From San Antonio, it is only a couple of hours drive southward, to Corpus Christi, on the Gulf Coast, or to Laredo, on the Mexican border... Or you can head northward through the German community of New Braunfels, into the hill country, and on to the old German community of Fredricksburg. You can also visit Luckenbach, Texas, that tiny town made famous by country music stars Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings.

Has three different dance floors. One is disco, the 80's and hip hop. Right on the riverwalk! People even dress for the different floors. I don't believe there is a dress code. We wore jeans and nice t-shirts, people were more and less dressed than us.

The Institute of Texas Cultures and the International Festival.
The permanent museum has informative displays on the cultures that help to build Texas. the once a year festival, typically held in June, is a feast for the the eyes, ears and especially taste buds. Taste Turkish delight, Wendish noodles, Salvadorian Horchata while listing to an Irish folk singer. The festival is a great reason to visit San Antonio.
Excuse the silly picture
Mission Nuestra Señora de la Purisima Concepción
Mission Nuestra Señora de la Purisima Concepción de Acuña is the name of one of the smaller San Antonio Missions. Shortened to Mission Concepción for the purposes of signs and print ads, this mission is grouped into the National Park System, was dedicated in 1755, and is famous for being the oldest non-restored stone church in America. Originally, the outside of this church was painted with colorful geometric designs, however those have long since faded away. Inside the church, you will still be able to see frescos, or paintings on the walls of a building throughout.
This mission is out in the middle of San Antonio, without a lot of other attractions around it, so it is best if you choose to drive to this mission. The other missions are technically within walking distance, but I would choose to either drive, or at a minimum bicycle between these.
