The Alamo in San Antonio, Texas
Corbis
Wednesday, February 13, 2008

When Davy Crockett left Tennessee in 1835, he announced, "You can all go to hell, and I'll go to Texas." Like modern-day visitors to San Antonio, he headed for the Alamo, which remains one of the nation's must-see historic sites. San Antonio also offers some of the Lone Star State's best golf, tasty Tex-Mex and raucous nightlife along the River Walk. And if your buddies still aren't impressed by all that, well, you know where they can go.

HOW TO ENJOY SAN ANTONIO
by Robert Gamez, the 2006 Valero Texas Open winner

WHERE TO DRINK "Hills & Dales Ice House, a hole-in-the- wall near La Cantera, has all kinds of beers. It's sort of a biker-type bar."

WHERE TO EAT "I've eaten at Martha's, a Mexican restaurant near La Cantera, many times. My cousin knows the owner—they just bring out plates for us. It's hard to get a bad Mexican meal in San Antonio."
