Fun Things To Do In San Antonio
River Walk: The conference takes place at the Embassy Suites San Antonio located on the River Walk. Come enjoy all of the attractions that the River Walk has to offer. The San Antonio River Walk is a public park open 365 days a year, lined with individual businesses composed of restaurants, bars, hotels, shops, and more.
The Alamo: More than 2.5 million people a year visit the 4.2 acre complex known worldwide as “The Alamo.” For over 300 years, the Alamo has been a crossroads for Texas history. Here the Spanish colonization first took hold, Mexico armed its independence and even the Confederacy stood its ground. Yet most come to see the place where a small band of Texans held out for thirteen days against General Antonio López de Santa Anna. Located on Alamo Plaza in downtown San Antonio, Texas, the Alamo houses exhibits on the Texas Revolution and Texas History. Visitors are welcome to stroll through the beautiful Alamo Gardens. Just a short distance from the River Walk, the Alamo is a “must see” for all who come to San Antonio.
Mission San Jose: Known as the “Queen of the Missions”, this is the largest of the missions and was almost fully restored to its original design in the 1930s by the WPA (Works Projects Administration). Spanish missions were not churches, but communities, with the church the focus. Mission San José shows the visitor how all the missions might have looked over 250 years ago. Mission San Jose is an active parish. Visitors are welcome to attend mass on Sundays.
San Fernando De Bexar Cathedral: San Fernando Cathedral was founded in 1731 and is the oldest, continuously functioning religious community in the State of Texas. The Cathedral building has the added distinction of being the oldest standing church building in Texas, and for all of its more than 281 years, has been serving the people of the Archdiocese and San Antonio. For almost 95 years, San Fernando served as the church for all of the religious denominations of San Antonio as the Catholic Church was the only recognized religion of the Spanish and Mexican governments prior to Texas’ independence. San Fernando has become more than the geographic center; it has become an ecumenical, cultural, civic, and service center of San Antonio.
