Counting the Alamo, there are five missions spread out over about 10 miles. All are well preserved with good historical signage. Mission San Jose and Mission Concepcion are the standouts, but all are interesting.

A short drive out of San Antonio, there are 4 missions you can visit (plus the Alamo of course). All free, self guided tours, but there is a park ranger led tour also available as well. Really enjoyed and learned allot.

We went on a guided tour of the missions as part of our holiday tour. It gives great insight of the history of Texas and why the missions were built

Rent a bike and take a 2.5 mile ride to visit this mission. Amazing slice of history right in the middle of it all. Felt more like Europe than San Antonio.

A good day out. Take time to take in as much as possible. Staff are very friendly and helpfull. Some of the myths are revieled. I was very suprised at the amount of British that were there to defend the Alamo.

Our guide took us here and gave a most informative visit. A bit wobbly at time but suitable for wheelchair users. Toilets at the entrance - use them!

There are several missions along the San Antonio River. The Alamo is famous however we really enjoyed the others just as much, if not more. We highly recommend taking the time to visit them all.

Each missoin is very different. Don't simply think think you can visit one, and you've seen them all. Each one has character all its own.

If your husband is active, he can rent a bike and take a trail along the river that goes to all the missions. It is a beautiful ride. You can go online to see where he can rent the bike.

I would go to Mission Espade Because it is a rural setting and will give you a closer approximation of what the missions may have looked like before being engulfed by the City. Slightly south of the mission before you cross... More
