More than the Alamo-San Antonio
There is a city in Texas where you don't need a car to see the top attractions. Cab it from the airport to downtown, and you're surrounded by world class museums, such as the McNay and the Briscoe Western Art Museum. The Riverwalk downtown offers a crowded but enjoyable stroll; venture a little further afield on the Riverwalk and explore the historic King William District. Several historic homes, including Edward Steve's Homestead, are open for tours. Boudro's, Bella's and the Boiler House Grill and Wine Garden are among the best restaurants in town. Austin is just two hours away by car; plan on an overnight visit with a stop in Lady Bird's Texas Hill country.
