It's no wonder San Antonio is the most-visited city in Texas. First of all, a river runs through it, creating scenic spots for couples to stroll, dine, and pause for a kiss. San Antonio is also a gateway to Latin America; here you can savor Mexican cuisine and shop for handmade imports at low prices. Appreciate culture? See the largest collection of Latin American folk art at one museum; visit a Smithsonian satellite at another. And for history lovers, there's the Mission Trail, including both the Alamo and hauntingly beautiful Mission Concepcion.
Explore the River Walk and its don't-miss highlights including Selena's Bridge, Marriage Island, and historic La Villita square. But don't restrict yourselves to that area. I'll point you to Market Square, where you'll want to shop; the Pearl Complex, San Antonio's foodie mecca; the historic King William neighborhood; and where to rub shoulders with local artists.
