The area is a beautiful to walk around and learn a little bit about the history. It's free and we felt like we covered it in about 35-45 minutes. Worth the short drive in from the downtown area.

The missions are interesting stops. We were only able to see three as they close at 5pm, but we are happy we got to see them nonetheless. If you have a free day in SA you might as well go and explore them.

It is definitely worth spending a morning or afternoon driving to all four of the missions that are technically part of the National Historical Park. When you add in the Alamo, the five together make up the San Antonio Missions UNESCO World Heritage Site. The...More

Visit all the missions... most are familiar with the Alamo, but there are plenty more to see in a short driving distance. Some are large, some are small, but great for the historian and avid photographer.

A great experience to visit all of the five Missions in San Antonio. It really gives you a feel for the history and architecture of the area. Great to see history saved and not torn down for a shopping center.

I have always driven a car. The missions are spaced about 2.5 miles apart, with the furthest being about 11 miles south of downtown. I googled the hop-on-hop-off bus and its route doesn't go to any of the missions (besides... More

I'm sorry, but the answer to that question depends so much on personal preferences it is very hard to answer. There are dozens of good hotels in the Riverwalk area if you want to stay there. If you are looking for less... More

I don't think they do, as the missions are spread out and not within the confines of downtown San Antonio. There is, however, a very inexpensive public bus that stops at each mission. You catch it across from the Alamo. That... More
