San Antonio Getaway

With Fredericksburg and the LBJ Ranch

November 13-17, 2018

Tue / Sat - 5 Days

Relax Texas style when you settle into your River Walk hotel on a fun San Antonio getaway! Historic missions, River Walk restaurants and shops, Spanish architecture and a beautiful river centerpiece make this a truly remarkable city worth venturing to time and again.

An after-hours tour at the Alamo gives you an exclusive evening at the historic mission, including a personalized tour of the Alamo church, the Shrine of Texas Liberty, and the Long Barrack Museum—one of the oldest buildings in San Antonio. The legendary Alamo began as a Spanish mission in 1724 and later became a Spanish military stronghold and the site of the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. Explore charming Fredericksburg, named for Prince Frederick of Prussia, nestled in the Hill Country and rich with German heritage, and see the birthplace of the 36th President of the United States, Lyndon B. Johnson. Cruise along the Paseo del Rio (River Walk) that runs through downtown San Antonio, and immerse yourself in the laid-back atmosphere of this fascinating and historic Texas city.

Itinerary Hotel

Tue, Nov 13: Fly to San Antonio, Texas. Check in to your hotel, located directly on the Paseo del Rio (River Walk), a public park and network of walkways along the banks of the San Antonio River lined by restaurants, bars and shops. Get acquainted with the city and learn about its architecture and culture on a relaxing narrated boat cruise along the beautiful Paseo del Rio, one of Texas’s most prized attractions. Enjoy the evening at leisure.

Wed, Nov 14: The day begins with narrated city tour aboard a double decker bus.
