibit halls are comprised of over 520 species of wildlife, many of which are listed in the 'Boone and Crockett' record books. The Buckhorn is home to a world record whitetail deer, the famous '78 Point Buck'. Other amazing specimens include a record black marlin and a 10,000 year old pre-historic Irish elk skull and antlers.

    Riverboat Ride - Take a relaxing cruise down the beautiful Paseo Del Rio, shaded by towering cypresses, oaks and willows and bordered by gardens of flowering ornamental foliage. One level below the hustle and bustle of the city streets, the riverboats take you on a three-mile tour of lush green foliage, unique retail shops and restaurants.

    Market Square /El Mercado - A visit to historic Market Square is a unique and exciting experience. From the famous 24-hour restaurant and bakery, Mi Tierra, to an outstanding art gallery and century-old pharmacy, this is a great place to shop for extraordinary gifts and souvenirs or to just relax and enjoy a little "people watching." Visitors can browse the 32 shops at "El Mercado," an area patterned after an authentic Mexican market, as well as the 80 specialty shops in Farmers' Market Plaza.

    Mission San Jose - Founded in 1720, it became the largest and best known of the Texas missions, with up to 300 inhabitants at one time. The mission is now fully restored and boasts several unique features, including exquisite carvings on the church and the famous "Rose Window," considered to be one of the finest pieces of Spanish Colonial ornamentation in the country.

    Japanese Sunken Gardens - This beautiful and unique old stone quarry features winding pebble walkways, stone bridges, a waterfall and tranquil pools among lush gardens. Also enjoy a drive through beautiful Brackenridge Park and by the world-renowned San Antonio Zoo.

    Mission Concepcion - Visit Mission Concepcion and be transported back in time to the era of Spanish conquest, and experience the strength of the Friars who Christianized the Native Americans. Learn how the Spanish developed the mission system within the San Antonio area and Texas and how they and Native Americans lived and worked in the mission era. View the original frescoes still visible within the rooms of the mission. Mission Concepción is the oldest unrestored stone church in America today, and it is still an active parish, as are all of the missions, except the Alamo.
