This Is The Oldest Place You Can Possibly Go In Texas And Its History Will Fascinate You
Although we were one of the last states added to the Union, Texas history extends much further back in time. Several very important battles took place in our state that were integral to the development of the entire nation. Many of these fights occurred at the San Antonio Missions, which have been preserved and transformed into a national park. Some of them date back to the late 1600s/early 1700s, and visiting them is like stepping through a portal to the past.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
