    Getting between the Missions

    To tour the missions, a car will work best. If you go from the Alamo in downtown San Antonio to Mission Espada just outside of I-410, this will span for several miles. Each mission is a few miles apart from one another and there is a well marked driving route. Despite the brown signs that guide visitors between the various stops, I do recommend at least having some type of basic map with you. There are several turns you will be taking in both urban and more rural areas. Most people start at the Alamo and go south. Parking around the Alamo will be the most difficult since you only have a few parking meter spaces and paid parking lots in the area. For all other missions, there is ample parking at no charge.

    For those who enjoy bicycle touring, this would make an excellent tour in good weather.

    Getting there and around

    The best way to get to the Missions is by car. Just start at the Alamo and follow the signs. If you don't have a car, then inquire at your hotel about taking a tour of the MIssions.

    For official details on how to get there and away, check out the map of the region showing the location of the four Missions in their official sight:
