5 DAYS - 4 NIGHTS

Featuring a relaxing evening riverboat cruise, Tours of the Historic District, the Japanese Sunken Tea Gardens, the Institute of Texas Culture, San Fernando Cathedral and the ALAMO!

TRIP HIGHLIGTS:
San Antonio is famous for its Riverwalk, and there is no better time to enjoy it than in the springtime.  We stay on the Riverwalk to give you the best location to enjoy this magical environment.  Plus, we will explore the highlights of the area, such as the Japanese Sunken Tea Gardens, located in an abandoned rock quarry, and the Guenther House, the Art Nuevo home of the founder of Pioneer Flour and much more.

You will enjoy time in the Mexican Market for lunch on your own and maybe a bit of shopping if you feel inclined.  We will visit the most visited tourist site in Texas, The Alamo!  Our visit will help distinguish between the history of this amazing mission and the popular myths and legends that surround the site.

We will visit the King William Historic District, a sprawling 25 blocks of downtown San Antonio that made the list of the prettiest neighborhoods in America last year.  The first historic district in Texas, many of the 19th century residences have been beautifully maintained, either as private residences or locally owned businesses or museums.  We will get the chance to tour one of these museums, the Guenther House, an Art Nuevo home built by the founder of Pioneer Flour.

Also on the tour will be a stop at the San Fernando Cathedral, with the original section dating back to the 1730’s.  The dome of the cathedral is the geographical center of San Antonio, and the cathedral features amazing stained glass windows and stone carved stations of the cross.

Another stop will be at the San Antonio Shoe Company, featuring vintage western buildings and a peak into the factory to see how these American made shoes come together.

We will get to explore some of the area’s gems, starting with the Mission San Jose.  One of the best preserved missions, the Mission San Jose was founded in 1720, and the oldest church dates to 1768.  You will learn about how the missions impacted the region, as well as the Tejano population that arose. 

As we head to the Japanese Sunken Tea Gardens, you will be transported to the Land of the Rising Sun, as you walk along the paths, bridges and gazebos, taking in the water features, flowers, and statues.

Lunch on Monday of the trip will be at the top of the Tower of the Americas.  This revolving restaurant provides amazing views of the city while you dine on an incredible buffet.

On Wednesday of the tour we will head out of San Antonio toward the hill country in search for our beautiful Texas wildflowers, which hopefully, will be in full bloom during this time.

Our hotel all four nights will be at the very beautiful and elegant Drury Plaza Riverwalk Hotel, conveniently located right on the riverwalk.  You will be able to enjoy the cocktails and heavy appetizers each night we are here, or venture out and try some of the wonderful restaurants in the area

From Newman’s Castle we head out to the small German community of Burton where you will have theCotton Gin Museum opportunity to visit the Texas Cotton Gin Museum.  Step back in time to when cotton was king.  The historic 1914 Burton Farmers Gin is nestled in the heart of Burton, TX - located on the same site where it was built over 100 years ago!  This historic cotton gin has been visited annually by thousands of visitors.  Visitors are offered the opportunity to “pick cotton”, discover its impact on Texas and American history, and learn how the seed are separated from the soft white fibers.  For all you engine buffs...the gin is home to a 1925 Bessemer Type IV diesel oil engine.  The restored 16 ton “Lady B” is the largest internal combustion engine of its vintage still operating in America.  They still gin and bale cotton each year at their annual Cotton Gin Festival.
