Latinos in San Antonio Charms

Posted on September 27, 2010

It is one of the most interesting cities in Texas. Steeped in Mexican heritage, also attracts its varied cuisine and oddities Museum Ripleys "Believe It or Not."


It is the unofficial capital of southern Texas, the first major city across the border from Mexico and the third most populous city in the state. San Antonio, with its rich Spanish (and later Mexican) heritage is a growing 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 points for any traveler. The Alamo building, commemorating the battle of the same name, remember that from the XIX (1836) Century Texans fought to secede from Mexico when not even dreamed of joining the United States.


From Alamo in the historic city center, ideally walking nearby (San Fernando Cathedral and "Little Village" and "The Market") to encounter Riverwalk, an active commercial area that extends along the river San Antonio. Among the Alamo and St. Mary streets abound gastronomic offers, could be a good tacos at Aldaco's (100 Hoefgen Street), something "gourmet" as leg of lamb with herbs and chutney Boudro's ( included among the top 50 of all U.S. subtracted according to Esquire magazine) or the understated elegance of 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 records cited hunters to discover rarities of all kinds. In addition, there is also a Tussaud Wax Museum with 200 historical figures and showbiz.
But the third largest city in Texas does not end with this description; many youth theme parks and mega malls to visit.
