We drove the Mission Trail to check out the four missions comprising the National Historic Park. It's always enjoyable to visit missions and to learn the history behind them. You can drive. There is plenty of parking available at each mission. Or, you can take the city bus to the missions from the Alamo.

Who doesn't love free? :) We opted to drive and park for all 5, all have free parking except the Alamo. Give yourself at least 1.5 hours to explore.

The park is a great place to learn about the history of the Church and how the four missions came to be. there were actually five missions because the Alamo was the first.

The Missions are a surprisingly close drive from downtown SA. Take the time to visit all of the missions. Each one is a little different. They are all in various stages of repair and use. Parking are readily available at each location. Make sure you walk around the grounds and not just pop into the buildings. Please remember these are... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the trail from the downtown to the San Antonio missions. Make sure you have enough sunscreen. The visitor's center was closed for renovation, but there was plenty of information available on site. Great picture opportunities

All of the Missions are beautiful but I'm partial to San Juan because it's a small church but kept very well, the Franciscans have a nice garden and bird feeders and it looks so welcoming you want to stay there for a good while. At Christmas time they put up a Menger that is truly beautiful!

This is free to go see. It's quite good size with a good visitors center that has nice displays and lots of information. The church was closed for a private baptism when we went. The architecture is very pretty on the cathedral. It was neat to see how they lived in the rooms that surround. Very pretty visit and easy... More
