Appreciate history at the San Antonio Missions
Multiple locations, (210) 534-8875, nps.gov
While lots of folks fuss about the Alamo (for good reason, but really?), there are four other historical missions that are just as badass and packed with history. Though it’s worth noting that the structures were built with the intent to colonize the area and spread Christianity, visiting these sites allows visitors to travel back in time to see how some of SA’s earliest residents lived. Mission San José is perhaps best known, as it’s accompanied by undisturbed land, but there’s also Mission Concepción, Mission San Juan and Mission Espada, all located on the South Side.
