San Antonio Neighborhoods

San Antonio is one of Texas’ premier tourist cities. It is located at a spot separating the hills from the plains and offers an over abundance of recreational sites and attractions. According to the latest census reports, San Antonio reported the population as being 842,779.

Five Spanish missions were established when San Antonio was an outpost of Imperial Spain, and today, residents and guests can visit them. One of the five missions is the Alamo.

San Antonio offers a series of superb historical and art museums, large parks, the excellent San Antonio Zoo, the Institute of Texas Cultures, a restored Mexican village of 150 known as La Villitia, a plenty of colorful festival events, and the enchanting river walk.

San Antonio is a Mecca of Texas history. Native Americans first lived along the San Antonio River, calling the area "Yanaguana," which means "refreshing waters." A band of Spanish explorers and missionaries came upon the river in 1691, and as it was the feast day of St. Anthony, they named the river "San Antonio."

The actual founding of the city came in 1718 by Father Antonio Olivares, when he established what would one day be known as The Alamo. This is where 189 defenders held the old mission against some 4,000 Mexican troops for 13 days.

Located in the heart of downtown, today The Alamo is a shrine and museum. A tour of downtown San Antonio will uncover centuries of history that include: La Villita, The Spanish Governor's Palace, The San Fernando Cathedral, The Jose Antonio Navarro State Historical Park, Market Square, And the Steves Homestead.
