San Antonio, Texas

A crossroads to southern Texas and Mexico, San Antonio is Tex-Mex at its best, mariachi songs spicing up balmy spring evenings and a scenic countryside peppered by oak, mesquite and cacti. Indulge in a hearty Mexican breakfast (huevos rancheros, anyone?), then take in a few of the city's serene old missions or a world-class art collection housed in a Spanish Colonial mansion.

Essentials

No visit to San Antonio is complete without a stroll along the River Walk (E. Commerce Street). Threading through downtown, the pedestrian stretch alongside the San Antonio River features cobblestone paths and garden-bedecked banks 20 feet below street level. GO RIO Cruises (315 E. Commerce St.) offers visitors an exciting addition to any trip with an overview of the canal-like waterway, though some are content to simply people watch, with a margarita in hand.
