Student Youth Itinerary

Explore the River Walk – The heart of San Antonio is the River Walk – a network of cobblestone pathways, gardens and patios that follows the river for more than two miles through the city’s center. One level down from the street, this lush oasis buzzes gently with activity as people stroll and dine at the river’s edge. Visitors can enjoy a morning river boat tour, stroll the cobblestone pathways and stop in for lunch at one of the many alfresco cafés or restaurants.

San Antonio History – Relive history's unforgettable 13 days of glory as 189 Texan and Tejano defenders fight for Texas Independence. IMAX puts you in the middle of this historic action with its six-story screen and six-track stereo sound. You can relive the history with the cry “Remember the Alamo!” at the Imax Theatre and while walking through the monument’s cool stone interior, or through the four other Spanish missions on San Antonio Missions National Historic Park’s Mission Trail. La Villita is one of San Antonio’s original settlements now lined with galleries, boutiques and cafés. A few blocks away, Market Square, the largest Mexican market north of the Rio Grande, flashes with the color and activity of a traditional Mexican Mercado.  Hear the stories of the Latino experience in America through art, history and culture. Market Square is also home to Mi Tierra Restaurant.  This locally owned family restaurant is open 24 hours a day, serving up margaritas, traditional Tex–Mex food and freshly baked pastries.
