San Antonio — 3 nights

As the state’s second largest city, San Antonio embodies Texas’ rich cultural heritage while maintaining the Old West charm of an oil town.
Change things up with these side-trips from San Antonio: Austin (Texas State Capitol, Congress Avenue Bridge Bat Watching, &more). Pack the 28th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at SeaWorld. There's still lots to do: take in the pleasant sights at The San Antonio River Walk, find something for the whole family at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, take in the architecture and atmosphere at San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral, and steep yourself in history at The Alamo.

To find more things to do, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, read San Antonio sightseeing planner.
