It is one of the most interesting cities in Texas. Impregnated with Mexican heritage, also attracts its varied cuisine and Ripleys Museum oddities "Believe It or Not".
It is the unofficial capital of southern Texas, the first major city from the border with Mexico and the third most populous city in the state. San Antonio, with its rich Spanish heritage (and later Mexican) is an increasingly important destination not only among Americans, but also among foreigners.
Located about 300 miles south of Houston, San Antonio retains its downtown one of the unavoidable for any traveler. The building Alamo, commemorating the battle of the same name, remember that since the nineteenth century (1836) struggled Texans separated from Mexico when he dreamed yet to join the United States.
From Alamo in the historic center of the city, an ideal touring nearby (San Fernando Cathedral and "Little Village" and "The Market") until he ran into Riverwalk, an active commercial area that extends along the banks of the river San Antonio. Among the Alamo and St. Mary streets, abundant culinary offerings, could be good Mexican tacos Aldaco's (100 Hoefgen Street), something "gourmet" as leg of lamb with herbs and chutney Boudro's ( included among the top 50 U.S. subtracted from all according to Esquire magazine) or the understated elegance of the Lion & Rose British Pub, with four branches throughout the city.
Although you may not believe
Beyond the culinary history and the most distinctive surprise San Antonio is the Ripley's Museum, the largest of its kind in the country. In its spacious three story, curious and hunters cited records to discover rarities of all kinds. In addition, there are also Tussaud Wax Museum with 200 historical figures and showbiz.
But the third largest city in Texas is not limited to this description, there are many youth theme parks and mega malls to visit.
