San Antonio has it all - from romance to adventure, making it an ideal location for a vacation. You can partake in a variety of cultural activities from live music, river boat dining, Mexican rodeo and walking along the Paseo del Rio. Every year as well, San Antonio celebrates Fiesta, which is much more family friendly as compared to New Orleans' Mardi Gras.
Mexican culture has had a huge impact on San Antonio and nowhere is that more apparent than in Market Square, where you'll practically think you were in Mexico...or, you would if your conception of what is Mexico is confined to border towns such as Nuevo Laredo. German heritage is also apparent, which may surprise some travelers. Just outside of San Antonio lies New Braunfels, a German colony and now a charming town.
