Welcome to LodgingGuide's hospitality industry listings for the San Antonio area.
The Mission San Antonio de Valero, popularly known as the Alamo, where a major battle of the Texas revolution against Mexico was fought in 1836, was built by missionaries almost 200 years earlier along the Yanaguana River, so named for its 'clear water' by the Native Americans living there prior to the arrival of the Spanish, who in turn discovered it on the feast of St. Anthony and renamed the river San Antonio. The town has grown up around this landmark, and is now the ninth largest city in the country. San Antonio has done well to preserve its historic sites, as well as the Native American, Spanish, Mexican, Aftrican-American and American Southern traditions of the generations who continue to live here. Many cities have tried to imitate something like San Antonio's River Walk, a cobblestone and flagstone walkway flanking either side of the river for over two miles through, and about 20 feet below, the busiest section of downtown, but no other city's version rivals this paradigm of mid-city oasis. You can take water taxis and open-air cruise boats between the shops, major hotels and performing arts venues lining the River Walk park. Golfing, water skiing, canoeing, tubing, white-water rafting, sailing and fishing venues abound throughout the waterways of the Texas Hill Country which drapes over San Antonio on the north side, along with the dude ranches, hiking and wild game hunting opportunities also available here.
