My wife and I toured the missions trail and each of the missions were breath taking in their own way. The history and the sites were mind blowing. I could do this trip over again.

Lots of history to see in Sa, if you've got a way to visit all 5 of the historic old Spanish missions that San Antonio has to offer, do it, you'll be glad you did.

If you appreciate learning about history, and every citizen should, the San Antonio Missions offer a great tour of early Texas history. Read the signs and follow the suggested route. Great place for photography enthusiasts.

The San Antonio Missions National Park is fabulous. It is centered on Mission San Jose, one of the most complete missions. Here you get an idea of what ot was like to live in central Texas in the early 1800's. Take the ranger tour.

This group for four historic missions are well worth the adventure. It could be a full day if you walk/bike the Mission Trail (separate reviewed activity) or a half day of you drive to each. Free, ample parking at every mission. No admission fee. Each...More

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 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
