San Antonio & Corpus Christi, Texas : Trip Report
While there we visited the Alamo, the other Spanish Missions and enjoyed restaurants along the River Walk. Once I ran out of things to do on my own in San Antonio I drive around 150 miles to Corpus Christi on the Gulf of Mexico coast to see what was shaking there.
One cannot visit San Antonio without paying a visit to the Alamo. Here about 180 Texans fought against about 5000 Mexican soldiers in an attempt to keep Texas free.

The Alamo is only one of five Spanish Missions within the city limits of San Antonio. I spent a couple hours driving down Mission Road visiting them all.
