Day 1

SAN ANTONIO RIVERWALK: Settle into The Drury Inn, your home away from home, located right on the San Antonio Riverwalk and close to restaurants and shops. Don't forget to enjoy the hotel's evening "Kickback" for snacks and drinks.

Day 2

SAN ANTONIO CITY TOUR: Today, a local step-on guide helps you understand the rich, multi-cultural history of this fascinating city. Hint: there's more to it than the Alamo!

THE ALAMO: History comes alive in an IMAX presentation of the 13-day battle of the Texas Revolution that involved James Bowie and Davey Crockett. After the movie, tour this historical site.

MISSION SAN JOSE: Founded in 1720, the mission is the largest in Texas and features ruins, a church, and granary. You'll marvel at the Rose Window, sculpted in 1775 in the church sacristy. It is one of the finest examples of baroque architecture in North America.

SAN ANTONIO RIVER CRUISE: This narrated float down the famed canal sets the mood for your whole stay, a truly magical voyage. After, you'll have free time to explore the River Walk, known as "The American Venice," all decked out for the holiday! In addition to millions of decorative lights and abundant restaurants, you'll find a variety of stores where you can get a little Christmas shopping done!
