Must-sees within an easy drive of San Antonio
San Antonio’s 18th century missions form the heart of one of the city’s main tourist trails. The Spanish colonial buildings are dotted around San Antonio and were the state’s first designated world heritage sites. Surrounded by cypress trees and lush gardens, the historic buildings retain a faded beauty that tourists and locals fall in love with.
If you want some live music during your holiday then head to Austin, which is 80 miles north on the I-35 – a drive of about one hour and 20 minutes. From the airport to supermarkets to a host of festivals including South by Southwest, live music is everywhere here. But if that’s not your bag then try Corpus Christi, on the Texas Gulf coast. This wildlife-rich area is two hours, or 143 miles by car from San Antonio. The beaches here are long and plentiful and if you visit in April you can time your visit with the spring migration, when hundreds of birds spend a few days at the shoreline.
Northeast of Corpus Christi is Victoria, which is just 20 minutes from the coast by car and great spot for camping and water sports, while San Angelo, in west Texas is ranch country. Three hours northwest of San Antonio – a drive of 210 miles – San Angelo will give you a taste of life as a cowboy.
