San Antonio Texas

I leave for San Antonio on Thursday, packing madly!

San Antonio was named for Saint Anthony of Padua, whose feast day is on June 13, by a 1691 Spanish expedition in the area. It is notable for Spanish colonial missions, the Alamo, the River Walk, the Tower of the Americas, the Alamo Bowl, and Marriage Island. 

The River Walk

San Antonio, officially the City of San Antonio, is the seventh most populous city in the United States and the second most populous city in the state of Texas, with a population of 1,409,019. The Greater San Antonio, has a population of over 2.27 million.
