There are lots of places to see in san
Antonio but I would like to mention some of them which
are as following
Blue star arts
complex- This huge former warehouse changed its tune when it was renovated
and now houses a small but distinctive group of contemporary and
non-traditional art studios and galleries. Many of these display well-known
artists, but they also give recognition and opportunity to lesser-known local
artisans. Besides art galleries and studios, you will also find a brewpub, a
theater and living spaces. Blue Star tenants provide activities throughout the
year that are fun for families and adults. However, you don't have to do the
planned activities - just show up and browse.
Market square- The
historical center and heart of the city's Mexican culture, the square is the
largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico.
Here you can dine on Mexican food at one of several cafes, enjoy the lively
sounds of Mariachi bands, and buy the wonderful blankets, clothes, leather and
metal goods, and more imported from just south of the border. The square plays
host to many cultural events and fairs throughout the year, including Fiesta
del Mercado (Party of the Market) in April and
Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) in November. For lodging select only cheap hotels in the city. As they offer
great discount to the tourists at cheap prices.
the Mission San Antonio del Valero, the Alamo is by far
the most famous historical site in Texas,
playing a significant role in Texas'
quest for independence from Mexico.
Under the command of Col. WilliamTravis, 189 Texan soldiers bravely defended
this fort for 13 days before finally succumbing to Santa Anna's
massive Mexican army in early 1836. The chapel and the Long Barrack are all
that remain of the fort. Saved from civilian apathy by the Daughters of the Republic
of Texas, the mission is now a
museum containing relics from the era. Texans take the Alamo
very seriously. Silence, or at least a hushed tone of voice, is insisted upon
both in the chapel and on the grounds.
Eisenhower park- Located in northwest San
Antonio, EisenhowerPark is a great place to go to get
away from the noise and hurried pace of city life. The park spans 318 acres and
offers approximately five miles of well-marked trails for hikers of all
abilities. One of the trails is even paved, and is therefore friendly to those
in wheelchairs who still want to experience the great outdoors. Because this is
such a high volume park, and also due to the scorching South Texas summers, the
best time to see the wildlife here is either early in the morning or near dusk.
Visitors may spot white-tailed deer, armadillos, raccoons and skunks, as well
as many unique insects. Not the biggest or the best, EisenhowerPark is still a good place to visit
for the money. It is very busy at times, and the observation tower does offer a
grand view of the city when the conditions are right.
For staying I select a hotel which was among the hotels in san antonio.
This hotel was very cheap and it was offering very large amount of discount at
cheap prices. The hotel was very clean and very much decorated. There was a
pleasing environment all over. The name of the hotel was the westin san antonio.
This hotel offers very nice services to the visitors which pamper them. The
cheap price of the hotel attracts tourists from all over the world.
