At a Glance

San Antonio today is a vibrant meeting of centuries of crossed paths — Native Americans, Colonial Spain, Germans, Old Mexico, the Canary Islands, the Wild West, the Deep South — and its big, gracious heart pays homage to them all. At the Alamo, hear of Travis’ last stand, barge the scenic River Walk’s urban twists and turns and put an unexpectedly revealing eye on San Antonio’s past.
