Over 20 million tourists visit this electric city every year! Let the Adventure Student Travel Team custom-design your quintessential Texas senior trip to include your graduating group’s top choices from a menu of Lone Star attractions as long as the state is wide!
You’ll find galleries filled to overflowing with fine to funky art, authentic cowboy culture, dance halls, rodeos, stock shows and shopping. Opportunities to partake of the best Mexican and legendary Tex Mex cuisine are around every corner as well as fantastic and fun theme parks, lush Japanese tea gardens-and the famous 15 mile River Walk, a verdant and winding cypress-lined riverside path through the pulsating heart of the city. Remember the Alamo? Located downtown, this legendary Mission and Texas’ top tourist draw has earned San Antonio the handle, "Alamo City."
Pause for a moment in the very dust where Davy Crockett, Jim Bowie and William Travis died fighting the overwhelming odds for freedom. Boasting a strong military presence unbroken for nearly 300 years, San Antonio has yet another nickname: Military City, USA. National Landmark Fort Sam Houston, one of the Army’s oldest installations and now part of Joint Base San Antonio, boasts the largest collection of carefully maintained historic structures - 900 buildings in total - cataloging different eras of post construction, dating back to the first soldier’s arrival in 1845. While choosing your southwestern student getaway destination, Remember: Alamo City!
