You must take the Mission Trail! There is no charge and the history is fascinating! You can stay at each mission for as long as you like. We were there on Palm Sunday and my grandson that I am raising had the honor of ringing the church bells at one of the missions. He is still talking about that!
They can easily all be seen before lunch if you are at the first one around 9 AM. We did the Alamo after lunch. They have done a remarkable job of restoring the structures. If you are only planning on visiting San Antonio just once in your lifetime, you must make this trail one of your attractions!
