Allo, Alamo - enjoy the Last Stand in San Antonio

San Antonio is a colorful mash-up of Old Spanish and Texan charm, and makes a great family-friendly vacation destination. Home of the iconic San Antonio River Walk, the buzzy dining and entertainment district, it's equally as popular with families who come to ride the rollercoasters at Six Flags Fiesta. However, the city is most famous as the home of The Alamo, the 18th-century Spanish mission and site of Texas' 1836 battle for independence from Mexico. So get your next South Texas adventure off to a great start with a centrally located San Antonio vacation rental.

Take me down to the Alamo City

Known as Alamo City, San Antonio is the beating heart of Old Texas. Wake up to a plate of huevos rancheros and wander through its historic districts, chancing at the many museums, galleries, and attractions on offer. Families are drawn to the city thanks to its abundance of theme parks and water parks. Go shopping in the trendy markets and pick up Mexican hand-woven crafts and jewelry. After dark, venture down to the Paseo del Rio, known as the River Walk, San Antonio's vibrant river district, for tacos and margaritas with the friendly locals.

San Antonio is a rollercoaster ride of a vacation

The old Spanish Mission and site of the famous battle in 1836, the bullet-scarred Alamo is the biggest draw to the city. Book a guided tour and learn about the state's bloodiest 13-day siege. Don't miss the peaceful courtyard gardens or the history wall. Another big draw to the city, especially with thrill-seeking kids in tow, is Six Flags Fiesta Texas, a massive amusement park with dozens of rollercoasters and thrill rides. After dark, venture down to the famous San Antonio River Walk, 3 miles of scenic pathways lined with buzzy restaurants and bars on the San Antonio River.

Summer in San An city and the air is still

Sun, sun, and more sun, San Antonio is a great vacation destination at anytime of the year. Ask any Texan! Summer is the busiest time, however it's also when blazing temperatures can rocket to over 100 degrees. It's also very humid, too. Another popular time to visit is the 10-day Fiesta in April, when the city becomes a party zone and San Antonio vacation rentals get booked up months in advance. Spring is generally the wettest season, and heavy storms and flash flooding are not uncommon.

A bird in the hand is worth 2 on the Texas Plains

San Antonio is a sprawling city in south central Texas Hill Country, 80 miles southwest of Austin. While there are plenty of city parks, for the best hiking trails head to the Friedrich Wilderness Park. Covering 600 acres of undeveloped Hill Country, it has 10 miles of well-kept hiking trails. It's popular with bird lovers and the nature set, who come to spot the rare golden-cheeked warbler and the black-capped vireo. It's also great for younger kids, who can conquer the shorter trails, like the Forest Range Trail through the park's rugged woodland. It's open every day from sunrise to sunset.
