San Antonio is one of the most-celebrated cities in the US. With a rich history and multi-cultural heritage, San Antonio offers endless opportunities to educational groups of all ages.
Historic landmarks abound in this southwest cross section of cultural influences. Explored and settled by the Spanish in the early 18th century, San Antonio was the first civilian settlement in Texas. The city later played a pivotal role in both the founding of Spanish Catholic missions and the Mexican-American War, creating one of the nation's most visited landmarks at the Alamo. A UNESCO Heritage site, the Alamo was the site where a handful of brave Texans defended the fort against the invading, much larger, army of General Santa Anna. Other historic sites include the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, the iconic River Walk, and the King William Historic District where you can find the Steves Homestead Museum.
