Travel Haiku - San Antonio, Texas (United States)


San Antonio
to the river, to the church
for a piece of American past

San Antonio
we visit our past by
the river, roads and the Church

the river, the roads and Church
point us to our heritage
San Antonio

For a lesson in early American history, head to San Antonio. A city influenced by colonial Spain, the Native Americans, Mexico, and the early pioneers, you can retrace the past by visiting the Alamo or one of five 18th-century mission churches. Ride a barge down the San Antonio River, the heart of the country's oldest and most extensive Spanish-colonial water system, then wander the streets of La Villita, one of the first Spanish settlements and later home to German and French pioneers.
