Now the ninth largest city in the United States, the city has retained its sense of history and tradition, while carefully blending in cosmopolitan progress. The city has always been a crossroads and a meeting place. Sounds and flavors of Native Americans, Old Mexico, Germans, the Wild West, African-Americans and the Deep South mingle and merge.
We vote San Antonio as best downtown area that we’ve seen. The Riverwalk there is really beautiful. The Alamo was a bit of a let down – I guess I had the wrong expectations for it. I thought it would be bigger. It was still cool though.
