How to See San Antonio in One Day Without a Car

They call it the Grand Tour, and it truly is.  A full day of San Antonio attractions with out the bother of driving, parking fees or paying admission to the sights - makes this tour the best deal in town.

THE ALAMO
First, you'll be taken to the Alamo, the cradle of Texas liberty, established in 1718.  Full of history, these grounds are a memorial to the men who sacrificed their lives fighting for Texas independence. 

RIVERBOAT CRUISE
Cruise down the romantic San Antonio River and discover a world of sidewalk cafes, lush tropical foliage and charming boutiques.  Take note of the places you may want to return to on another day to explore further.

MISSION CONCEPCION
You'll stop for a visit at Mission Concepcion and view the original frescos still visible within the rooms of the mission.  This is the oldest unrestored stone church in the nation today.

MISSION SAN JOSE
Experience the finest example of a completely restored mission in the United States, renowned for exquisite stone carvings including the famous Rose Window.  If you enjoyed the two mission, there are two more: Mission Espada and Mission San Juan, that you can check out on another day, once the tour has familiarized you with the locations.

JAPANESE SUNKEN GARDENS
This beautiful and architecturally unique old stone quarry is  famous for its beautiful foliage.  Note the close by San Antonio Zoo and Brackenridge Park so that you can plan a later trip there.  The Park has free entry and is a great place to have a picnic lunch after a few hours at the zoo.

BUCKHORN SALOON & TEXAS RANGER MUSEUM
Next the tour will stop at the Buckhorn (admission included with tour) for a taste of the old west and wildlife exhibits from all over the world.  You can sip a cool drink from the 1881 classic saloon as you stroll through the 33,000 square feet of artifacts and oddities from Texas history.  The Ranger Museum admission is not included in the tour but discount tickets are available.

EL MERCADO
Visit the bakery at MiTierra and indulge in tasty pan dulce (Mexican Pastries.)  Tour the Marketplace filled with vendors with colorful Mexican imports.  Bargain for gifts from South of the border and enjoy the many Mexican food restaurants.
