Castroville is only 20 miles west of San Antonio on US 90, but it’s another world in terms of mood and atmosphere. This small town serves up a mixture of many cultures: French, German, English, Alsatian, and Spanish. It’s best known for its Alsatian roots and sometimes is called “The Little Alsace of Texas.” Word has it that the town of Concan is named for “coon can,” a Mexican gambling game. Today it’s a safe gamble for outdoor recreation from swimming to camping. This eTrail from the DayTrips series describes many fascinating, exciting, (and many free of charge) things to do, most within a two-hour drive of San Antonio. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping.
