We love learning about history and visiting units of the National Park Service, so this was a must-do for us. One quick note — there’s so much talk of biking between the four missions (which does look really neat) that I almost missed the fact...More

I love going out on clear days and taking photos of the evening sunset. The Sunrise photos are the best.

We really enjoyed how different the missions were, both in terms of buildings still standing and how they felt. On a warm and sunny afternoon the garden at San Espada was lovely and you really appreciated how far away from civilisation it was.

Wonderful history. Each Mission is beautiful and peaceful with it's own unique character. Tour at your own pace. Toured by car, short drive from Riverwalk area. Plenty of parking at each Mission. San Jose was my favorite. Be sure to check out the movie. Not...More

Love history, but due to a knee injury not a fast walker. Not a problem here. View at your own pace, stay as long as you like. Was not crowded, bring water with you. Weather can get very warm.

The best part of our visit to San Antonio, Texas. We came to see the Alamo, a part of the mission system, but the remainder of the missions made them the better part of the historical part of the trip. A must see (all of...More

My family and I stopped by this location not expecting to stay but a few minutes to take some photos. We ended up staying for an hour. Beautiful and peaceful grounds.

Depending how active you are. Take a bicycle or scooter. There are also many tours available. Take a city tour from the Alamo to see all of San Antonio then follow up by visiting points of interest. I prefer to drive to each... More

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
