San Antonio, Texas – A city of history and traditionCapture the spirit of RV camping in Texas this fall in San Antonio. This city has a perfect blend of history and tradition all while maintaining status as the eighth largest city in the United States. You're bound to experience the sights, sounds and flavors of the many surrounding heritages including Native Americans, Old Mexico, Germans, the Wild West, African–Americans and the Deep South. San Antonio is rich in history – the first inhabitants, Native Americans, lived by the river. They were followed by a band of Spanish explorers and missionaries that named the river 'San Antonio' because it was founded on the feast day of St. Anthony. The city of San Antonio came to be in 1718 when Father Antonio Olivares established the famous mission known as The Alamo. Located in the heart of downtown, today The Alamo is a shrine and museum.
