San Antonio radiates timeless personality. Visit the Alamo and wonder: Was that thewhisper of Davy Crockett? Emotions surface as you walk the grounds. It is said that Texas history officially began with the Battle of the Alamo. Yet the Alamo was over 100 years old when the momentous battle occurred. Walk along the River Walk and do a double take as you imagine a Spanish soldier next to a Cypress tree. Shopping in El Mercado, you feel a part of history even when surrounded by modern conveniences. Step out on to the observation deck at the Tower of the Americas and insist it was the wind whispering in your ear (or was it?). San Antonio combines unique history with contemporary influences. Southtown boasts an eclectic art community. Exhibits and events are a natural part of life in the downtown area. Yes, things are bigger in Texas. The San Antonio Zoo is America’s third largest zoo and Sea World San Antonio is the largest marine park in the world. In May 2012, Sea World announced Aquatica, a major water theme park. That’s correct. Right here in San Antonio you can experience more than 42,000 square feet of sandy beaches. If you are here for a quiet time or a family vacation, you are in the right place. Whether it’s a business trip or a meet up with old friends, you cannot go wrong. Remember, variety is the spice of life and when in San Antonio, variety is the rule.
