A great place to relax and enjoy history. There are several things to see along the mission trail but the Missions and the San Antonio River are the highlights!

This is a great trail for any number of activities. It winds along the San Antonio River, in and out of shady spots and is mostly flat. You can even take in the missions along the way.
