A lot of history can also be discovered while there so spend some time to enjoy the beauty of the church, history and surrounding sights.
The spired ceiling and the ornate tapestry of the Via Del a Rosa of Christ were very lovely to view while the wedding ceremony was going on.

The base also offers great landmarks for visiting and of course an amazing BMT graduation ceremony.
For many, this is why they're visiting San Antonio: They have a family member who is a new, graduating airman and after the graduation ceremony they spend the weekend seeing the various sights downtown.

Particularly fascinating was a 20-minute video on the archaeological excavation at the Gault Site, which is making discoveries about Clovis culture dating back 13,000 years.
Also, while we there, they had a sort of education day with table exhibits by folks representing different cultures so it was a great view of older and newer version of these cultures in Texas.

Our tour guide, Melvin of San Antonio Detours added much detail in describing the history of this site which provided the building materials - bricks and stone for this and the other area mission communities.
They have done a great job at preserving and maintaining these historical sites and educating the public.

This mission has spectacular architecture, is easy to access, and our best views were just after a spring rain, as the photos below will show.

Excellent menu, delicious food and drinks with a fabulous view of the City of San Antonio which changes minute by minute as the restaurant rotates 360 degrees each hour.
The views are as spectacular as from the top of the Empire State Building in NYC, from the Prudential Tower in Boston, MA, and even compares with a trip up the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France.

The house is in the King Willam District that has many great homes to view (from the street), so park the car and stroll around.

This review is really about the San Antonio Missions AA baseball team but TA forces you to the stadium site.
We bought a package deal off of the groupon site for a great price with parking, batting practice entry, and a picture with the mascot.

Great venue, great staff, great sound, great lights, the decor is amazing, its organized, its cool, great views from everywhere, great live venue, next to the famous Riverwalk and close to The Alamo too.
The mezzanine and balcony seating are upstairs with good viewing; except for the safety railing, in the aisles, it's a little distracting of full view of the stage.
