San Antonio, Texas

Native Americans referred to the area as Yanaguana or "refreshing waters." First colonized by the Spanish in the late-1600s, San Antonio has blossomed beyond its refreshing background into a bustling, vibrant city. Now listed in the top 10 of America's largest cities, San Antonio is alive with a rich history and Spanish influence that is sure to educate even the most learned traveler. History, though, isn't the city's only offering.
