Though the Alamo always gets top billing, San Antonio is home to more than just the one historic mission. Missions Conception, San Jose, San Juan, and Espada make up the San Antonio Missions National Park located along the San Antonio River.
As the longest linear urban park in America, San Antonio's River Walk abounds with recreational features -- these include over 15 miles of hike and bike trails, 6 foot bridges, picnic tables, overlooks and river-edge landings.
The Pearl Brewery is one of the coolest places you can visit in San Antonio. The Pearl is situated next to the recent Riverwalk expansion, so you can catch a tour boat or walk from the Pearl all the way downtown.
