Explore San Antonio's rich history on a full-day tour of the city's best sights. Visit the Alamo, the Buckhorn Saloon, and the Texas Ranger Museum, tour the Mission Concepcion and the Japanese Sunken Gardens, and stop at the El Mercado market square.
Take an escorted tour of the Alamo, originally founded in the 18th century as a Spanish mission. This is the site where David Crockett, William Barrett Travis, James Bowie, and others fought Mexican General Santa Anna during the Texas Revolution in 1836.
From the Alamo, learn more about the Old West with a visit to Buckhorn Saloon, founded in 1881. Stroll through 33,000 square feet (3,065 sq m) of Texas history and artifacts. Then explore the Texas Ranger Museum to uncover the colorful stories and see original artifacts of the famous law enforcement agency.
Take a walk through the Japanese Sunken Gardens, an architecturally unique garden and grounds. You are certain to take a break as you walk the winding pebble trails, cross stone bridges, and listen to the tranquil waterfall.
Your visit to Mission Concepcion transports you back in time to the era of Spanish conquest. Learn how the Spanish developed the mission system within the San Antonio area. Recorded as the oldest unrestored church in America, it is filled with stunning, original frescoes that are still something to behold.
Your final stop of the day is at the El Mercado, a great place to browse for jewelry and art with a local flair or simply people-watch.
