The Alamo City: San Antonio Professional Review and Guide
"As Texas’s second-largest city, San Antonio has the reputation of a fun-loving town. Located south of Austin, the city always has something going on to attract visitors. No matter when you choose to visit, you can bet that somebody, somewhere, is hosting a festival. Perhaps it has something to do with the sunshine or the fresh air. Whatever it is, you can feel it. It sizzles up like fajitas out of the city’s Latino heritage, which abounds with colorful traditions and vivid memories. San Antonio is also a foodie’s paradise.
This is the city that heralded the birth of fajitas—strips of marinated charcoal-grilled skirt steak. Here you’ll also find to-die-for guacamole, pico de gallo (a Mexican condiment of onions, tomatoes, and chiles), and fresh flour tortillas. With two excellent theme parks, a world-class zoo, and wonderful museums, San Antonio offers much more to see and do than this eTrail can possibly list. 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 Austin. Each Day Trip includes destination highlights, places to visit along the way, choice restaurants and lodging, and shopping."
