Lone Star Resort is just 3 hours from San Antonio, home of the Alamo. A Texas icon, the Alamo served as the place where over 170 men chose to fight to the death for the freedom of Texas. This shrine is a must see for anyone visiting the San Antonio area.
San Antonio is steeped with other historical sites, such as the five Spanish missions located in and around the downtown area.
The Riverwalk is the place to be for nightlife, dining, and shopping. El Mercado, the largest Mexican marketplace outside of Mexico, is part of San Antonio's Market Square shopping district.
The world famous San Antonio Botanical Gardens are located just north of downtown. The Gardens provide a beautiful and relaxing atmosphere that is educational, romantic, and inspiring.
If you crave more excitement, Fiesta Texas and Sea World are just outside of town in the Texas Hill Country. Fiesta Texas is not just for the kids! There is plenty of live entertainment, concerts, a waterpark, and, of course, world-class rollercoasters. Sea World is much more than watching Shamu. There is fine dining, evening concerts, adventure camps, and more!
Just north of San Antonio, up Highway 281, is Johnson City. Named for President Lyndon B. Johnson’s grandfather, Johnson city is the site of the former President’s childhood home.
