San Antonio, Texas

 
 

San Antonio is perhaps best known as the site of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo, in which as many as 250 Texans were massacred by Mexican soldiers during the Texas Revolution."Remember the Alamo" became a battle cry in the future battles which ultimately resulted in victory for the Texans. In the battle, the folk hero frontiersman Davy Crockett was killed. On July 15, 2015, the Alamo, and the remaining San Antonio missions were named America’s 23rd UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Today San Antonio remains one of the fastest growing cities in America. It is the seventh largest city in the United States and second largest in the state of Texas. Over 20,000,000 people visit every year. The River Walk, a network of shops and attractions connected by walkways along the San Antonio River is a popular attraction. San Antonio’s only professional sports team, the Spurs, have won five NBA championships since 1999.
